Unforgettable French Polynesia

Our one week in French Polynesia was our best winter escape ever! The weather was perfect; only rained one afternoon throughout the one week. I usually had no luck in terms of weather but this time was definitely the best to start a new year. Seeing the overwater bungalows on the cover of magazines was…

Bora Bora: Last Moments of Paradise

Our 4 days in paradise has came to an end but thanks to Intercontinental Bora Bora Thalasso, we got an extra half free day! The last day of vacation usually was usually very unproductive – wake up, get to airport, wait for boarding (not to mentioned delays), on the plane, layover, on the plane, and then…

Bora Bora – Not Enough of You

Did I ever tell you why we never stay at all-inclusive hotels or destinations for our vacation? We felt like in all-inclusive hotels, we just stuck in the hotel sleeping and eating; we definitely don’t like those cheesy free activities nor shows. The hotel grounds might be beautiful but that won’t fill our whole vacation;…

Bora Bora: Swimming With Sharks!

It has been one of my dream to be surrounded by colorful tropical fishes and hopefully it’ll come true today! I booked months in advanced with Raanui Tours for the snorkeling tour and swimming with sharks, oh yes it’s one of the must-dos in Bora Bora! I reconfirmed the tour yesterday just to make sure, meeting at Intercontinental…

Bora Bora: Paradise Redefined

Paradise just like beauty – on the eye of the beholder. Bora Bora definitely redefined what paradise means in my mind.  Waking up with the view of overwater bungalows was so unreal! Even though the bed was so comfortable, I couldn’t gave up one second of Bora Bora! As my husband was lying on bed…

Bora Bora: It’s Real!

Bora Bora – a paradise that I thought could only be seen on the front cover of a magazine – I couldn’t believe it (and I still can’t) that I have made it all the way there!!! After I visited the absolutely gorgeous Moorea, I asked myself how much prettier could Bora Bora be? Well, it did…

More Moorea!

Waking up looking at the tall ceiling – the wooden structure with the cross patterns of straws, ahhh it wasn’t a dream, we really stayed in an overwater bungalow! It was probably the tallest ceiling of all the hotel rooms we have stayed in! Walking out to the terrace, the blue sky and white clouds were…

First Time Staying In Overwater Bungalow!

Waking up and looking at the island in the distance, yes it is blue sky and white clouds in Moorea! Please wait for us! We took our suitcases and everything with us to have breakfast at an open-air area right in front of the reception. There were tables there with cereals and juices but need to…

From Hawaii to Tahiti

French Polynesia, here we come!!! But first…the flight to get there. We flew from Kauai 9:19 am flight but once again was asked to take an earlier flight due to overbooking to Honolulu. But the good thing was we told the agent that we are having a connecting flight to Tahiti, she checked our baggage…
