Hello .. i am greek and i my dream is to go to bora bora but i dont want t spend 5K only for flight.. DO you know if i can go t bora bora from another european country .with cheaper flights? THANKS :)
My recommendation would be to purchase the flight to and from Paris. This will route you through Los Angeles.
It may be less expensive for you to purchase flights that are Greece to Paris, Paris Round Trip to PPT (Papeete in Tahiti), and then PPT to Bora Bora, all separately. This would break up a significant amount of the cost, give you more flexibility on when you fly and the nice part is that PPT is convenient for good food, and you can take the ferry to Moorea for a couple days.
Thanks for the tips.. i also want t ask you how many days should i stay to see the island
.. a week ? 10 days? a year :P
I personally went on a honeymoon there (French Polynesia), and spent 5 nights in Moorea, and 2 nights in Bora Bora (as it was 5x more expensive). You can see the whole island in 2-3 days, and personally I thought the sealife etc was better on Moorea from a hotel perspective.
how was the whole honeymoon experience, would you recommend to go there?
