Tahiti Then and Now Part I

We recently stumbled on this blog post featuring vintage photos of Tahiti and it inspired us! We decided to show you side-by-side pictures of Tahiti from both the past and present, so you can see how very little the islands have changed over time. Tahiti remains a beautiful, pristine paradise with the warm, welcoming spirit of the Polynesian people still very much intact. Don’t just take our word for it—see for yourself! Then check out Part II.
