If you want to taste local specialties, come here to watch local traditional performances. In the evening, here is a big night market. The local torch dance is performed on the stage here. You can buy a local delicacy and find a seat to sit down and enjoy it. There are also some traditional handicrafts, you can stroll around after eating and watching, if you have something you like, you can buy it. Compared to the hot sun here during the day, I prefer the excitement at night.
The day and night here are so different, two styles. It is very quiet during the day, and there are not many people on the road. At night, the square is full of people, there are tourists and local craftsmen. There is a handmade market here, where you can see traditional local bands playing on the music stage. The popularity is very high, and the audience under the stage is also very high.
In the small square next to the pier, you can see the cruise ships docking next to the pier during the day, but during the day it is more sunny and there are not many people on the square. It belongs to the night here. The night is like a night market. Various performances, small commodities, and small carts selling local food are coming out.
Come here slowly after dinner, it is very lively, less the heat during the day, and more local food and performances. It’s nice to come here to have supper, watch the torch dance and feel the local people’s customs.
Here is the center of Papeete’s nightlife. It is located next to the pier. When you come here at night, there are a variety of colorful food trucks, serving a variety of local cuisine, Chinese food and dessert snacks.
