With 118 islands scattered across the South Pacific in 5 distinct archipelagos, a trip to French Polynesia is a paradise choose-your-own-adventure.

With so many islands to choose from and so many different ways to experience the country, you'll be overwhelmed with information.

As an island nation, flying in is going to be your one and only way to get into the country.
