Bora Bora with a lagoon, beautiful beaches, and world class resorts makes this a favorite destination for the rich and famous.  A bit pricey for my pocket book, but it's understandable why people are willing to pay big bucks to live in paradise for a few days. 


Dec 21, Bora Bora: We were
planning to do the same on Bora Bora by renting a car and exploring on our own, but the Avis car rental place wanted to charge $118 for two hours. We took the $35 van tour of the island instead. We learned very quickly that Bora Bora is an expensive place to visit and live. In addition to the picture taking stops, we visited a place where they were demonstrating the batik
designed Polynesian moomoo, and the sale of the local crafts of wood sculptures and necklaces. We also had a stop at a new resort hotel, Sofitel Motu, with both over water bungalows as well as those on land adjacent to the white sand beach. The place looked empty of customers. The shops close to the pier seemed busy for a place where everything seemed over-priced.
