Tahiti: the playground of the rich, the famous, and the travel bloggers

One of the things I am a strong believer in is that opinions should be expressed with at least some factual backing to them. A number of years ago, I went to the Cook Islands, which I thought was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to – particularly the lagoons of Aitutaki and Rarotonga. At the time, I remember hearing opinions that it was "like Tahiti but with less tourists and at a tenth of the price". I would then go around passing this opinion on to people, and the question I immediately received back most of the time was, "I see, but have you been to Tahiti?" and all I could do was say no – it was based on factual Internet research. We all know everything on the Internet is always true, but at some point, this dialogue got old; so I decided to fix it… and went to Tahiti.
