2013大溪地积分游 Tahiti/Moorea/Bora Bora/Hawaii - 功课篇

 


五月底的行程,功课做的东一榔头西一棒子。干脆开一个功课楼,督促自己整理计划。填的速度会很慢。


 


欢迎smallx, echoshe, ksun, 约旦猫各位大溪地权威光临指导,也欢迎今年有类似计划的mm一起来讨论


 


先找几张美图洗洗眼睛

关于积分游

从最初无意识的接触milage/points也有好几年了,会时不时的看看刘总的博客,偶尔看到好deal申请张信用卡,也偶尔上上flyertalk。

真正感兴趣应该是从11年底12年初,慢慢有点上瘾。看到刘总说的,“
在辛辛苦苦为资本家工作一年后,可以到自己想去的地方,充分享受一个高质量的免费假期,免费游世界”,深以为然。

从此经常蹲点flyertalk, flyertea, mitbbs money版,以及刘总和美国的很多blogger的blog。

到现在为止,我跟那些大牛们比可能连个小虾米都算不上,但还在这条“积分游世界”的道路上孜孜不倦的努力着,也希望以后为家人安排更多次的高质量的积分游!

我知道华人上藏龙卧虎,肯定有很多jm是里程游积分游的大牛,也希望可以来共同切磋,开发更多的可能性~~


大溪地游的积分部分

 

机票,用American Airline的里程,另外的选择是可以用Delta的里程




LAX-PPT 飞Air Tahiti Nui,每人37,500 AA Miles,要打电话订加每人$25的电话订票费。因为LG时间不定,拖延之下没有订到商务舱,其实最开始查票的时候大把大把的商务舱available。


PPT-HNL-LAX 飞Hawaii Airline,商务舱每人62,500 AA miles,免费在Honolulu停留,可以直接在AA网站上订。(如果是经济舱,也是37,500 AA miles)




酒店


Moorea Intercontinental 2晚,本来不想住IC,但从1/18号开始Moorea IC的兑换标准竟然从30k降至25k每晚,叫我如何忍心放过


Moorea Hilton -- 50000 Hilton points, 本来三晚改成一晚,因为Moorea Hilton的评价实在太好了,所以想住一晚感受一下。


Bora Bora Hilton -- 145000 Hilton points for 4 nights,金卡会员免费上网免费早餐,会付费升级为水上屋。




具体细节不一一详述了,如果感兴趣积分细节的mm有什么问题我再回答~~


大溪地游积分cover不了的部分


就像很多前辈所说的,游大溪地,即使积分游,仍然是昂贵的。




1. 岛间机票或ferry,如果有citi thank you premier card可以省33%左右。但如果是三岛连飞,实际上thank you network查的票要比Air Tahiti自己网站价位高一些。


2. 所有的Hotel都是基本房,如果要升级成高级水上屋,可以和resort联系付费,一般一晚$200左右


3. 各种活动,transfer, meals, pearl....

签证

大溪地属于French Polynesian(法属波利尼西亚),如果是美国公民不需要签证。如果还是“猪肝红小本本”的持有者,要去法国领馆签申根签证。

只能面签,而且要提前预约。Houston领馆的预约地址: http://consulfrance-houston.org/spip.php?article468

签French Overseas Territories - Short stay visa,签证费很便宜,大概$11-12,可以用信用卡付。 http://www.consulfrance-houston.org/spip.php?article342

具体签证材料要求(所有文件要再准备一份复印件):

  • Original passport or travel document (+ ONE COPY of the identity pages). Your passport must have been issued less than 10 years ago, be valid for at least three months after your return to the US and have at least 2 blank visas pages left.
     
  • 1 short stay application form completely and clearly filled out. Please print in black. Indicate also your phone numbers and e-mail.
     
  • A proof of resident status in the USA and its copy.( green card, valid US visa and copy of valid I-20 or valid I-AP66, visas…) if you are not a US citizen. Applications for a short stay visa from holders of B1/B2 visas in the United States are subject to a heavier and longer procedure, and the personal appearance is required.
     
  • the visa issued by the country of final destination, if needed.
     
  • Reservation with detailed itinerary. The roundtrip airline tickets will be required only when the visa is issued.
     
  • A letter from your insurance company stating that you will be covered for at least $ 50,000 during your stay in Europ for any medical and rapatriation expenses.
              ---这个可以用smallx推荐的www.insuremytrip.com,每天$1-2的样子,符合标准。
  • Proof of employment (for example, letter from the company stating continuing employment after the period of leave, and last payslip).
     
  • Depending on the purpose of the trip , one of the documents listed below:
    • For tourism : Hotel reservation, proof of registration with an organized tour, attestation of accommodation , etc., for the duration of your stay.
    • For business : official business invitation letter from a company in France .
    • For a private visit (family or friends) : Attestation of accommodation . Your host in the territories can obtain this document at the City Hall, by showing a proof of identity and 2 proofs of lodging (rental contract, and phone bill or power bill…)
  • Proof of sufficient funds to cover the cost of your stay : 3 last bank statements (+ 1 copy), travelers checks if visiting the United States, 100 dollars per day are suggested. For business: letter from the employer indicating the name and address of the companies in France, and guaranteeing the travel expenses;
     
  • For a minor, if traveling alone, a notarized parental authorization signed by both parents or guardian. If the minor travels with 1 parent, an authorization signed by the 2nd parent is required .

等我签完证,再update有什么要注意的。

另附加州LA法领馆的地址 http://www.consulfrance-losangeles.org/spip.php?rubrique206

岛间交通

从美国到大溪地,只有两处可以直飞。一是洛杉矶,每天1-2班,Air Tahiti Nui和France Airline。二是火奴鲁鲁,每个星期一班Hawaii Airline。国际航班都是飞到主岛Tahiti (PPT) 。

从Tahiti去其他小岛可以坐Air Tahiti的岛间飞机,或者是乘坐Ferry。

1. Ferry
http://www.aremiti.net/

很多人从Tahiti到Moorea都选择ferry,有几处优点:

-- 便宜,相对于$70左右的机票,ferry只要3000XPF一人
-- 一天多班,时间灵活,不需要提前买票(除非是要带着车过去)
-- 风景很美,据说到达Moorea的时候,从湛蓝的海水中升起一片小岛,蔚为壮观。

当然也有缺点

-- 相对于直接换飞机的简洁,要从机场打车($25-30)到码头,然后上船,两趟搬运行李,麻烦
-- 结束的时间比较早,有的时候下午3-4点就是最后一班了,要把握好时间。

2. 岛间机票
http://www.airtahiti.aero/home.php

如果要飞两个以上的岛屿,强烈推荐这种岛间机票。其实用Multi-islands查出来的票价比Ferry+两趟单程机票要便宜。

举个例子
PPT-MOZ-BOB-PPT

如果三岛连飞,用multi-island查出来的票价是43900XFP
如果先Ferry从Tahiti到Moorea,再MOZ-BOB-PPT,票价是3000XFP+47322XFP,无形中多了$100的票价。

究其原因,其实用multi-island查询的时候,Air Tahiti自动apply的是air pass的价钱 (http://www.airtahiti.aero/articles.php?id=69),for some reason,这种飞法也没有额外的tax要付,所以反而比少飞一段的价钱还要低。

而且从我这几天订票以及和航空公司联系的经历看来,强烈推荐早早定下岛间机票,原因如下:

-- 热门的航班很容易提前几个月就sold out,我当时订的一个航班,订下的第二天就sold out,然后一直到现在也没再显示available
-- Air Tahiti竟然和Southwest Airline的政策类似,改机票不收费!!!这对于行程不确定的游客来说太重要了!

         -- highlights: Belvedere, Fruit Juice Factory/plantations of pineapple, Agricultural School, Cook's bay & Opunohu bay, Volcano's caldera,  Toatea's view pt..


         -- 强烈推荐租车,可以用Avis或者Albert。TA强推Avis,车最新最好,在airport, ferry和IC都有counter, about $100 per day


         -- 不推荐scooter,不安全(http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g309685-i1796-k5479483-Scooter_Hire-Moorea_Society_Islands.html)


         -- 旅游公司的环岛游,Albert/Toreanui 3300XPF,如租车则不必参加


 


  * Snorkeling


        -- Hilton是Moorea上snorkeling最好的地方


 


  * Lagoonarium in Moorea


       -- 强烈推荐,甚至比Bora Bora的Lagoonarium好,上午11点,下午2点,一天喂两次鲨鱼,不是一直开。


 


  * Lagoon Tour


       -- 参团,都是snorkeling+stingray+shark feeding然后motu上BBQ,一人约7000XPF


       -- 如果去Lagoonarium就不必参加,不去Lagoonarium,也可以save给BoraBora,因为BoraBora的snorkeling/diving无敌

      -- 在洲际IC里边,有小朋友项目


 


  * Whale & Dolphin Watching


      -- Dr. Michael Poole, August-October only

      -- 最著名的Tiki Village


      -- 每周六,周二,Moorea Hilton的show,8点开始,seafood buffet (some guests said you could watch the show for free without purchasing the dinner)

Moorea Transfer:


 


www.toreanui.com  enttoreanui@mail.pf


http://www.albert-transport.net/transferts_us.php?nx=TRF  1000XFP each way


Bus -- There is only 1 road in Moorea which goes around the island and the entrance to the Hilton is right off the road. 


 



Moorea Eating:


 


http://millionmilesecrets.com/2012/10/11/hilton-moorea-food/


 


* 如果有谁以后去moorea的hilton住,我一定强烈推荐出门左转走5分钟的那家pizza小店。(yuedanmao) Pizza 1500XPF, burger 500XPF, hot dog 250XPF


* Hilton Resteraunt Rotui is over-priced, Margarita pizza (1650XPF) is pretty good.


* Hilton Breakfast buffet is served at the Arii Vahine restaurant, pretty good. 


* Resteraunts offering free transportation - Rudy's, Sud in Maharepa etc.


 


Moorea Airport


 


* Also have ATM


* Can get a great baguette ham/cheese sandwich for 280 xpf, which is going to be the cheapest meal you'll have at Moorea
