Moon Tahiti from Avalon Travel

Avalon Travel Publishing has launched the 7th edition of Moon Tahiti by David Stanley. Since 1989, Moon Tahiti has been the leading travel guidebook to French Polynesia and this new edition incorporates the latest restaurant, resort, and transportation news. Stanley has been covering the South Pacific for over three decades and he knows the region better than any other travel writer.

Packed into Moon Tahiti’s 353 indexed pages are 53 maps and 122 photos. The maps are clearly labeled without the confusing legends and keys which make other guidebooks hard to use. There are five maps of Tahiti, four of Moorea, and eight of the Leeward Islands.

The 24-page color section at the front of the book has been expanded with four suggested itineraries and three travel strategies. The six travel chapters offer detailed advice on sightseeing, accommodations, food, transportation, and facilities with exact prices are quoted. Must See and Top Pick codes help readers choose what to see and do. Moon Tahiti’s 106 pages of reference material are tucked unobtrusively into the back of the book. The Background chapter introduces French Polynesia while Essentials covers getting there and around.

Moon Tahiti has been designed to compliment other media and internet addresses and emails are provided whenever possible. There is much information not found on commercial websites or in the free brochures. David Stanley researches his books incognito and eschews the "hospitality" many other travel writers enjoy and the listings are thorough and critical. When one considers the high cost of a Tahitian vacation, the price of this guidebook is quite low and the savvy traveler will order a copy.
