Hi everyone, today I would like to share some very good place to visit for vacation, resting, honeymoon or any activities which is need the beautiful and gorgeousness scenario. It is a bit to far from us in Malaysia, but it will be worth it. You judge it yourself… enjoy weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee =)

Bora Bora is an island in the Leeward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia, an overseas collectivity of France in the Pacific Ocean. The island, located about 230 kilometres (140 mi) northwest of Papeete, is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. In the center of the island are the remnants of an extinct volcano rising to two peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu, the highest point at 727 metres (2,385 ft). The original name of the island in the Tahitian language might be better rendered as Pora Pora, meaning “First Born”; an early transcription found in 18th- and 19th century accounts, is Bolabolla (or “Bollabolla”).

The major settlement, Vaitape is on the western side of the island, opposite the main channel into the lagoon. The products of the island are mostly limited to what can be obtained from the sea and coconut trees, which were historically of economic importance for copra.



It that amazing? yeah I think. I love it, it so fantastic. Hope I can reach there once in my life.
