Tahiti Tourisme Launches Online Video Contest

Six Couples or Families to Win a Trip to the Ultimate Paradise

EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2009) - Looking for an investment that will pay off for years? How about love? The "Invest In Your Love" video contest will send six winning couples or families to the legendary and exotic islands of Tahiti.

Beginning today, couples and families can submit creative, entertaining and interesting videos to the Invest In Your Love contest via www.investinyourlove.com showcasing why they need (and deserve) an escape to the famed islands of Tahiti. Videos that receive the highest number of public votes move on as finalists and an expert panel will select winners. There are six contest periods for a chance to win. See investinyourlove.com for full rules, regulations and a "how-to submit" video explanation.

"We want to see everything from romantic and heartwarming -- to fun and offbeat," says Al Keahi, managing director, Tahiti Tourisme North America. "Show us why you deserve a vacation to the islands of Tahiti. If you have been to Tahiti before, share your favorite experiences and memories. Be original, be creative and most of all have fun with the videos."

Tahiti Tourisme will handle all travel arrangements, including international air on award-winning Air Tahiti Nui, inter-island transportation and six nights' deluxe accommodations on two of Tahiti's 118 islands and daily breakfast and dinner. Adventures may include swimming with rays and sharks; a picnic on a private islet; a 4x4 safari tour along volcanic cliffs; spa treatments and dive excursions for select trips.

Those not submitting a video can still find hot online special offers, a package deal of the week, discounts on meals and excursions and bonus savings redeemable when travelers book their vacations. For a little inspiration, a downloadable Tahiti widget offers a breathtaking slideshow of the islands of Tahiti including interactive travel maps and real-time weather reports.

The islands of Tahiti are much closer than many travelers think, only an eight-hour non-stop flight from Los Angeles with daily departures on Air Tahiti Nui. Receiving as many tourists in an entire year as Hawaii gets in about 12 days, and only a few more hours in the air, Tahiti is truly a convenient, ideal escape. The friendly Polynesian people, cultural experiences, signature overwater bungalows, extraordinary cuisine and activities in a pristine environment are just a few of many reasons to consider the South Seas paradise for a vacation.
