French Polynesia is an overseas territory of France. It is a collection of about 130 islands, the most notable of which is Tahiti. It employs its own government, but is still a part of Greater France. It has a population of 267,000 and speaks French as an official language. It is located near the Cook Islands of New Zealand, the Pitcairn Islands of the United Kingdom and Kiribati.

It is the first of France's many overseas territories to be visited by the race. The 22nd season spent two legs here, though neither took place on Tahiti. Instead, teams visited the gorgeous tropical getaway of Bora Bora.


Political Subdivisions

French Polynesia is divided into five Administrative Divisions. The Amazing Race has visited one of these.
