A space of discovery...  
  and initiation  

The 2nd edition of Monoi Here was certainly rich in novelties !
This year a space dedicated to discovery allowed visitors to get acquainted with the joys of formulating, inaugurating "the Monoi road", becoming aware of biodiversity and even winning a trip.

Tradition and Botany
  Numerous vegetal species make up the composition of Monoi. For many people, Monoi Here was the opportunity to discover the wealth and originality of French Polynesian botanical resources.

The Monoi Route
  Another novelty this year was the original itinerary of the "Monoi Route", with 11 planned stops on the map : Tiaré Tahiti fields, refinery, soap factory, cosmetics laboratory. A 40km-discovery route between Motu uta and Papara which already looks like it's going to become a perennial tourist activity, if not a cult one.

Le Laboratoire du Formulateur
  For the first time, based on the original idea from Le Laboratoire du Formulateur (The Formulation Laboratory), the public was invited to get to grips with the formula of a cosmetic product. The chosen few were lucky enough to leave with a product formulated by their own hands.

The Monoi Here Big Draw
  1,746 people participated in the Big Draw organized by the monoi week. The first prize, a return ticket to Los Angeles awarded by Air Tahiti Nui, was won by Etienne Teotahi de Punaauia, caretaker of the Cultural Centre.

Thanks to the 11 sponsors who awarded the 8 prizes of the Monoi Here draw.
