Don’t get shut in a stuffy tour bus, taking photos through grimy windows, when you go sightseeing around Noumea. On the Anse Vata Tchou Tchou Train, ride around some of Noumea’s idyllic natural landmarks and exciting inner-city neighborhoods in an open-air carriage. Start your ride at Mount Ouen Toro and head around hotspots like the Promenade Pierre Vernier, Anse Vata Bay, and the Notre Dame Du Pacifique lookout.
