    Samoa and the South Pacific are one of the last unspoiled frontiers of travel - protected by the vast Pacific Ocean and their relative remoteness. I almost hate to write about it but the people of this fair region need to attract discerning, conscious travellers. I like the gogobot interface and am keen to see how this mesh between user generated content, social media, search and trip planning will work. Until I get my own information up here check:www.polynesianxplorer.com and www.samoa.travel

    Classic polynesia, a place with no windows or walls, everything moves at island speed. A sleepy paradise.

    Of the Pacific Islands we have returned to Samoa 5 times. We love the big island the most. The nicest place to stay is the Old Aggie Greys hotel.
    On the big Island , any where on Manuse beach is fine.

Description

Halfway between Hawaii and New Zealand, visitors may be inclined to utter “aloha” upon arrival at this Polynesian island nation. Volcanic craters, lush rainforests, coral reefs and a contagious joie de vivre abound here, striking a chord of similarity with its far-off US neighbor. However, Samoa harbors a proud distinction from surrounding island nations with its traditional culture that adheres ... read more
to fa’a samoa way of life, placing great value in community and hospitality. (Don’t be surprised if local strangers greet you with an easy smile or friendly hello.) While you would be wrong to miss crossing the lava fields of Savaii, snorkeling among the bountiful marine life offshore or hiking along the rugged sea cliffs of Upolu, it may be a struggle not to give in to the languid lifestyle integral to local culture, opting instead to spend your vacation lounging on the beach. Be sure to spend time becoming immersed in Samoan culture by visiting some of the traditional Samoan villages, like Letui or Taga; then stop by Apia where visitors can dine at a casual restaurant serving Western cuisine or gather around an umu for a fire-smoked meal. If by the end of your stay you feel the need to take a piece of Samoa home with you, take advantage of the local artistic talent and get a traditional Samoan tattoo.
