Traditional island life mostly untouched by tourism.

Situated in the heart of the Polynesian Triangle, Samoa is a small island nation bordered by American Samoa to the east and Fiji to the south.

If you’re looking for an idyllic South Pacific island nation to add to your travel bucket list, Samoa should be at the top. With its pristine beaches, lush rainforests and friendly locals, Samoa is the perfect place to unwind and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

One of the best things about Samoa is that it’s still relatively untouched by tourism. So if you’re looking for a place to get away from the crowds, Samoa is the perfect choice. That being said, there are still plenty of activities and attractions to keep you busy during your stay. From hiking and waterfall swimming to visiting traditional villages and snorkeling in the crystal-clear water.

Samoa’s cuisine is a mix of Polynesian, European and Asian influences. One of the most popular dishes is oka, which is raw fish that has been marinated in lime juice, coconut milk and chili peppers. Another must-try dish is palusami, which is steamed taro leaves stuffed with a coconut cream and onion mixture. And of course, you can’t go to Samoa without trying an authentic Samoa dish cooked in an umu, or earth oven.
