Samoa Travel Guide
This small South Pacific country (made up of 10 islands) packs plenty of visual drama with its seriously gorgeous beaches and awesome waterfalls and natural-rock pools. The bulk of the Samoa's 180,000 residents live on Upolu, which contains the capital Apia, a sleepy South Seas kind of town. Samoans still adhere to a traditional lifestyle where both family and religion play important roles and where rugby is a consuming passion.
