Depends what YOU like... but the favourtite has to be the freshly picked mangos!. my favorite is raw mango dipped in soy sauce and sugar.
eat!!! Depending on what your interests are, Samoa offers loads of things to do. If you love the outdoors, a tour around the islands are a treat! You get to learn about the… culture and experience the Samoan way of life up front. There's also outdoor sports like surfing, scuba diving, bike riding, and hiking (altough its best to have a guide with you for the 2 last ones). Theres a pretty good night life aswell in Apia (the capital). And yes, of course, EATING! .We Samoans love our food! There are loads of restaurants in Samoa that offer a range of cuisines (Chinese, Japanese, Samoan...theres even a McDonalds in Apia).
By plane, but if you're travelling from neighbouring islands, American Samoa, Tokelau etc, there's always the option to travel by boat. Alot of cruise ships stop in Samoa also…, if you're that way inclined.
I dont know if Samoa Joe was actually born in Samoa, but I do know that he is of Samoan descent. He wasn't born in samoa.
No. Samoa is an independent nation while American Samoa is an American overseas territory. Germans and American feuded over Samoa. The territory was eventually split into t…wo: Western (or German) Samoa and Eastern (or American) Samoa. Western Samoa eventually became independent while Eastern Samoa still remains an American territory.
No they are 2 different countries. American Samoa is an American territory. Samoa is an independent nation.
you need a Samoan citizen to sponser you. then if you want to stay 12 months plus you'll need a police report from the current country you live in and a medical report.
It is situated in the southern Pacific Ocean - NNE of Tonga, ENE of Fiji, west of Cook Islands and even further west of Tahiti/French Polynesia. Being south of some other, les…ser known islands, you might say it is almost in the middle of the South Pacific.

Samoa used to be known as Western Samoa when it was owned by Germany until 1962 when it became its own independent nation.
it is called western Samoa because Samoa is divided into two parts, American Samoa and western Samoa. After colonialism came to Samoa, America took control of Eastern Samoa… which adapted the name "American Samoa". While Germany (and later NZ) took control of Western Samoa, who then took on the name "Western Samoa". No called SAMOA. The nation dropped the "western" in 1997.
I think it's about 12,000 kilometres, so about 14 hours flying time this is wrong. I used to live in Vailoa (American Samoa) and on clear days I can see Samoa (western Samo…a) from American Samoa. It's about 100 miles. The airplane trip takes about 30 minutes on a twin engine Cessna.
It was a German protectorate from 1900 to 1914, consisting of the islands of Upolu, Savai'i, Apolima and Manono. After 1920, the League of Nations gave it to England. After 19…46, New Zealand administered it until independence in 1962. It is now part of Independent Samoa
