      I shall be in New Zealand for a few weeks in February and was thinking of possibly flying to Samoa from Auckland.

      I have just started some research on what one can enjoy in the country and would be grateful for any information that would influence my choice of Samoa as compared to Vanuatu or New Caledonia.

      me and my fiancee are going to Samoa in June for a week and have found a nice, budget place called FaoFao Beach Fales & Hotel. Has anyone been there? The reason for me asking is to find out if there are any places to dine/drink there - seems to be a small village on south-west Upolu - except the hotel? Any shops, restaurants, bars etc. over there? What prices can we expect to pay e.g. lunch or dinner or a beer?

      If anyone has any info about this, please post it here or write to me at

      Thanks all and maan,are we looking forward to get there :) Truely a dream come true!

    • I will be in Samoa for 3 weeks

      Independant State of Samoa Feb 21, 2007 at 9:40 AM

      In August/September. 10 days on each island using public transport, is this rushing around? The islands seem to have lots to offer but is there enough for 3 weeks?
      p.s. do they stone "regular" tourists or is it just the tourists who go in cars and seem to snub locals by not interacting?

    • Hotel Reservations Required?

      Independant State of Samoa Feb 2, 2007 at 12:06 PM

      I am planning on going to Samoa at the end of May, beginning of June. Do I need to make hotel reservations before arriving? I like to keep my schedule flexible in case there is a part of Samoa where I would like to spend a couple of extra days or a part that I would like to leave a day earlier than I originally had planned. Do hotels fill up quickly during that time of year?

    • Arriving in Samoa.

      Independant State of Samoa Mar 21, 2006 at 4:58 AM

      My boyfriend and I will be arriving at the international airport in Upolu, Samoa about 2am in the morning, we are then travelling over to Savaii on the morning ferry. Do you think it's best to just stay in the airport until the first ferry of the day which is at 8am or to try and find somewhere to stay for a few hours? What's the airport like, is it the kind of place you could kill 5 or so hours at? If you think finding a place to stay is the best option do you know of anywhere near the airport that's cheap?

    • Why Amaile??

      Amaile Jul 21, 2005 at 7:03 PM

      Why would I go to Amaile? I don't know...I mean who is going two thirds of the way to New Zeiland just to sit around, eat funky food and such?

      You get to Amaile in one of three ways. One, your born here..simple enough. Two, you join the peace they still exist? And three, the funny one, you pass out drunk on the deck of a ship to depart in a week that "accidentally" departs that afternoon. I know it was early, but that should make it safer right?

      Well anyway, after begging for my life I get a job on the ship. Cleaning the ship doesn't seem like a tough thing to do. Wrong! I was actually better off falling in during that horrible storm.

      Anyhow, I end up in sexy Samoa.

      Sexy...well sexy like a giant dude in a sarong trying to touch "the area covered by my bathing suit." Suffice to say, this would be a gay polyneasian fetishists paradise.

      No wonder I have neber met one before, they live here!

      Oh, my computer time is up. Wish me luck, you have no idea 'bout the food.
