Apia, Upolu

— 6 nights
The Samoan capital of Apia serves as the first port of call for most visitors, and it plays home to a number of historic sites, a laid-back seaside promenade, and a range of hotels and restaurants keeping tourists entertained.
Escape the urban bustle at Pure Ocean Dive & Water sports and To Sua Ocean Trench. Get a sense of the local culture at Robert Louis Stevenson Museum and Baha'i House of Worship, Tiapapata, Samoa. Venture out of the city with trips to Lalomanu Beach (in Lalomanu) and Giant Clam Sanctuary (in Savaia). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Immaculate Conception of Mary Cathedral, admire the sheer force of Togitogiga Waterfall, Head underground at Piula Cave Pool, and get engrossed in the history at Samoa Culture Centre.

To find photos, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Apia travel planner.

Chicago, USA to Apia is an approximately 27-hour flight. You'll lose 19 hours traveling from Chicago to Apia due to the time zone difference. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Savai'i.

Enchanting Samoa and its people boast a legendarily laid-back approach to life, and clocks and set times are merely a formality here. The society remains a proud one, deeply connected to a set of millennia-old traditions known as "Fa'a Samoa"--the Samoan Way. Spread out over two main islands and several smaller landmasses, Samoa is a land of incredible contrasts and natural beauty, home to rocky volcanic mountains and expansive beaches, rugged cliffs and lush rainforests. Visitors on holiday in Samoa can easily spend their time exploring the country's exotic interior and untamed coastal reaches, which offer plenty of wildlife and fantastic landscapes. Alternatively, they can just as readily kick back in sleepy seaside villages, indulging in a full-service resort, or splash around in lagoons and at beaches that hold their place among the world's best.
