An open secret of American Samoa travel is that it is almost Spartan, filled with outdoor activities and water sports, nature retreats, stunning views and cultural trips to interesting archeological sites.
The American Samoa travel is capable of completely refreshing your mind and body and releasing you from all the troubles that have ever taken place and all daily routine that has burdened your thoughts for a year or more.

Ten thousand and five hundred acres of land on Tutuila is now the National Park of American Samoa. The park was created with the aim to preserve the Paleo-tropical rainforest with the unique flora and fauna habitats, the Indo-Pacific coral reef and traditional Polynesian culture.

It is an intricate labyrinth of over sixty four different varieties of corals, from brownish mushrooms to bluish vases and from tiny peaces to almost sizes of a whale.
The choice of entertainment on American Samoa is limited, though with such an abundance of things to do and see in nature, there would be hardly a spare minute for visiting concert halls and theaters.
