With the same result, we could ask Robert Louis Stevenson or George Westbrook about their Samoa travel, as described their experiences through hundreds of pages. It can only mean that there is so much special about Samoa that a potential traveler should not be in a hurry with the answer until he is on Samoa, the source of inspiration for writers and missioners.
Samoa travel provides wonderful opportunities for exceptional nature and culture experiences. The main islands of the Samoan group are high islands with a great number of volcanic mountains, stretching their peaks high in the air. However, extended areas of rich soil are covered with exotic plants and trees, creating the natural landscape of unusual beauty. Cacao, coconut palms and bananas are growing everywhere, supplying the residents with a rich produce.
The uniqueness of Samoa's wildlife and nature can be roughly described as follows. There are only thirty four species of land birds, fourteen of which are endemic, including the famous tooth-billed pigeon, fruit doves, kingfishers and white-eye. Out of reptile species, one land and four sea snakes species and ten or a dozen kinds of lizards inhabit the islands. Nevertheless, there are some eight hundred species of flowering plants, one third of which are unique to Samoa; two hundred and sixty species of ferns, four hundred species of mosses, two hundred fungi and one hundred and eighty lichens!
With such a variety and uniqueness of flora and fauna, the Samoa travel is the best choice for flower and bird enthusiasts, ecologists and ornithologists, who will gain an unparallel learning experience from this trip.
If you are passionate about the cultural enrichment, the Samoa travel is an excellent idea for that too. The islands are filled with Polynesian culture styles that range from traditional dress codes to kava making ceremonies. You will be pleasantly surprised at hearing the Samoan language. It reminds that of Italian, soft and fluent, but not musical. A distinguished feature of the Samoan language is an abundant usage of idioms that are hard to study.
The last, but not the least, the Samoa travel is a way to get acquainted with some of the most beautiful people of our planet. Their skin color ranges from dark brown to light copper and to some shades of nice olive. They have black straight hair; some have read hair due to the usage of coral lime to stiffen the hair for pretty hair-do. Varieties of "jewelry" are numerous, ranging from flowers to leaves and shells' necklaces and garlands. Women are physically ideal and very graceful. The traditional hospitality and politeness complement to the physical attractiveness of Samoan residents.
Consider some practical information: Samoa hotels are not numerous, but range from almost peasant accommodation with no electricity to quite comfortable accommodation facilities. Aggie's at the Beach is the newest and best Samoa hotel with luxurious rooms, a swimming pool, a restaurant and a bar.
