It includes you in their world, in their culture, in their way of life, rich with old traditions and yet in time with the modern world. The majority of Samoans are full blooded Polynesians who, guided only by the stars, sailed and populated the Pacific over 2,000 years ago. Samoa is regarded as the " Cradle of Polynesia". American Samoa boasts six inhabited islands and Western Samoa four;the islands enjoy an even, tropical climate and are quite diverse. Deep harbors, rivers, waterfalls, lush vegetation and stark lava flows give way to incredible lagoons and white sand beaches.
