Apia, Western Samoa-port

Samoa is made up of nine islands about 1700 miles north east of New Zealand. The islands were originally settled about 1000 BC by a thriving Polynesian culture. In Apia, explore the colorful Maketi Fou (food market) on Fugalei Street, and the flea market – the perfect souvenir haunt where you’ll find everything from clubs and kava bowls to Samoan sarongs, baskets, and jewelry. Discover alluring blue lagoons, serene tropical beaches, cascading waterfalls, and lush rainforests. On Mount Vaea lies the beautifully restored home of author Robert Louis Stevenson. Tempt your taste buds with ocean-fresh fish wrapped in banana leaves and cooked in an umu , an earth oven of hot stones.

Embrace Samoa's visual splendor during this picturesque, full-day sightseeing tour of East Upolu.

Depart the pier for the scenic drive past the lush green forests, waterfalls, plantations and traditional Samoan villages along the northeast coast of Upolu. En route, a photo stop will be made to take in the picturesque beauty of Falefa Falls. At Le Mafa Pass, located 1,700 feet above sea level, you will marvel at the breathtaking views of the eastern and southern shores of Upolu.

A barbecue lunch will be served upon arrival at Tafatafa Beach, with cultural entertainment provided by the renowned Aggie Grey Dance Troupe. After lunch, you will have an opportunity to go swimming and snorkeling (bring your own gear).

Next, you will rejoin your coach and take in splendid views of the rainforest, plantations and mountains as you drive along Upolu's southwest coast. A photo stop will be made at the Sopo'aga Falls, which cascade into an old volcanic crater. A visit will then be made to the Sopo'aga Botanical Garden. Here, you will find a variety of ethnic plants, learn about their medicinal qualities and view a cooking demonstration using a ground oven, or umu. Following your visit, you will rejoin your coach for the return drive to the pier.

Wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes, and bring sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and sunglasses from the ship.
