South Pacific - Samoa (PDF Chapter)
This is the Samoa chapter from Lonely Planet’s South Pacific guidebook.
Serene but spirited, wild yet well-manicured, hushed but birthed by volcanic explosions; stunning Samoa is a paradisaical paradox. This is a humble place, devoid of mega-resorts and flashy attractions, but with welcomes as warm as the island sun.
