Manase is situated 50 miles (80 kilometers) northwest of Apia, the national capital.
Consider using Manase as a launch pad for further adventures. Samoa is blessed with plenty of interesting attractions. Tuasivi and Lolomalava are just two of the many other places worth checking out while you're in Samoa.
There are numerous ways to experience the outdoors in and around Manase. Hiking and mountain climbing are just two ways active visitors can get their kicks.
Take your tastebuds for a tour through the flavors and aromas of Samoa. Regular ingredients in Samoa are crayfish and taro. Do as the locals do and order taro root seasoned and baked in oven or oka l’a (marinated raw fish). Cooked green bananas in coconut cream, a great way to wrap up your meal.
Taking the time to practice a few key phrases in the local language often separates the real travelers from the mere tourists. Coming to grips with some basic words, such as "Ete ta fia siva?", which translates to "Would you like to dance?", will be sure to make your stay more pleasant. "O fea e te sau ai?" means "Where are you from?"
When it's time to leave this special part of the world, say a fond Tōfā soifua (farewell) to the people you've enjoyed getting to know and the locations you've been.
