Experience the culinary arts of Samoa by trying out the food enjoyed here. People in this part of the world often include crayfish and taro in their kitchens. Of course no trip to Samoa would be finished without trying taro root seasoned and baked in oven or oka l’a (marinated raw fish). Request cooked green bananas in coconut cream at the conclusion of your main dishes. This is a popular choice for locals and tourists.
Before you escape on your special holiday, do as savvy travelers do and take the time to learn some important words in Samoan. A good example of such a phrase is "Ete ta fia siva?" (Would you like to dance?). You'll find that learning "O fea e te sau ai?", which translates to "Where are you from?", can make all the difference.
At the end of your stay in Faleolo, no doubt you'll bid this region a teary "Tōfā soifua" But be comforted by the fact that you'll be leaving with once-in-a-lifetime memories that you'll have for years to come.
