We are looking at 8 days in Samoa at the end of October. This is getting towards the rainy season. Will rain stop us having fun?
I’ve checked the websites for Samoa’s climate (October is starting to get rainy), but what’s it like when you are there? i.e. is it UK rain (only 4mm a day, but low level mist, permanent grey skies and a general feeling of foreboding) or is it NZ rain (numbers look twice as big, but it’s over in 30 min then you have sun sun sun)?
Thanks for your thoughts…
Has anybody been in September or October in Samoa, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Kiribati or Nauru and knows when which month will be better? Which month are more sunny days?
It's very important to know asap.
Thanks so much for any advice;)
I will be only 5 days in Samoa (Apia) at the end of June before heading to Australia. It's quite a short stay but I decided I should go anyway :)
My question is, what would be the essential things to do there, since I won't have much time? Would it be worth going to another island for example?
P.S.: any backpackers out there who will be around at that time? would be cool to meet some people while there :)
i have read several news about how to reach tokelau
all my news are quite old indeed,
it seems that the best way is via samoa by boat
do u know how long it takes, how much does it cost and how oftne there is this boat?
moreover are there any hotel in tokelau and is it safe?
thanks for your help
we hope to visit it one day!
I lived in Apia in 1979-1981 and am visiting again for three days in January 2016. I knew a lady there who I would like to meet up with, Vanessa Panina (I think that was her surname) and I think she lived in Pailima? On the Robert Louis Stevenson road. Anyone know her?
From what I have read so far about cycling in Samoa, it is very do-able and a great way to see the Island. We are keen to come over during the NZ winter this year, and are experienced cycle tourers with our own gear. However, it seems that the best/easiest option of staying in Fale's includes breakfast and dinner. We are both strict vegetarians with some other dietary requirement stuff and as such prefer to self cater. Would this be an option at some Fale accommodation? If we brought our…
As flying to the Cook Islands (probably also taking in Samoa and Niue), all the way from Europe, is very expensive, I was wondering if there is a cheaper way getting there.. perhaps by cargo boats, alternating with land travel etc... Any ideas? Is there anyone on here who has done it that way or maybe heard that someone managed to do it?
Would appreciate any feedback!
Cheers and happy travels!
we are planning a trip to Samoa early April.
The plan so far is to hire a car from Apia (probably spend a day in Apia), drive to Sinalei Reef Resort and spend three nights, then make our away across to Suvai'i to Le Lagota Resort for a another three nights. Siteseeing along the way. We have about a week in total.
We hope to get some great diving and a bit of exploring done so grateful for any suggestions of must dos', warnings of things that may go wrong so we can avoid them, do…
I've been lightly planning my summer vacation and I'm 90% sure on Samoa. I've been playing around with booking.com checking hotel prices but they're all listed in Canadian dollars.
I used a currency converter and roughly $500 equals 1000 tala. I'm just wondering what a tala would buy you. Like $5 will get you a beer in a pub in Canada, or a hotel is $150.
Anyone know? My travel books are ordered but I'm impatient lol. Thanks!
