History

Samoa is located in the Pacific Ocean and is quite close to New Zealand. It used to be a part of New Zealand before it was made a separate, independent island. The island is largely dominated by the Polynesian culture which can be traced back to the early settlers of Samoa, who then dispersed to Hawaii, New Zealand and Tahiti. Samoa has a lot of historical and archeological aspects to it. The god Tagaloa is thought to have been looking after the land and is said to be responsible for its existence. The most developed island at Samoa is that of Upolu, which is also home to some of the most important administrative activities of the island with Apia located on it as well as with the Faleolo International Airport built there. Samoa also has many historical stories related to it such as that of the French navigator, Louis de Bougainville. He was the one who labeled Samoa as the ‘navigator islands’ because according to him the boats that were observed near the islands gave him some good navigational insight. So, if not anything else, one thing is guaranteed about your Samoa vacations: You will have lots of stories to hear from the people of Samoa and can then narrate them to your friends and family!
