Dances:

Yes, some of the popular dance forms have been originated at Samoa. Heard of Slap dance? The male slaps their bodies which are taken from the act of killing mosquitoes. Taualuga is another dance form wherein a group of men dances around a woman, wooing her and admiring her beauty. The most common dance performed by males at Samoa is Sasa.

Surfing:

A lot of beaches are found at Samoa and most of them allow surfing. Most of the professionals and surfing lovers can be seen practising in the beaches. However, the beginners can also attempt surfing. There are trainers and proper safety measures to assist the amateurs’.

Fale: 

If you haven’t stayed in a fale, it is high time you plan one. A fale is a kind of a hut with no walls and are supported by the thatched roofs. It is set on the beach side to give the guests an actual feel of nature.

Falls:

Samoa has a hot and humid climate. The falls are the best ways to beat the heat. Do take a shower at Afu Afu falls.

Churches:

The brightly colour churches are an eye grasper. The architect is well planned and constructed such that they are just not a place of religion, but also a tourist attraction. Do visit the churches in Samoa irrespective of your religion. There is a curfew set in the evening around 6.00 pm wherein visitors are prevented from driving as it is the prayer time.

Seafood:
