PACIFIC TRAVEL GUIDE
|Samoa, officially the Independent
State of Samoa, formerly known as Western Samoa, is a country encompassing
the western part of the Samoan Islands in the South Pacific Ocean.
The two main islands of Samoa
are Upolu and one of the biggest islands in Polynesia, Savai'i. The capital
city, Apia, and Faleolo International Airport are situated
on the island of Upolu.
Samoa was admitted to the
United Nations on 15 December 1976. The entire island group, inclusive
of American Samoa, was called “Navigators Islands” by European explorers
before the 20th century because of the Samoans' seafaring skills.
