The Samoan capital of Apia serves as the first port of call for most visitors, and it plays home to a number of historic sites, a laid-back seaside promenade, and a range of hotels and restaurants keeping tourists entertained. Though certainly not overflowing with can't-miss attractions, Apia features colonial-era architecture and aging buildings that lend a sort of shabby charm to the city, and its busy streets are full of character and plenty of smiling faces. Spend part of your Apia holiday exploring the city's markets, noisy agglomerations of round-the-clock stalls, stands, and shops hawking everything from handmade coconut-shell jewelry and elegant sarongs, to knockoff T-shirts and farm-fresh fruits. When using our Samoa attractions planner to make an itinerary online, Apia holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Apia

Apia's many lodging options include everything from budget hotels and family-run guesthouses, to glitzy resorts and luxury seaside lodges. The area surrounding the city harbor and the neighborhood of Togafuafua offer a good selection of rooms, many of which lie within easy walking distance of museums, city markets, and the central district. Consider heading for the Milinuu Peninsula if you're interested in upscale hotels, which provide quick access to nightlife and dining. For a more economical option, try staying a little farther inland, in areas offering lower rates than their oceanfront counterparts.
