What to do in Samoa: Where the Day Starts First! Did you know?


Samoa is a fascinating country, full of traditions and rich culture. With a history dating back more than 3,000 years, the Samoa we know today is a land of stunning natural beauty, vivid history and breathtaking traditions.



When it comes to the best places to visit in Samoa, we highlight: Apia, the vibrant capital, the American Samoa National Park with its incredible fauna and flora, the beautiful To Sua Ocean Trench Lagoon, perfect for a relaxing swim, the village of Saleaula, where you can see the ruins left by the 1905 volcano eruption and, finally, the beautiful Lalomanu Beach, voted one of the most beautiful in the world.


The local currency is the Samoan Tala and the official language is Samoan, but English is also widely spoken. Unfortunately, we Brazilians need a visa to visit Samoa.

As for the socioeconomic and political situation of Samoa, it is a mixed constitutional monarchy, with the head of state, since independence in 1962, being a member of the Malietoa family. The economy relies heavily on agriculture, fishing, tourism and remittances from Samoans living abroad.

Regarding the cost of a trip to Samoa, we can say that it is a relatively affordable destination. Of course, it all depends on your travel style and the activities you choose to do.



But let's return to our curiosity in the title. In 2011, Samoa decided to change hemispheres, skipping December 30th altogether, thus becoming one of the first places in the world to welcome the new day.
