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.

Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, take in the dramatic scenery at Papaseea Sliding Rock, Head underground at Piula Cave Pool, and get engrossed in the history at Robert Louis Stevenson Museum.
