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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Lalomanu Beach (in Lalomanu) and To Sua Ocean Trench (in Lotofaga). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Immaculate Conception of Mary Cathedral, contemplate the waterfront views at Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and admire the sheer force of Sopoaga Falls.

To see where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Apia sightseeing planner.

Sydney, Australia to Apia is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3 hours traveling from Sydney to Apia. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) to allow time to travel to Savai'i.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 4th (Sat): Head underground at Aopo Lava Tubes and then make a trip to Swimming with Turtles.

Plan my Savai'i trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by combination of car and ferry from Apia to Savai'i takes 2.5 hours. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
