Shore Excursion Pago Pago  (1 Answer)

We will be stopping in Pago Pago for 1 day on a cruise and was looking for some suggestions of what we could see and/or do? We usually prefer to organise ourselves rather than do ship's excursions. Any suggestions most appreciated.

Pago Pago private tours

I hope someone can help? We are four ladies, one with limited mobility who can't climb onto high step transport and we wish to take an island tour tomorrow 22/8/14. Are there any private cars or taxis available for a 4 or 5 hour tour and if so what is a reasonable cost. Thanks in anticipation of any help.

Dress in American Samoa  (2 Answers)

My husband and I are traveling to Pago Pago for work. I've been told that I should wear skirts that go below the knee as women in American Samoa do not show the knee. Additionally I'm told that slacks are okay, long shorts below the knee okay and jeans are a definite no. Does anyone know if this is true or have any other information.

Now that I am going, what do I do?  (1 Answer)

I will be arriving in Pago Pago three weeks from tonight and have no idea what to do once I get there. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I do not even know where I will be spending that first night. I plan to spend a few days in (Western or Independent) Samoa but my primary reason for going is that, other than Puerto Rico, American Samoa is about the only part of America which I have not visited.
Thanks again for any help which anyone is willing to offer.

Trip planning  (4 Answers)

American Samoa is now at the top of my list of places to visit. I am aware that it is remote and expensive and less commercially developed (I may just stay there to get away from it all.) but I want to go. While I am in the area, I would, however, love to visit some other nearby lands. So far, my research indicates that (Independent or Western ) Samoa is the only other reasonable place unless you own your own boat or airplane, and I do not. I would appreciate any suggestions which anyone can offer as to other accessible lands AND as to what a person who enjoys beaches but is not an avid swimmer should be certain to do when visiting any of the Samoan islands. I will be traveling from the USA. Has anyone had any experience flying to either Pago Pago or Apia and then returning from the other. It seems that this would save one eight hour ferry ride.

Other destinations of convenience  (13 Answers)

I hope to visit American Samoa during 2012. In doing my research, I am developing the opinion that it is next to impossible to get there. This being the case, I would like to visit other islands/nations relatively nearby. Western Samoa is obviously one such place. Any other destination suggestions which others are willing to share with me would be greatly appreciated.
