Apia, the nation's capital, hugs the northern coastline and is home to a quarter of the country's population.
Founded in 1850, the town has grown steadily ever since, though most would agree that it still retains the welcoming charm that the nation's small village communities are famous for.
There are some pretty churches that ring with hymns on Sundays and the city reverberates during the rest of the week with the sounds of some of the country's best nightlife and the bustle of the fish market. There are some good local restaurants to sample here too.
