I visited American Samoa as part of a Transpacific Cruise in late 2011. It was the first port of call that the ship visited after five days at sea from Hawaii.
About American Samoa
American Samoa is an unincorporated and unorganised territory of The United States of America. Located around 4,100 kilometres east of Australia the small island nation is made up of five islands and two coral atolls.
America Samoa has a land area of around 199 square kilometres with a population of around 55,500 people from the 2010 census. The primary employment on the islands is split three ways between government, tuna canning and other private enterprises.
Places To Visit
American Samoa offers a number of different natural areas to explore. However, when I visited as part of a Transpacific Cruise I opted for a tour with the cruise line. If you are visiting with a cruise ship a tour would be the most effective use of your time.
