The Tourism sector in Samoa is quietly growing, but with more interest being shown by major countries such as the USA, there is hope for our tiny nation for exposure as an ideal tourist destination. In the 21st century, Samoa is a tad behind some of our other neighboring Island Nations, such as Fiji, Cook Islands and the friendly Isle - Tonga. Hopefully with the Samoan Media expanding to New Zealand, and I hope Australia, through advertising and marketing, Samoa will gain this exposure. Samoa is a beautiful island which is still quite 'pure' and that is one of the appealing features.
