I am looking to plan a trip to Samoa in september/october 09. and need some advice. Im 18, can't wait to travel, and am more than likely going alone. I'm from australia and have booked flights to auckland, NZ from 16 sept - 10 oct and want to fly to samoa from auckland for approx a week somewhere in that time frame, and have looked at flights that fly in to apia. (not sure how many airports are in samoa?)
I'd like to know roughly in AUD the average cost i'd expect to pay for accomodation etc. also what kind of costs im looking at for tours, food, etc. How much is it to cross the island? I'm sort of wanting to stay at a backpackers or something to meet other fellow travellers as i'll be alone.
I am in my second and final year of studying photography and want to do A LOT of shooting whilst im over there. So where are the best scenic places?
Is it best to stay in one place, and do day trips or move around?
What is the night life like? is there any/many nightclubs & bars?
Thanks in advance for any help !
