I just booked flights to Apia.
While looking for accommodation i found a forum that said that there are several problems that ruined the authors' holidays:
1. Packs of aggressive dogs at night
2. Theft (even by hotel managers)
3. Locals throwing stones at them
4. Generally very unfriendly, racist treatment throughout both islands.
another thing that was mentioned is medical services reusing needles (?!!)
Has anyone else experienced this sort of thing?
I'm taking a friend and since the holiday was my suggestion I'm going to feel so bad if those things happen to us.
I've travelled around Africa and Asia and realise that things like theft do happen, but it was pretty surprising to see that hotel keepers and guesthouse hosts were often the culprits.
