Can anyone offer some credible advice regarding the following.
The Australian Government website smart traveler advises visitors to Samoa to exercise caution after dark and in remote areas and beaches as there has recently been violent assaults and robberies including sexual assaults against foreigners.
I am interested in visiting Savaii with my wife, teenage son and daughter and trecking through rain forest ,visiting remote beaches etc.
After reading Government advisory it has me worried especially about my wife and daughter.
I know stuff like this happens in Sydney where I live but I am never worried about remote places and being out after dark.
Am I being paranoid or should I be concerned?
Or does this stuff only happen in Apia and not on the outer islands?
