Exploring the beauty of Samoa

Allison Dehghan’s trip to Samoa serves two good purposes. 

While she is here to be a bridesmaid at her friend’s wedding, she is also able to explore the natural wonders of Samoa. 

She is from Sydney, Australia. 

Allison says it was a perfect escape to witness another part of the world and the best part of it all was bringing her nine-year-old daughter, Leighton, with her.  

“This is our first time here in Samoa and it is amazing. We have been everywhere. My friend’s family took us around Samoa for sightseeing,” she shared with the Dear Tourist team. 

“We have been to the To Sua Ocean Trench, the Piula Cave Pool and the Papaseea Sliding Rocks.”

“So they have this random waterfall on the side of the road and we also went there for a swim. It was really good. We barely had time to stay in the hotel.”

Samoa is so far their best holiday destination.

“We have been to Fiji and over there is busy. The resort staff members are always busy. Coming here I was able to experience that it is more laid back and you can feel the presence of a stronger culture.”

“That is within my own opinion and even though Samoa and Fiji are both in the Pacific, they are far different from each other.” 

“Even though the weather is hot but we have had a good time here and enjoyed every bit of it,” she adds.

When asked about the highlight of their trip, Leighton enthusiastically replied: “The highlight would be the Piula Cave Pool when the other girls placed flowers in the pool to take a photo.”

There is nothing more relaxing than seeing your child happy and Allison knows it well.

She adds they hope to return for another island experience.

“The staff members of the hotel have been really attentive and the people are so friendly here. We feel very welcomed and just have nothing to worry about is good.”
