Airport

The main entry point into Samoa is Faleolo International Airport, located 40 km from Apia, on the island of Upolu. Airport shuttles are provided to the major hotels and can be booked prior to arrival or organised when you arrive after clearing customs. Taxis are also available, furthermore, if your flight is arriving during the day, then you can catch a local bus into Apia from the main gate of the airport. There are no set timetables, unfortunately, but the departures from both the city and the airport are usually synchronised with the flights!

Bus

Bus

Have fun exploring Samoa inexpensively by local bus! Buses come in a variety of colour schemes but you will notice that all the seating is wooden. If the bus is full when you board locals will sit on a person’s lap and if it’s heading into either Apia or Salelologa, the locals will often be carrying their produce to the markets. The are no bus stops around the islands, so just wave down a bus if you want to get on, and when you want to get off simply pull the cord to ring the buzzer. You pay your fare as you leave the bus.
