Right downtown, this set of traditional Samoan dwellings have locals doing tattoos the original way (no electrical equipment - just the way it has been done for hundreds of years), traditional dancing, local food, handcrafts... Quite interesting. If you are in town, drop buy.

Once the tour began, we were fortunate enough to see an actual...More
