Capital city and Major Centers
Samoa (previously known as Western Samoa) is a Polynesian country formed of two large volcanic islands (Upolu and Savai'i) totaling 2935km˛. The highest point is Mount Silisili (1858m) on Savai'i.
Capital & Major Centres - Although Savaii is the largest island of the Samoan archipelago, the capital, Apia, is on the more populated island of Upolu, which is also the seat of government and centre of commerce. Savaii is considerably less developed than Upolu, dotted with secluded beaches and crowned in the centre by the 1,858 metre Mt Silisili.
