Tourist Feedback on 18th Teuila Festival 2009

Talofa Lava


We would like to thank all involved for the wonderful Teuila Festival 2009.


My husband and I, our 2 boys (6 and 9 years), and 2 friends have recently returned from an unforgettable 3 week holiday in Samoa.

While we enjoyed all our activities in Samoa, a highlight of our trip was the Teuila Festival.

We experienced as much as we could: wood carving, tattooing, traditional cooking demonstrations, fautasi races, traditional singing and dancing, the variety nights (love that dance group 685!), knife dancing, rugby parade, Miss Samoa float and of course, the Miss Samoa pageant.

We loved it all!


We were overwhelmed by the friendliness and humour of the Samoans we met.

In particular, we would like to thank the festival staff, who so often led us to good seats so that we could fully appreciate the shows.


We are already saving so we can return to Samoa as soon as we can!


Kind regards

Annette, Tim, Matthew and David Rannard
