This warm and unrestrained island country, the residents cover their bodies with leaves and "naked" for beauty
Tropical rainforest island nation of Samoa
The Independent State of Samoa, referred to as Samoa, is an independent island country on an archipelago in the southern Pacific Ocean, consisting of two large islands and eight small islands in Lupo Microwave and Rosawai, most of which are covered by tropical rainforest climate jungle, and the climate is extremely pleasant all year round, with 197,000 people scattered on the islands of Samoa.
As the center of the Polynesian archipelago, Samoa has been an independent kingdom since 1250, and has been invaded by Germany, the United States and Britain many times over the past few hundred years. It was not until 1962, when Samoa declared its independence, that it became a member of the Commonwealth State, and in 1997, Samoa became independent as the Independent State of Samoa.
Because it is a very unique island country, Samoa's economy has been dominated by coconuts, cocoa and other agricultural products for many years, with small light industry and agricultural product processing industry, but most of the time it is still dominated by tourism, as the most important economic pillar, Samoa's tourism has accounted for nearly 90% of GDP all year round.
In addition to the beautiful scenery of the island country, what makes Samoa famous all over the world is the unique culture of this island country. Since the climate on the island has been typical of tropical rainforest for many years, this has also led to the warm and unrestrained style of the island's inhabitants who have liked to walk with less clothing for many years, and prefer to show their skin and body without thinking. It has long been customary among the islanders.
The inhabitants are simple and unrestrained, with "nakedness" for their beauty
In the original perception of Samoans, they believe that the body comes from the gifts of God and nature, parents, so with their own physical beauty, they do not think that there will be shame in large-scale exposure; On the other hand, it is due to the lack of cloth on the island, so most of the time, residents will even use leaves to cover their private parts, and the rest will wear nothing.
Samoa has limited raw materials, so there is a typical custom of Samoan life, that is, most of the Samoan houses are made of local materials, using coconut trees and dried branches that can be obtained at hand.
In the eyes of tourists who land on the island, this is one after another open thatched pavilion, without any boundaries, walls and privacy, and Samoans have advocated living in such open thatched huts for many years, in today's era, it can be regarded as another sense of "night without closing".
Samoan taboo: You cannot eat food while walking
But for tourists, the only taboo thing to do when visiting Samoa is to remember that you can't eat food while walking on the island, perhaps this behavior is often seen in countries around the world, and in many food streets, tourists get snacks and sit down or eat them with their hands.
But in the Samoan faith, "eating" is the most important thing in the day, Samoan families in each daily meal, but also to do a very devout prayer, thankful for the food given by the gods, and then can eat formally, so eat food while walking, in the eyes of Samoans, this is a great disrespect for food, the natural environment and the gods.
