Pago Pago

Pago Pago is the capital town of American Samoa. It is actually a village area that is often mistaken to be a city (as in a capital or port city) of this south Pacific territory of the United States of America.

Pago Pago is one of the several villages in the Urban agglomeration of Pago Pago along the shore of Pago Pago harbor located at the very eastern part (inside) of the embayment. The area includes a number of villages, among them Fagatogo, the legislative and judicial area, and Utulei, the executive area .

==== PAGO PAGO – ATTRACTION

Pago Pago is a mixture of colorful semi-urban communities, a small town, tuna canneries (which provide employment for a third of the population of Tutuila) and a harbor surrounded by dramatic cliffs, which plunge almost straight into the sea. A climb to the summit of Mt. Alava provides a magnificent bird’s-eye view of the harbor and town.
