    • Samoa – Paradise on the South Pacific
      Located in the south of the Pacific and to the west of Samoa Islands, Samoa is composed of two principal islands, namely Savaii and Upolu, as well as seven small islands. Samoa, featuring unique characteristics, beautiful scenery and leisurely life, is a well-known tourism destination. Local people in Samoa enjoy their leisurely life, and thus the industry and agriculture there witness very slow development. If you ramble there, what you feel is relaxed, comfortable and interesting. Why not take your UnionPay card (card number starting with 62) to appreciate the ancient and unique charm of the “Paradise on the South Pacific”, a metaphor written by Steven.

      ATM commission fee consists of two parts:
      (1)Service fee charged by the issuer: please consult the issuer for details.
      (2)Service fee charged by the ATM acquirer in Samoa: some ATMs will charge commission fee, which is charged by the local banks in Samoa and which has nothing to do with UnionPay or the issuer.
