Very well written!

I have been to Hawaii many times and have found this to be very helpful. I have learned new things and new places that I want to visit. This book is great for the first timer to Hawaii.

This book was basically a journal of their trip to Hawaii. No offense, but they did the most "touristy" things possible and did not impart anything worth reading. I have been there three times myself and can give you better details, things to do, and better pictures than were included here! Also many typing errors. Don't waste the time or money.

    Hawaii

    After living there three years and having family and friends coming to visit I knew all the great locations to go to and the tourist traps. 25 YEARS later we took a cruise of the islands and took family members to those places that arent your typical spots. Maybe I should write my own book and how the area has changed and grown not necessarily for better. If you really want to experience Aloha spirit then learn the not so typical spots of the islands to enjoy and learn the laid back customs of the islander locals. My oldest was born there 30 years this coming christmas. I am not saying dont visit the local tourist traps, but learn the history and customs can certainly make your Aloha experience enjoyable. After going back 25 years later I was amazed I remembered my way around, but also sadden by the loss of sugar cane fields and pinapple fields as well. Maybe I should write my own experience and have others share in my story of my Hawaiian experience. I love the islands and the people were awesome. Study before you go, you might find some out of the way experiences that will last you a lifetime of memories... Mahalo!
