Truly the guides that show you what others only tell you, this book features stunning 3D and cutaway views of museums, cathedrals, and other must-see sights; detailed street maps; a handy phrase section; advice on the best places to eat, drink, shop, sleep, and be entertained; and a Survival Guide to help the traveler sort out essential information such as currency, transportation, and communications. As world traveler and TV personality Michael Palin says, "the Eyewitness Travel Guides are irresistibly seductive.... They also deliver where it matters most -- uncluttered and accurate information." Before you can say aloha, you'll feel like you've arrived in the islands with DK's Eyewitness Travel Guide: Hawaii. With more than 400 breathtaking full-color photographs, this terrific guide takes you to all Hawaii's sights in chapters covering each island, as well as additional chapters highlighting Honolulu and Waikiki. Accurate street-by-street maps direct you around Honolulu while 3-D aerial views take you such key attractions as the Bishop Museum, housing the world's finest collection of Polynesian artifacts and culture. A special feature of this section covers the museum's floor plans, complemented by photos of its extensive collection; another showcases the glamorous Waikiki beach front. Beyond Honolulu, the guide provides information about each of the islands including an illustrated aerial view of each island, complete with major roadways and sightseeing attractions. In the Oahu chapter, a colorful map directs to all the best beaches, while the Molokai and Lanai chapter includes a driving tour of East Molokai with a route along the coastal highway and photos of recommendedsightseeing stops. The Maui chapter contains a two-page photographic layout spotlighting Haleakala National Park, as well as another tour taking you through the Upcountry and into the mountains. Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Park is the subject of a special feature in the Hawaii Island chapter, which includes a recreation of the former village and vibrant photographs of the area's ancient monuments. From Hawaii's remarkable history to its spectacular volcanoes, from surfing and learning the hula to finding the most beautiful and secluded beaches, experience all the wonders of Hawaii in this enlightening and enjoyable travel guide from DK.

Densely packed guide with hundreds of color plates (many only postage stamp size). To cover the Islands in 200 pages allows hitting only the high points (but it hits very many of these). Features the usual great maps and cutaway drawings that contribute to the compelling DK look. Lacks a bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
