So here is the question. Planning a trip to Hawaii?
Knowing the insider tips will make it less cumbersome, it can be an expensive trip.
Hawaii is a series of tropical islands with much to offer the curious or active tourist. Oahu Island is a firm favourite with travelers. It is easily navigated by using a rental vehicle or if you prefer the local buses. You will take a boat across the harbour and descend onto a sort of floating barge where time will stand still as you become aware that the bodies of hundreds of unfortunate sailors still lie beneath your feet.
Amongst the most recommended and interesting stops along the way is the Punchbowl/National Cemetery on Puowaina Drive.
It a trip to Hawaii ain’t complete without it, the boat trip will cost a fair bit.
Another stop that attracts millions of visitors from all corners of the planet is Oahu’s historical Pearl Harbor’s USS Arizona Memorial. There is lots of glorious tropical scenery to savour.
It is only a short walk to the cemetery. You see, you’d better also take time to take the guided tour to learn about the Arizona’s final moments. It is so packed with exciting things to see that you could build your whole vacation around it. Now let me tell you something. Amidst the mainstays is the Waimea Canyon Lookout, the Pacific’s Grand Canyon.
Whether as a short day trip hop over from the other islands or as the location for that of your trip, Kauai Island is another recommended stop.
It has a ’10mile’ stretch of beauty that shouldn’t be missed.
The Salt Pond County Beach Park boasts Kauai’s and Hawaii’s only existing, ancient, rock salt ponds. The Russian fort near Hanalei Bay is a historical stop. Its beaches seemingly go on forever, lavished in plenty of world’s most beautiful, tropical scenery. If, however, you go to Hawaii to relax on warm sandy beaches, you are intending to the right place.
