Introduction : HAWAII


In the Northern Hemisphere of the Pacific Ocean are 8 islands: Hawaii, Maui, Oahu, Kahoolawe, Lanai, Molokai, Kauai, and Niihau. These group islands are known as the 50th state, Hawaii, and is the closest landmass to the equator.


Although Hawaii was believed to be discovered by Polynesians from the Marquesas Islands in 400 C.E., it was officially settled by Captain James Cook in 1778. He named the group islands, the “Sandwich Islands” after the Earl of Sandwich. When he first arrived on the island of Kauai, there was a celebration held for him by the native islanders that may have suspected him to be one of their gods. Unfortunately, in which he was killed at Kealakekua Bay, located on the Big Island as he was charged with stealing. A major world event that was initiated because of an incident in Oahu, Hawaii was World War II. On September 7, 1941, Japan bombed and attacked Pearl Harbor-which was the United States’ important and strategic military power. After 63 years of being a territory, Hawaii became the 50th state as Queen Liliuokalani was an acquaintance of President Grover Cleaveland.


Hawaii is known to have very consistent and warm weather all year round. There are only 2 seasons in Hawaii: Summer and Winter. Summer starts from May to October and Winter lasts from November to April. The average temperatures for these seasons roam around 78ºF -85ºF and drop around 10º in the nighttime. The peak season to visit would be during Summer as there isn’t much rainfall and there is plenty of warm sunshine to enjoy. The weather is not drastically different in Winter. However, traveling at any time between June and September is known as hurricane season. There are stronger trade winds and rainfall that come from the high-pressure zones in the North Pacific, but you can always find some sun somewhere around the coast. Overall, Hawaii always has predictable tropical weather that makes it available to visit at any time of the year.


People from all around the world visit Hawaii. The United States, Japan, and Canada are the top three major places where tourists come from to visit. There are many reasons to visit Hawaii. Some want to get away from their ordinary lives and experience the beautiful beaches and tropical scenery known to many as paradise. Others visit because of the welcoming aloha spirit and diverse cultures that exist in one place. There are so many categories of activities besides going to the beach. Hawaii is known for its popular activities that include hiking to beautiful waterfalls like Waimea Valley, attending a Chief’s Luau with fire knife dancing, and a grand Hawaiian feast, visiting the Pearl Harbor National Memorial and paying respects or learning about its historical significance, Ziplining down the majestic mountains and valleys, touring movie sites filmed here, snorkeling with the colorful fishes of the Pacific Ocean, going to all of the beautiful beaches on the island and much more. All of the activities are family-friendly and affordable. The sunsets and sunrises, beaches, and natural beauty sights are all free. The tourism industry in Hawaii is big and makes up more than 20% of the state’s economy. Every year, millions of visitors come to Hawaii. In 2017, there were over 9.4 million visitors that spent in total $16 billion dollars. On average, tourists spend around $300 a day and typically stay for 5 to 10 days. The total costs of an average stay in Hawaii would vary from $1,500-$3,000.The official currency of Hawaii is US dollars.



Air travel is a significant mode of transportation. Altogether, there are seven airports between the islands of Hawaii. The three major airports are the Daniel K. Inouye Airport, Hilo International Airport, and the Kona Airport. The Daniel K. Inouye Airport- known as the Honolulu International Airport (HNL), is one of the United States’ busiest airports. This is the main airport that visitors travel through as it is the largest airport in the State of Hawaii. Many airlines operate at this airport, including Hawaiian Airlines, Delta, Air New Zealand, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Korean Air, AirAsia X, WestJet, etc. Much like the many air carriers, nonstop departures from HNL to cities are numerous with places like Los Angeles, Manila, Melbourne, Nagoya, Narita, Newark, New York, Oakland, Pago Pago, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, etc.


Travel by water is popular in Hawaii. There are three ports in Oahu, Hawaii: the Honolulu Harbor, Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbor, and Kewalo Basin. The Honolulu Harbor processes almost everything distributed to Oahu’s stores and warehouses, equivalent to or greater than 8 million tons of cargo. Kewalo Basin is a commercial boat harbor located in Honolulu with multi-uses like water excursions or convenient docking. The Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbor, located at the former Naval Air Station Barbers Point in West Oahu, is a smaller seaport harbor that mostly handles liquid and dry bulk cargo. Out of these three ports, the Honolulu Harbor is extraordinary because it also consists of two terminals for cruise ships’ primary use: Pier 2 and Pier 11. Some cruise lines that operate within these piers include but are not limited to Norwegian Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruises, Princess Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, etc. The cruise lines mentioned previously are based in Florida and California.


The ground transportation system in Hawaii is another transportation option that encompasses the bus, shuttle, taxi, trolley, and rental cars. The Honolulu Bus (TheBus) is an inexpensive way of getting to any destination on the island with 4,200 stops and 93 routes. One way fare costs less than three dollars, and a special 4-day bus pass is offered for visitors who opt-out to pay the everyday fee or buy a monthly/annual pass. The shuttle is another way of traveling on Oahu. Speedishuttle is one of the luxury airport shuttles that claims to be fast, convenient, and affordable. However, it shouldn’t be highly recommended as the only transportation source as they run on limited schedules. Taxis in Oahu are another way of getting around to destinations. The infamous and largest local taxi dispatch company in Hawaii, TheCAB, provides 24/7 taxi service and services around the whole island. The trolleys, specifically the Waiki Trolley, is another way of traveling and exploring through downtown Honolulu at a reasonable price. Rental cars are another way of traveling but at your own time and pace. They are usually located at the airport with big-name rental car companies like Enterprise, Hertz, Avis, Budget, etc. These ground transportations are all based on the island and mostly in downtown Honolulu.

About Location:

There are no railways available, yet one is currently under construction. There are two inter-island passenger ferries (the Molokai Ferry and the Maui-Lanai Expeditions Ferry) that offer a less than 3-hour travel between islands that costs about $30-$50. The shuttle is another way of traveling on Oahu. Speedishuttle is one of the luxury airport shuttles that claims to be fast, convenient, and affordable as an average tour rounds up to $15 to $30 per person. Taxis in Oahu are another way of getting around to destinations and costs up to $350 to travel around the whole island if you travel with TheCAB.

Water Activities:

Natural Wonders:

Sports & Recreation Spas:

Arts, Culture, Entertainment:


Day 1

Day at the beach with a side of Hollywood fever. Swim, snorkel, and kayak with the kids at one of the popular beaches of Hawaii. Visit the filming location for infamous Hollywood movies.


Kailua beach is ranked the second most beautiful beach on Oahu (with Lanikai being the first) with its white powdery sand and blue waters. This beach has a park that provides bathroom facilities, showers,  picnic tables, and water activities. Swimming at this beach is cost-free, but rentals for snorkeling gears and kayaks are available and affordable. Swimming near the shore, going further out to snorkel with the turtles and colorful fishes, or kayaking to the Mokulua islands are all family inclusive! After the water activities, walk on down to the Kailua shopping center and select where you want to eat from the many options offered.


Home to the Ko’olau mountain ranges, the Kualoa Ranch is both a natural wonder and an attraction to Hawaii. Below the majestic mountains, you can find the film locations for some of your favorite Hollywood movies like “Jurassic Park” or “Jumanji 2: Welcome to the Jungle.” As you tour on open-air 4WD vehicles, you will see specific scene locations and know its backstory. Don’t worry, there are stops so you have enough time to take pictures running down the hill as they did in “Jurassic Park” with the family or simply beautiful landscape pictures of the greenery.

Day 2

Experience a unique history lesson. Learn about the endangered native plants in a botanical garden as you stroll down to a valley with a secret waterfall. Interact with historical sites and witness living history.


Waimea Valley consists of 52 themed gardens and 5000 documented types of tropical and subtropical plants. It is a significant cultural and archeological site that allows its visitors to deepen their knowledge of the endangered and indigenous plants and animals that can be spotted anywhere on the location and has remains of historical structures. At the end of the walk, you can hear the powerful 45-foot falls and swim in its freshwater. There are life vests provided so all the family can safely enjoy.


The Pearl Harbor National Memorial is an important historical site that honors the 2,388 Americans that died during the attack on Pearl Harbor. The 184-foot memorial preserves the remains from the surprise attack Japan launched and is a great visual learning experience for the kids. They get to see more than what is in the textbook and can tour the museum, WWII submarine, USS Bowfin, battleship USS Missouri, etc. It is a rich historical site that the family can learn from together.

Day 3

Explore the islands of Polynesia in one place. Then take a drive out to the far east side of Oahu to find breathtaking natural wonders.


According to USA Today, the Polynesian Cultural Center is the most popular attraction in Oahu. PCC offers a variety of things to do while at the attraction like visiting the islands of Polynesia in 6 authentic villages. These villages represent Hawaii, Fiji, Aotearoa (New Zealand), Samoa, Tahiti, and Tonga. In all of the villages, you are given the opportunity to experience the unique traditions and customs of that island. For instance, fire-making in the village of Samoa. After watching a demonstration, you are allowed to try and create a fire too. There are other activities besides fire-making in the villages like coconut husking, climbing up a coconut tree, fire knifing, poi balls, weaving, dancing, etc! After visiting all of the villages, be sure to watch the “Ha: Breath of Life” show that is filled with song, dance, and of course fire!


The Makap’u Lighthouse trail is a hiking trail that transcends in a moderate incline to a 647-ft. summit. It is an easy route with its paved road and is a trail that the whole family and even the dog can enjoy. At the summit, you can view the beauty of the never-ending Pacific Ocean and see the tide pools at the bottom. Not too far from the lighthouse trail is one of the natural wonders of Hawaii known as the Halona BlowHole. Located near Sandy’s beach park, the blowhole can be a wet but scenic spot. However, the tide can determine if the blowhole will splash. But even if the destination doesn’t turn out as you thought, the ride there will justify it.



  • Geographic Advantage- Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, there is no competition closeby, and indeed is a getaway from home for vacation.
  • Consistent Climate-Since Hawaii is near the equator, there is not much variation in the weather, and is known to be enjoyable for its warm sunny but cool climate.
  • Diverse Recreational Activities-There are many places to visit beside Hawaii’s infamous beaches that can either educate, surprise, challenge, or relax you.


  • Geographic Disadvantage-Location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is distant from other places causing it to be more expensive to travel.
  • Locals/Natives Conflict-Sometimes locals will be upset about tourists because of their history of trespassing sacred places or upset about Hawaii’s urbanization (because of tourism).
  • Traffic/Overcrowded-Hawaii is a popular destination which causes large groups of tourist to visit all the time, resulting in traffic and crowded places (beaches, attractions, etc.).


  • Culture appreciation-One of the tourism strategies Hawaii uses is its cultural significance; This helps people understand Hawaii’s rich Polynesian culture and preserve it. 
  • Transportation options-Traveling between the island of Hawaii doesn’t always mean getting on a plane; there is the choice to travel by ferry and ship.
  • Popularity Advantage-Although Hawaii is becoming a popular tourism destination that is always evolving to fulfill their needs (i.e., more hotels), this can be used to its advantage and bring more awareness to its nature and wildlife sustainability.


  • Too Expensive-Hawaii may suffer because of their high cost in travel (and in general) that may cause tourists to stop visiting slowly.
  • Crime and Drug Use Increase-There has been a positive correlation between tourism development in Hawaii and crime and drug use; This may become a future problem for tourists visiting.
  • Fear from world events-Along with the 911 terrorist attacks, one of the world events jeopardizing many tourism destinations like Hawaii is COVID 19. With the common anxiety of leaving your home, many of these destinations and the tourism industry suffer a blow that many believe they will never recover from or will take many years.


Hawaii is one of the most beautiful destinations that should be on every traveler’s bucket list! Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, these isolated chain islands create the perfect getaway from one’s everyday life. Come and experience Hawaii’s culture and find out what makes it different from any other tourism destination. Besides the sandy beaches and deep blue waters, Hawaii offers a diverse variety of locations and activities to view and participate in. Are you seeking new heights? The Maili Pill Box hike and Diamond Head are open to all visitors who are up for the challenge and aren’t afraid of heights. Want to do more than swimming at the beach? Then try new water activities like kayaking, snorkeling, or even dolphin/whale watching! Are you interested in learning about your new favorite vacation spot historical and cultural significance? Arts, culture, and entertainment options consist of but are not limited to the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC), Pearl Harbor National Memorial, Bishop Museum, and Iolani Palace.
