Which hotel would you recommend for Lanai, Hawaii? Has anyone stayed the the Hotel Lanai?
I found online a George Kahumoku Jr. slack key show on Maui. Sounds like it would be good entertainment. Has anyone ever been to it? If so, what did you think? Did you do dinner and the show or just the show?
We will be traveling to Hawaii and undecided at this time which island. Is there anywhere that has "Don Ho" or "Danny Kaleikini" style entertainment? Yes, we are senior citizens.
I am visiting here in May to explore the possibility of living there permanently for a few years. I know there is more rain on this side of the island and it is windier also danger of tsunamis. From my research I believe that the rain is mainly in the late night hours and early morning. Is this mostly true? I know apartment rentals are also less pricey than the western side. I would appreciate any and all input, thoughts and ideas. I will also be checking out the western side.
My wife and I plus our 23 and 18 year old sons will be in Kihei for holidays. Any suggestions on what (or not) to see and do? The same for restaurants? Thanks
I have read it is a good idea to drive straight to the pools, then do the road in reverse. I don't know if this is a stupid question, but will I still be able to use the Road to Hana CD? Or will it be complicated, I don't want to miss anything.
Thinking of going on the Mountain Riders Sunrise Bike Tour, the day after we arrive, figure early pick-up (ie 2-3am)won't be too hard as we haven't adjusted to island time change. Anyways, reviews seem good and bad. We have three kids, aged 16, 14 and 11. Do you feel they will be okay on this tour? Will bikes be the appropriate size for them? Any opinions or helpful tips greatly appreciated. Thxs!!!
I'm wondering if I"m able to fit all of this in, in one day. I'll be staying in Kona but would like to drive the Hamakua Coast, 4 mile scenic route and see Akaka Falls. I also would like to see Hiilawe Falls and Waipi'o Valley. Last stop would be Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the Black Sand Beach. I know it's 2 hr drive from Kona to Hilo. Any information would be great.
We are going to Kauai in a few weeks. Ideally we would like to stay in a laid back place with a pool on a sandy beach, with surfing nearby. Any suggestions?
I am a group leader of 25 persons an I need few answers about transports and their price :
- from the airport to Waikiki Beachside Hostel / 2556 Lemon Road ?
- and from this hotel to the Wet n' Wild aquaparc ?
Thanks a lot !

As a first time visitor to the beautiful state of Hawaii, what is the best time of the year to visit the island and what island and hotel would recommend
I am 30 and my husband is 34. We have an 11 year old daughter and can't decide between Maui or Oahu for August. Please help!
Ok, looking into finding places to stay on Big Island, Maui and Kauai.
We are only two persons travelling, but have sort of fallen in love with the idea of having and appartment/house type of thing, with kitchen and stuff.
What is the best way to find the places? Any recommendations for online services? Any specific suggestions would also be much appreciated.
Our budget is limited. I was definitely hoping to stay on the low side of $150/night.
how is the goat hunting on the mountain these days
does anyone know the cheapest possible place to stay on maui. i am very attracted to go there, however i find only relatively expensive places on the web.
We'll be going to Hawaii this summer for the first time. We've got three weeks total, and are trying to decide which Islands to visit. I'm definitely wanting to see Kauai. Debating whether to see both Big Island and Maui in addition, or just doing one of them.
We're into National Parks, diving, light hiking, and bigtime snorkelling (maybe a little beaching/surfing).
We do however want to have a little spare time, for just taking it easy, so my real issue is probably whether we will have that if we do all three islands.
Going to Waikiki for 9 days in late April, don't want to waste anytime whilst there, wondering if anybody knows of any hidden gems or awesome things to do there. If people have any recommendations or ideas about being shown around that would be great, Ive got a few thing in mind, i am super out going so any idea would be awesome.
Do the locals wear jeans out there at all?
Maybe at night?
Im headed out there sunday and don't wanna dress like a kook.

I am stock shooter. I supply photos to educational textbooks, travel media.
My March-April itinerary is SYD-BNE-MEL-HNL-LAX.
At each location I am looking for free observation decks

I can take city views -- no window better than window.
Any advice from those "in the know" appreciated. Thanks!

Hi...I'm a single guy who will be staying in Waikiki for 7 nights beginning this Friday, Feb 21...departing Feb 28...if anyone wants to get together to hang out some, have lunch etc....lemme know!
I am going to Honolulu for th first time in March. I am staying near Waikiki and was wondering where the best place to go out at night would be? I'm a single guy in my mid 20's and was hoping to be around the same age group and atmosphere. Also, is there anything I HAVE to do while I'm there? Any thing that can't be passed up?
I (37 years old, single traveler) will be traveling to Hilo in May. I am looking for a nice budget (no hostel) place to stay.
Can anyone recommend me?
What is the best way to prepare for this adventure?
I want to rent a car at the Honolulu cruise port. How close is the nearest agency? Is the airport the closest? Is there a shuttle to/from?
I'll be going to Honolulu in December and really want to do early morning Sunrise beach yoga while I'm there. I can't find anything. Any recommendations?
