Hawaii Travel Tips: 10 Things to Know Before You Go

Hawaii is a beautiful place to visit for vacation, but there are definitely some things to know before you go. I grew up in Hawaii and lived here most of my life, so it’s surprising how little people know about Hawaii before they travel here. Hawaii isn’t just a tropical island with grass shacks and coconuts. So here are 10 things that I think people should know about Hawaii before they visit:

1. Be prepared for the weather
2. Each island is different
3. Things that are banned in Hawaii
4. Traffic
5. The diverse population
6. More than just beaches
7. Expensive
8. “Hawaiian” versus “From Hawaii”
9. Hawaii’s history is complicated
10. Pidgin English

  1. I'll be coming to Hawaii 4/22 or 4/23. For a honeymoon I never had with my wife. It's for our 6 year anniversary. Where should I hike, places to eat and ect.

  2. Can you tell me how i can get from O’ahu to Big Island? There is any ferryboat or where i can buy tickets for flight?

  3. Would you be so kind and do a video on what items someone may take with them if moving from the mainland, to Oahu.

    Such as things hard to find on the island, or much cheaper, or even impossible to find on the island.

    If I could stock up on items that would make my 1st year on Oahu easier, what would they be?

    Thank you!

  4. It is interesting that Hawaii is banning plastic shopping bags, while much of the country has discovered that reusable shopping bags seem to be a health risk because they typically are not washed between uses.

  5. Do you think it would be ok by august 2020? I had planned one but not too sure because of covid 19

  6. I visited Oahu this last may with my (now ex) girlfriend and family and loved it. I'm planning on going back possibly in the late summer / early fall of this year.

    Part of me wants to move there (I'm a recent college grad this past December and have been working full-time since January) but the cost of everything and the distance from where I currently live (Upstate New York) makes me wonder about that.

  7. Aloha, tony from NYC I enjoy your videos very very much, and very resourceful, can you make a video on moving expense from the mainland like the east coast let say New York for instance I was thinking of shipping my stuff via Hawaiian Air if possible tell me what you think, please give some advice on this Mahalo
