Summer is the busiest time of year for Honolulu, which means higher prices for flights and hotels alike. Travelling in the earlier part of the summer season, before school holidays, is best. Also, avoid any major U.S. holidays, such as the Fourth of July. For cheap flights to Honolulu and bargains on hotels, visit after the first week of September when the U.S. Labour Day holiday occurs, such as during the months of October – November. Weather is often favourable in Honolulu year-round due to the island nation’s proximity to the equator. Average daytime temperatures in the summer are about 26 degrees Celsius, while the winter months experience in the range of 21 – 26 degrees Celsius for an average temperature.

How to get around in Honolulu?

Bus

Oahu’s public bus system is extensive and is called TheBus. Fares are $2.50 USD one-way for adults, $1.25 USD for youth (6 – 17), and free for 1 child under the age of 5. Maui’s Bus Public Transit System offers services throughout the region and costs $2 USD for each boarding.

Moped and Motorcycle Rentals

Throughout the islands, you will find motorcycle and moped rentals. Mopeds, however, only go 48 kilometres / 30 miles per hour. So be cautious about where you ride your moped when sharing the road with other vehicles.

Things to do and Places of Interest in Hawaii

Kauai is ideal if you want to do more hiking and trail hunting than beach leisure. You can take a trail that passes through a cascading waterfall or go kayaking. There are fishponds throughout the island that are thousands of years old. Oahu is ideal for tourists who want to enjoy the best beaches, crystal clear waters, and take some surfing lessons. The famous North Shore is a must-see while on the island, and there are plenty of farm-to-table eateries speckling the beach. Maui is the island of choice if you want to see small villages, artists in action, and go whale-watching. The beaches of Maui are pristine, and the water is always inviting.

Moloka’I is the island that stays true to nature. Here you will not see any traffic lights and it is common to see fishermen bringing in their fresh catch for local cafes. Take a mule ride to a remote settlement on the island and enjoy the adventures without technology interrupting the calm serenity of the place. The Big Island, which is the centre of Hawaii, is the largest island in the chain and has active volcanoes you can tour, historic parks, and the black sand beach. Lanai is home to multiple bays, trails, and a world-renowned golf course. It is the perfect place to picnic and just soak up the island atmosphere.

Tips and Tricks for Visiting Hawaii

Hawaii is a cluster of exotic islands; therefore, you might find yourself jumping from island to island to see all of the sights. If you are on a smaller budget, plan ahead and pick an island that has the attractions you are interested in so that you do not waste money island hopping. At sacred sites, such as a temple or dedicated rock wall, speak softly and walk quietly through the areas. Be careful to never leave trash behind. Also, do not alter any flowers or rocks, because your action can be interpreted as a sign of disrespect. Appreciate the leis handed to you at the airport as well as your hotel. These are symbols of peace given to visitors, and dismissing them is a sign of disrespect. The Hawaiian people have great respect for their elders; therefore, if you see the local elderly people, be sure to greet them and say “Aloha”.
