Hawaii Travel Tips

Getting There:
Getting to Hawaii can be done by air, or by ship. Most vacationers opt to get to the islands by air to maximize their travel time and experiences with Honolulu International Airport the primary destination. Your travel options are many and can be confusing at times. Here is where Hawaiian Travel Inc® can help. We take the guesswork out of planning your next trip to Hawaii. With the overwhelming amount of information available to vacationers, it's almost impossible to make sense of it all. Hawaiian Travel Inc® knows Hawaii - it's all we do - Let us plan your next trip to the islands.

Getting Around Towns and Cities
Good local bus services are provided on Oahu by TheBus (tel: (808) 848 5555; website: www.thebus.org), which covers the entire island with over 60 routes. An exact flat-fare system operates and free transfers are available on request. On other islands, taxis are available and car hire is possible. Limited public bus services operate on Kauai and Hawaii. Metered taxis are available throughout the main islands.

On Maui, the Lahaina-Kaanapali & Pacific Railroad (website: www.sugarcanetrain.com), also known as the Sugar Cane Train, offers daily 30-minute rides between Old Town Lahaina and Kaanapali Beach Resort.

How to Avoid a Sunburn
The sun in Hawaii is the strongest in the world. Don't ruin your vacation by getting a bad sunburn.
Stay out of the sun completely. That's not easy to do in Hawaii!
Limit outdoor activities between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Play golf, lay in the sun, swim, etc., in the early morning or late afternoon. If you must sunbathe get some sun before you visit Hawaii. The Hawaiian sun is very dangerous to pale skin. Beware of cloudy days. Clouds and particulate matter in the air scatter sunlight. You can still burn even on a cloudy day. Wear a good pair of sun glasses and some kind of protection -- the looser the better -- on your head.

How To Avoid Jet Lag
Eliminate stress and anxiety as much as possible before you fly. Get plenty of exercise before your trip and try to avoid getting a cold. Eat plenty of starch, carbohydrates and greens before you travel. Get plenty of sleep the night before your trip and wear comfortable clothing during your flight. Set your watch to the time of your destination (Hawaii or home) before you board the plane. Drink lots of water before, during and after your flight -- 8 to 12 ounces every hour is recommended. The dry air in plane cabins causes dehydration. Yawn or chew gum to alleviate the pressure build-up in your ears, especially during takeoff and landing.
