Hawaii Holiday Packages and Destinations 2017
It’s all happening in Honolulu!
There’s just something about the state’s capital that captivates the attention as soon as you arrive, whether it be the floral necklaces to be found everywhere, or how no one in the city seems to have a care in the world. Surrounded by an endless sea of clear blue water, the positive vibe and atmosphere seem to make the days go longer and the time thoroughly enjoyed, which is definitely a plus for anyone on their own Hawaii holidays!
Attractions that will make you erupt!
Hawaii is perhaps best known for its stunning beauty and surrounding, pristine seas. Beneath the soil, however, lies the largest subaerial volcano in existence, Manua Loa, a powerful symbol of this intimate yet fragile area. Don’t be afraid though! Hawaiian volcanoes, when erupting, aren’t the huge, explosive scenes that we commonly associate with a volcano. They are rather a very slow, almost gentle lava flow that represents the pleasant nature of the island itself.
Speaking of volcanoes
Although no longer active, the remnants of the powerful Ko’olau Range – which is said to have formed Hawaii itself – have left behind an unusual yet beautiful array of rock formations known as the Diamond Head. A trek around the faux mountain range will reveal stunning scenery, as well as unspoilt views of the islands and the sea below. We’re also told that the locals have a rather unglamorous name for the rock formation too. Ahi, translating to tuna, is so called due to the range’s appearance when looked upon from Honolulu.
Fit for a king
Hawaii’s remarkable past as a kingdom is evident everywhere you go throughout the islands, with stunning architecture and sculptures all devoted to the long enduring dynasty. Of particular note is the grand visuals of ‘Iolani Palace, created for King Kamehameha III, perhaps the most famous of all the dignitaries. Kamehameha III was well noted for Hawaii’s embracing of western technology, whilst keeping his nation’s culture largely intact.
He’s also down in the history books for having the longest name of any regal entity – Keaweaweʻula Kīwalaʻō Kauikeaouli Kaleiopapa Kalani Waiakua Kalanikau Iokikilo Kīwalaʻō i ke kapu Kamehameha.
