Hawaii, well Oahu for me was a bit underwhelming. I was not prepared for the total commericialism that I discovered on arrival.
For the life of me I cant understand why you need Chanel and Bulgari on the beach!!

The Luau

A must do in Hawaii is to attend a Luau. I went to one at Paradise cove and it was awesome, great food and great company.

Pearl Harbour

A must see for national pride, whatever nation you come from is the Arizona memorial at Pearl Harbour.
It is hard to believe that this was the actual place where "Battleship Row" was bombed during WWII.

Pros and Cons

    We did the Paradise Cove luau just 3 weeks ago. Food was average, but the setting was lovely and the entertainment was fantastic. Also I saw 20ft waves @ Pipeline. Highlight of our 2 week trip for me!

    Beautiful opening shot Suzie! I will be there on the 27th of this month and I cannot wait. I will head North to avoid the hub. Joyce

    Suzy, Awesome opening shot!! That ought to be a postcard. I agree Oahu is far too commercialized, but if you ever go back hang out away from the maddeningn crowds and head up to the North Shore. Kat
