Incredible Travel Planner - See the videos and then plan a spectacular vacation to a land of incredible beauty and fun. The following is a short overview of this enchanting paradise.

Oahu - See Honolulu, Waikiki, the north shore & the Bonsai Pipeline; pineapple fields; Waikiki Aquarium with reef sharks, sea dragons; the Polynesian Cultural Center with dances by native Fiji, Tahiti and other Polynesians. The Bishop Museum has the cloak of Kamehameha, Hawaii's most famous ruler. It was made from feathers of 60,000 birds. At the museum also see models of whaling ships, which were based in Hawaii in the 19th century when they hunted whales throughout the Pacific.

Maui - This island has beautiful golden beaches, shopping and spectacular golf courses. Or take the challenging drive to Hana with its dramatic waterfalls, lush rainforests, and picture perfect views, plus the 7 sacred pools, which almost look like the Garden of Eden. Mount Haleakala is called the House of the Sun and at the top of this mountain, you'll see a crater, which is bigger than Manhattan. It's over 2 miles wide and 7 miles long. For a unique challenge take a bike ride down - one of world's longest downhill bike rides. Iao Valley is one of Hawaii's most spectacular sites. In fact, it's so beautiful that it's been called the Yosemite of the Pacific. Inside the center of this heavenly valley is the stunning Iao Needle, which rises over 1200 feet. Nearby there's a small park, which pays tribute to Hawaii's diverse heritage, including immigrants who came from Korea, Japan and China. There are gardens, and pavilions.

The Big Island - You'll see Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and get a close up look at these stunning displays of nature including explosive volcanoes with lava flows. And see the Thurston Lava tube, which was formed after the lava flows, stopped. The cooler outer layers hardened but the hotter inner layers continue to empty out of the tubes. Then see the town of Hilo, where many cruise ships stop. Nearby are Rainbow Falls and also an even much larger even more stunning 420-foot waterfall. Plus see Hawaii's most sacred areas for their royalty, which includes wooden guardians watching over a sacred temple where over 20 chiefs were buried. This is where there were ceremonies for the high chief, his wives and warriors. It is where Hawaii's chiefs both relaxed and managed the country. Captain Cook was the first European to land in Hawaii. Hawaiians initially thought that he was a God, since his impressive ships appeared during a sacred festival. But quickly, they realized he was a mere mortal. There were fights and Captain Cook was killed. Coffee and bananas are grown here and agriculture still plays an important role in Hawaiian's economy. Also Hawaii has cowboys -- that's right cowboys. Mexicans came to Hawaii in the early 1800s to herd cattle even before cowboys were common in the Western U.S. The largest Ranch was the Parker Ranch which at one point covered almost half million acres. Since this is a young island, it has only a few white sandy beaches. And on this active volcanic island, the sand can be black.

Kauai - See Waimea Canyon, Kauai's most famous site. As you travel through this area, you'll see waterfalls, which are over 700 feet high. Many filmmakers have used this dramatic scenery for films such as Raiders of the Lost Ark. The most popular resort along the southern coast is Poipu Beach, which has long stretches of golden sand. See the coconut coast and the north shore near Princeville. It's so impressive, that when they made the movie "South Pacific', they filmed it here. Further west at the end of the road is the base of a 1300-foot cliff, and it's where the Na Pali Coast begins.
