Tips for traveling to Hawaii

1. The shuttle from the airport to your hotel or hotel to airport will be $8. If you can put your luggage on your lap, you can ride the bus for $2.

2. You can also go on the bus just about anywhere for $2. Bus to Pearl Harbor is no. 42.

3. Car rental for trip around the island is about $45. Don't go on the weekend because the beaches are crowded then with locals.

4. Food is more expensive than here. They do have McDonald's, Burger King, etc. at Waikiki. Cheap sandwiches, etc., at ABC Stores. Try the Food Court at AlaMoana Shopping Center for all the Asian food at decent prices.

5. I enjoyed walking around and looking at the windows of the famous, expensive stores. They mainly serve Japanese custormers. Gucci, Bulgari, Tiffany, Cartier, Fendi, and others have stores there.

6. There is a museum on the second floor of the Sheraton Moana Surfrider that covers the early history of tourism in Waikiki. The Moana was the first hotel built there.

The Father Damien museum was closed for renovation when we were there. He worked among the lepers at the colony of Molokai.

Both museums are free.
