5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Dream Destination Hawaii

Hawaiian Food

Hawaii serves more than just fresh fruit and kalua pork (a pig meat cooked in an underground oven) — though it is certainly those things. While you’re on the islands, try a cup of fresh poké, a raw tuna fish chunk tossed with various seasonings and ingredients, plus candlenut ( this is only available in Hawaii). Or have a taste of loco moco, a bowl of hot burger and fried egg with gravy, served on top of rice bowl. Also make time for some flavored shave ice, a Hawaiian specialty.

Hawaii’s diverse cultural history has resulted in a regional cuisine that’s as storied as it is delicious. You’ll find food influenced by everything; from Hawaii’s Polynesian roots to the American troops who brought Spam to the islands during the Second World War when fishing was prohibited and protein was scarce. And with a year-round growing season and local fish aplenty, the food on dream destination Hawaii is brighter, fresher, and more vibrant than you’ve ever experienced.

Active Volcanoes

There are 4 active volcanoes on the Big Island. This includes the famous Mauna Loa that has long been considered the largest volcano on Earth. While there’s no guarantee that any of the island’s volcanoes will be flowing lava during your Hawaii Tours, even a quiet volcano is a marvel of nature. A visit to the Big Island’s Hawaii National Volcano Park offers plenty of opportunities to get (relatively) up close and personal with these geological wonders. You will also have the chance to learn a bit more about their history and how they work.

Luau

You can’t go to Hawaii without attending a luau. In Hawaiian, the word “lu’au” actually refers to the root of the taro plant. It’s incorporated into many dishes served at large Hawaiian banquets or celebrations. Over time, luau has simply come to stand in as a shorthand for “party.” Typically, a luau will involve kalua pork and poi, as well as hula dancers, live musicians, and leis worn by guests and performers alike.

Surfing

Experienced surfers must’ve known that the waves in dream destination Hawaii are among the world’s best. However, even novice surfers can easily hang ten while they’re visiting. There are a lot of surfing lessons on all of the islands. Instructors are on site to offer newbies an opportunity to learn appropriate form and safety. Try your luck at standing up on the board while catching a wave.

Music

Like most everywhere else on the planet, Hawaii produces its fair share of pop stars and contemporary musicians. But the islands also have a rich musical history. Slack-key guitar songs and ukulele music among the styles and genres are most closely associated with Hawaii. Hawaii’s Indigenous culture also influences its music; the ukelele, a stringed bow that is played with the mouth, is the only Indigenous Hawaiian instrument.
