Already counting days and cannot wait for a vacation? Still don’t know where to go? Consider Hawaii – the top holiday destination! White sandy beaches, crystal clear water, pleasant climate – everything is here. Besides there are plenty of other attractions and activities – check them out in this list.

10. Honokohau Falls

The impressive waterfall is found in the West Maui Mountains. With a 335 m (1100 ft) plunge it is the tallest one in Maui. However, it is inaccessible for the hikers. The best way to admire this impressive natural wonder is from a helicopter.

Amazing views of Honokohau and other sites on a helicopter tour.

How to get there?

9. The Haiku Stairs

Found on the Island of Oahu, 3922 stairs are also deservedly known as the Stairway to Heaven. Although closed for repair, the adventurers manage to circumvent the security guard and climb the stairs regardless to admire the spectacular views.

8. Punaluʻu Beach

The beach deserves a separate introduction, due to its unique black sand. Found on the Big Island, the coloration is a result of a volcanic activity. It is also a place where endangered Green Sea turtles bask and can often be spotted here.

You can camp, have a picnic, watch turtles and bathe on the beach.

From Hawaii Belt Road take Ninole road or head towards the Sea Mountain Resort.

7. Queen’s Bath

A naturally formed dam is a pleasing attraction, which provides an exhilarating swim. In summer the bath is filled with warm clear water. The waterfall adjacent to the Queen’s Bath rinses off salty water – perfect natural resort!

When to go there?

In Summer.

The natural pool is found on Kauai island. Drive Highway 56 to the parking lot. Queen’s Bath is only 10 minutes walk from there.

6. Get Married

Hawaii is probably the most favorite and popular spot to get married. Rock stars, Hollywood actors and other couples exchange rings during a romantic ceremony on the beach, hill, lavender field, on a private island or even on a boat.

When to do that?

All year round.

How to do that?

Arrange your wedding by applying for a marriage license first.

5. See the Volcanoes

Since Hawaii is of a volcanic origin, there are plenty of active volcanoes. Mauna Loa is the largest subaerial volcano in the world, while Kīlauea is the most active of the five volcanoes that form Hawaii. Real adventurers get as close as possible to snap a picture of an eruption.

How to island hop in Hawaii?

by redtulip

I am booking a trip to Hawaii soon and want to hear about the best way to visit other islands.
-Does anyone know of a good way to book a trip going into Maui and then leaving from Big Island? (All the bookings I have seen have you arriving and departing from the same location.)
-Is the best way to go about this is it fly in and out of Maui and take flights to the other islands while I am in Hawaii?
Thanks for the help.

Traveling in Europe (Austria-->Greece, the Alps)?

I am going to be studying abroad in Salzburg, Austria for the month of June. I will be allowed a few "free days." The longest time I have free is 5 days, and I have the afternoon after classes end (about 5?) to start my trip.
I would love to go to Greece, but I don't know if I will have enough time to get there and enjoy my time there. How long would it take to get there? and will I have time to relax and hit the beaches?
I would also like to climb the Alps, but is it safe to be an unfamiliar climber on the Alps? I have climbing experience, but I'm not sure how much the…

You could take one of those discount flights and be there by dark. then you spend your time.

If you are in Salzburg, and you want to hike the alps, you probably don't have to hike far from your door. Salzburg is pretty much IN the alps. Really beautiful country. And not that far from Switzerland, if you want to cross the border for a weekend, that should be easy to do.

What you really need to do is set yourself up a longer program of study, like a semester or even a year, so you can REALLY get a feel for your town and the semester,…

Specific places in France?

I want to go to some hidden treasures in France that are not too touristy. Some nice museums, gardens, interesting historical places, etc. If France has the biggest of something, I want to see it (like the biggest, i don't know, tree or icecream bowl)

Be creative please!

Uzes is a town in the languedoc-roussilon (probably spelled that wrong)
it's not too touristy and a beautiful historic town, i lived there for the summer!

if you're going to be in southern france, try montpelier for the beaches and lyon (not really southern) for the food!

I am going to study in France, should I learn French?

I am going to study in France for school, for a little under a month from the end of May to mid-June. I will be spending 2 and a half weeks in a small town a little south of Toulouse. So southern France of course. I will then spend a week in Paris. I am sure many people will speak English in Paris, but should I bother learning French for the time I am in southern France? I have traveled to other major cities in Europe where everyone spoke English, so I am not sure it is worth my time or not.

If you think you might be traveling a lot to French speaking countries or if in your future job a language is necessary I would learn it. Learning a language will take months and months of study. French is a beautiful language and you would be surpised how people speak it.

However you should get a travel guide and learn some basic sentences and phrases. In Paris many speak English, but you should not count on it. Toulouse is not Paris and there will not…
