We are going to Hawaii in October, have some questions:

Jump to last reply

1. Do we need visas coming from California?
2. Are the flights domestic or intentional?
3. Is it true, we will not be allowed out of the airport without a lei?
4. Will our ATM cards work there, or do we need to get local currency from the bank at home?
5. As Hawaii is 3 hours behind, do we still have to be at the airport 2 hours early or 1 hour late?
6. Do we need electricity converters?
7. What kind of SIM card do we need for our cell phones?
8. Can we get around with English only? Should we speak louder so the locals will understand?
9. At what time the lava is flowing, and on which island? If it’s raining, will the lava still be flowing?
10. What are the cleaning hours when the volcanoes are closed? Children will be very disappointed if we arrive at the closing hours.
11. Can sunset be seen from the East side of an island?
12. Where can we see “Hawaii 5-0”? Or is it an area code for HI? Is luau included? I am confused.
13. Why is Spam so popular when it only clogs emails?
14. Are there any topless beaches? I hope not, as it will be too distracting
for my husband.
15. To take a boat tour, would we have to line up outside without air-
conditioning?
16. And the most important question: are the islands anchored all the
times in the same places?
