Amazing to hear people expressing views on heresay and what they have read. Talk about your experiences. I lived in Hawaii for 16 years and I can tell you that Hawaii has crime and Waikiki is crwded. Yes, it has prostitutes and yes there are local bullies.
Now , the rest of the story. Unlike Jamaica tourists in Hawaii feel safe. It may be a false sense but they feel safe. Hawaii is not filthy and smoggy as some earlier posted.
Hawaii has, once you get out of Waikiki, amazing beauty that matches any tropical place in the world. And I have fimed in 106 countries over 35 years.
Jamaica also is a beautiful place but unlike Hawaii, it feels unsafe. Maybe because the subconscious fear of Black people inveted in the minds of Anglos.
Fear is fear no matter how it got there. And definetly one is hassled in Jamaica and not in Hawaii.
Now the more you visit any Island the safer you'll feel. In both Islands there exist anti-white sentiment. But this almost never, affects your trip.
Be careful, relax, and enjoy either Island. I'd recommend Hawaii. I know it's cheaper once you leave the hotels, and it has more beauty and variety.
But, if you choose Jamaica and let's say Negril, you'll have a wonderful time as well.
