I’ve been around the world and there’s truly no place like Hawaii. I’ve been there 5 times (including a 4 week honeymoon on 4 islands) since the $87 mistake airfare+hotel deal back in 2006. Of course if you go all the way there and just stay in the touristy city of Honolulu the whole time you may as well go to South Beach and save yourself the long flight. While Oahu does have beautiful sights, it’s the neighbor islands that are each a true gem in their own unique way.
Besides for being stunningly beautiful, the little things are great as well. As a US state your money and cell phone work just like at home. Car rentals are easy and are the same as renting on the mainland. And all of the kosher food you buy at Costco, Walmart, and Whole Foods can be found in Hawaii as well. Sure prices are higher, but that’s the price of paradise.
I have a Hawaiian Airlines corporate account for DansDeals, and booking through the corporate portal entitles you to 2 free checked bags and free standby. If you’re interested you can email me (dan at dansdeals.com) with your name, date of birth, and when you want to travel (you can check fares on Hawaiian.com). There is a $5 per person booking fee for each inter-island flight.
I usually recommend spending 5-7 days on an island. Less than 4 on an island would be too short and if you have more than 8 days you should explore another island.
Want to tag on a flight to Hawaii for free with an international award ticket? American for example allows you to book a one-way flight from Tel Aviv to JFK, stopover in NYC for as long as you want, and then fly from JFK to Alaska, Hawaii, LA, Miami, etc. for the same 45,000 miles as just the Tel Aviv-JFK flight. The travel date of the “trailing” flight can even be changed for free. The reverse works as well. Fly back from Hawaii to JFK, stopover in NYC for as long as you want, and then fly from JFK to Tel Aviv for just 45,000 miles.
