No trip to North America is complete without a stay on the magical Hawaiian Island of Oahu, one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. It’s the ideal way to begin or end any North America holiday because you’re free to do as much—or as little—as you like. Snorkel in crystalline waters, surrounded by reefs full of colourful fish. Get a bird’s-eye view of the island on a spectacular flightseeing tour or during a hike up legendary Diamond Head. Golf at one of the many world-class courses. Watch skilled surfers “Hang Ten” at the North Shore, the “Surfing Capital of the World.” Shop in the world-class Waikiki boutiques—or in the quaint shops in one of the country’s oldest Chinatowns. You may choose to visit Pearl Harbor with its poignant USS Arizona Memorial, and ‘Iolani Palace, the only royal palace on U.S. soil or attend a luau, and experience Pacific Islander traditions at the Polynesian Cultural Centre. Or maybe just relax on a postcard-perfect beach with a refreshing Hawaiian Shave Ice in hand. Isn’t it time to discover the aloha spirit yourself?
