Hawaii is the perfect destination for those who like beaches, surf, wild landscapes, all within an archipelago with a unique history an culture. Honolulu, located on the island of Oahu, is the perfect place to relax during the day and party when the sun goes down. The clear blue waters of Kailua Beach, the famous Waikiki, the historic architecture of Iolani Palace and the timeless memorials of Pearl Harbor – you’ll find it all on Oahu.
The graceful Hawaiian dance of hula, the meaningful songs accompanied by ukulele, the lei garlands and the various interesting art forms are just some of the traditions and cultural practices that make Hawaii unique. At the Polynesian Culture Center in Oahu you can explore six Pacific Island villages, exhibits and sample local foods.
The Hawaiians' love for their tradition and culture can be seen in various festivals, such as Merrie Monarch Hula Festival, Aloha Festival and the Lei Day. The hula dance is deeply rooted to the religion of the native Hawaiians and it's considered as a sacred ritual. All the movements have specific meanings.
