Hawaii, USA | photoreport
"Aloha" - so begins each letter, whether it is from the consul or the manager of the hotel, which takes you instantly mentally on this paradise earth. Hawaii, though not the purpose of this trip, but it left an indelible mark.
Hawaii - the most remote from all the state of the USA. Here was born and lived for 10 years, Barack Obama, and then removed a lot of famous films and TV series: Jurassic Park, Lost, 50 First Dates itp Yes, I will agree that it is not the best movies / series, but at least known.
Why it is considered that this is one of the most expensive states of the USA, although I would not say that hotels are expensive, but still comparable in cost to New York.
The first part of the article that state revenue is tourism. Every year, Hawaii visits to 9 million people, with most of them coming from the civilized countries in Asia: Japan, South Korea itp
Had to fly through the familiar, on a trip to Fiji, Seoul Incheon International Airport and loved that, just on the head, udelyvaet all airports (particularly in Europe): here and free showers, free internet access, massage chairs and the chairs are comfortable for sleeping. Also a lot of places where you can comfortably spend time, and very friendly Koreans ready to work out schedules until the last client. With our European mentality and so will not work.
Already approaching the most civilized of the Hawaiian Islands of Oahu begins charging its atmosphere. The island is quite densely populated, even in the highlands.
[My new travel-video]
The island is pretty militarized. Almost constantly in sight there is anything the military: ships, aircraft or just the soldiers on the street.
After Fiji was so anxious over these green vegetation of the mountains, the bright sun, some external accuracy around and I got it. Honolulu - a civilized paradise, and wherever you look, even to the very outskirts of the city - anywhere your eyes are not just happy, they say thank you :) Always bright sun, at least the clouds. All clouds are mainly delayed over high mountains and so there and remain.
The main tourist district of Honolulu - Waikiki (Waikiki). There is also the world's most famous beach. How to be beautiful not looked this water - it is quite muddy and special pleasure diving does not deliver.
On the horizon you can see the crater of an extinct volcano - Diamond Head.
Hawaii - a place of pilgrimage for surfers from around the world. Northern coast of the island of Oahu draws that are formed in the winter of 10-meter waves that are so attracted to experienced athletes.
Summer beach looks completely normally and the only thing that distinguishes it from other beaches - the presence on it of large turtles that crawl ashore and not afraid of people.
A typical Hawaiian tourist.
Hawaii is very well developed services for the entertainment of tourists. Many large and small buses filled Honolulu every day, carrying thousands of tourists.
Every day, at 6-8 in the morning takes you to the next bus tour and gives back around 4-5 pm (depending on the tour).
Here is one of the excursions - swimming in the cage with the sharks. 2:00 road and only 20 minutes in the cage.
Why not Fiji? Such landscapes - my weakness.
The famous beach Hanauma Bay. Formed long ago by volcanic eruptions. Is now one of the best beaches for snorkeling, but still on the transparency of the water can not be considered too good. Yes, in the photo you can see that the water is clean - she was and is, but when you dive, you get is not quite what we expected - all too dull.
Famous place - Kualoa Ranch. Just here and shoot a lot of famous films. Many different entertainment traveled into the jungle, riding quads and trips to places inaccessible for hiking.
The famous Pearl Harbor. The place where the December 7, 1941 Japan is almost completely defeated the fleet of the United States. Not the most interesting excursion
Arizona Memorial. It is here that lies the wreck of the American fleet Arizona. Japanese bomb fell into the bay with the ammunition ship and exploded: in one moment immediately killed 1,179 people. Ship and lies and its parts can be seen from the water, and made the top site for tourists.
Hawaii - the most expensive state of the United States. Real estate is so expensive, that to be people working more than one job. As for the troops - is strangely Asians. Because there is likely to about 80% of the population. Yes, they come here for a vacation with their entire families, but many have stayed here and live a pretty good feel.
I confess that this is the first place on earth from which I'm not tired after a few days. When the bright sunshine and green around becomes even more green, all is forgotten and you just enjoy life. Memorable.
