State tourism in 'crisis mode'
Hawaii's visitor industry is in "crisis mode" and it will take cooperation from community, government and business leaders to keep the entire economy from floundering during the downturn, according to Hawaii economist Leroy Laney, who released a tourism report yesterday commissioned by First Hawaiian Bank.

Hahaha! Good! I went back to Hawaii for a nice quick vacation and while I was trying to look for good deals, there weren't any. The hotels, car rentals and everything else to book my vacation was so expensive. Lucky my sister works for the airlines to get a very good airfare..i mean really good.
As I said before in other posts, Hawaii deserves everything bad that happens there. They got rid of the sugar cane and pineapple fields so they could make money off of that and rely solely on tourism.
My open letter to those who is thinking on going on a vacation: Go to places other than Hawaii to get the best deals and the bang for your buck. I was born and raised in Hawaii; am Hawaiian/filipino and left to get away. Been away for 16 years now and have no desire to go back. Try booking to Las Vegas..awesome hotel deals and all or go to California or Florida. Hawaii is pathetic now and I continue to wish worst to happen. Good luck Hawaii, you deserve it and your political views will always keep me feeling this way too!! Good for you!
