You were fortunate to visit this island in 1999, when the economy was good. Now, the politicians here have put the island economy into severe stress, not knowing where they can steal money from.
The taxpayers are getting fed up with what's going on, yet they refuse to vote.
This year is an election year, with many changes about to happen in political offices. The question is are we going to recycle our old politicians, who have bankrupted the system, into new offices, or are we going to elect new blood.
By the time you arrive here, you will find out what has happened. Just ask the people who are working at where you are staying, about what is happening in politics.
If you are here in Dec. you might be able to catch the big surf on the North Shore of Oahu, but plan on spending all day there, as the traffic is really bad if the surf is up. Pack some food, water, and toilet paper in a cooler and enjoy the surf.
Check to see what is happening in Waikiki if you are staying for the New Year's celebration, as the hotels have all kinds of things going on New Year's Eve. I don't know what your budget will be, but, the tickets will be pricy.
The President of the United States may be spending his Chistmas/New Years vacation here so seccurity may be tight on the island of Oahu.

Any way, have fun and be safe.

It is not a beautiful island any more. Rapidly turning into a huge trash pile. Hours are spent waiting in construction traffic which has lasted TEN years.

Bring plenty disinfectant.

Remember Mufi Hannemann...he's our mayor now. Visit Hawaii in 10 years and you can experience his rail transportation system. Why go to Disneyland when Hawaii has the Billion doller ride!

If you want to see the real Hawaii, I suggest you go to the other islands. Honolulu (Waikiki) is just getting too crowded for most people.
It is becoming like any large city.
They are starting to stress out, and taking their frustrations out on each other.
Whereas, on the other islands, the people are more laid back and the pace of life is just starting to get hectic there. It is more like Hawaii was during the 1970's
I suggest you go to the island of Hawaii where you can see the volcano erupting up close. It is a spectacular sight. Waterfalls all around the east side of the island are another treat.
You can visit the city of refuge where, if you were persecuted and made it to the city of refuge, you would be granted immunity from persecution.
Also on the Big Island, on the Northwest side of the island is the birthplace of Kamehameha I the chief who united the islands, and the Heiau he built before launching his attack on the other islands.
If you are lucky, you might be able to see snow on Mauna Kea in December and later drive down to the beach for a swim.
Have a safe trip.

Aloha Makoae. Please don't listen to those posters that report that Hawaii is not what you remember. Those people are what we call HAOLES. No matter where you go you will find them. They are what you would call White Americans. You know them. We are suffering a recession which the whole world is. When you start hearing about politicians it always bad news. After all there is never a good politician(Govermnor or Mayor). Some of these people that responded to your comment are not even residence here, and the rest are transplanted mainlanders that no matter where they go are always a problem. We welcome you back to the islands. To us Hawaii is always the same and just as beautiful. You should understand that some don't like us and will spill their hate and vile with false statements.Like any place you go we have our problems. But far from the mainland states with real problems. We have gotten use to these people who are misfits in a state that welcomes everyone. We welcome you with Aloha.

Seabata, as you can tell by reading Freedom's response, there are still uneducated people in the islands who continue to vote democrat because they don't understand that the legislature sets fiscal policy. If you do come to the islands prepare to pay some of the highest taxes in the country on every purchase you make whether for services or merchandise.

Hawaii, as you've known it... is no longer.

Aloha is dead.

The PC crowd hates all outsiders, white people and the USA.

Thinking of moving here? DON'T

Thinking of visiting Hawaii? DON't

We had a girl killed right on Waikiki beach in full view just about a month or two ago. Had a visitor sucker punched and killed for taking a picture awhile ago. Hate crimes happen ALL THE TIME

Stay away.

Whaaaat?

What does my pic of Sieg Heil Obama have anything to do with me being a local Hawaiian??

Oh right, because you're a politically ignorant, uninformed, kool aid drinkin, HSB/HA brainwashed Hawaii Obama sheeple and you just can't believe a local Hawaiian like myself doesn't support Obama "because Obama went go Punahou and he stay from ova hea!!!"

It's because of people like you that the rest of the country thinks we're a peon, nobody fake state filled with stooopid people.

I just moved out of Hawaii to Florida (work) and i miss hawaii sooooo very much!!!! lived there for 5 years and wish i was still there. There is soooo much to do over there.
It is true, as many other cities, you could see bad stuff but in general hawaii still the same. I personally dont hang out much downtown as there are too many tourist and the beaches smells like tanning lotion lol stay away from traffic too!!!
oh ya... it is expensive and you probably dont have all the stores you would like but hey... there is tons of free outdoor stuffs to do!!!!!
All i have to say to the ppl that talks bad about is..... move out if u dont like it!!!!!!
Hawaii is still paradise!!!!! just stay away from haole ppl!! hahaaaa

Just like anywhere else in the world, Hawaii has it's up and downs. However, it still has it's magical luster. I am a Hawaiian woman, born and raised in the islands, who moved to Seattle and then to Iowa. Growing up in the islands for me was always magical, but when you're always around the same thing day after day, some people may take it for granted. Hawaii will always be my home and it's heavenly to me, but now I appreciate it more because I'm away. I would never trade my experiences of growing up in Hawaii. I miss it and love it so much, that writing this makes my heart hurt. I wish drug abuse and crime didn't grow like weeds in Hawaii, but it is and we need to be more proactive. I will return back home one day, refreshed and definitely more appreciative, ready to bask in the glow of Hawaii's charms and beauty! I hope I will be able to afford it though... If not I'd have to move in with 'Ohana...:-)
