At the risk of beating this to death and posting yet another ''general'' type post on this, here I go (any info is appreciated).
Canadian, semi-experienced traveller, will be travelling with my GF March 3-11th, 2012.
We will be staying at the Wakiki Gateway, i know it it not the best but it is non-refundable and is about 80$ per night.
We are on a budget but will worry about the bill once we get back type of people! Here is my ''beta itinerary'' version 0.0.
-Arrive in HIA March 3rd at 6pm. At this point we will be happy just to breathe some fresh air after an 11 hour flight from Newark. I reserved a convertible from Aloha rents (Alamo) for the duration of our vacation for 410$ (good deal right?).
-Drive to the hotel, SSS, go out, walk around and try to stay awake until 9pm.
-March 4: Relax on the beach type day in Wakiki, walk around, buy stuff.
-March 5-9: Get out of Wakiki and drive around the island and go see stuff!!
March 10, 11: Last days in Oahu, walk around some more and leave the 11th at noon.
Ok so as you guys can see I have a pretty open schedule! Here are some definite activities that we will fit in the March5-9 slot:
-ALL THE BEACHES!
We are active young people who enjoy hiking, snorkeling, sightseeing but also do absolutely nothing!
-Do you guys think its a good idea to rent the conv. for our whole stay even if we don't use it some day? Considering the taxi ride from and to the airport if we only rent for 5 days?
-I would like to purchase a nice rash tee when we get there, what is a good spot in Wakiki? I would like a brand name one like (billabong, O'neil etc...yeah i am fussy).
-Don't want to offend anyone but we will not go to PCC, let's not get into that...
-ANY SUGGESTIONS OR INFORMATIONS ON HOW TO SAVE MONEY OR GO SEE HIDDEN GEMS WOULD BE APPRECIATED!!
-You can even fill out my 5-9 slots for me!
Thanks a bunch guys!
