What travelers say about kimkim

Reviews from kimkim travelers who recently returned from their adventures

Make the most of your trip to Hawaii

Far from just the most exotic state of the U.S, Hawaii boasts a vibrant culture that is all its own. Its pristine white sand beaches, jungle covered hills, and active volcanoes make it the outdoor recreation destination of a lifetime.

When is the best time to visit?
Hawaii is a year-round destination, and the least expensive times to travel there are usually April, May, and September through October.

Where to go in Hawaii?
Each island has its unique flavor of Hawaiian beauty. Experience what big city life is like island style in Waikiki, hike through the Haleakalā National Park, visit lava up close and personal as it sizzles into the sea, or just relax on the beach and maybe even learn how to surf.

How many days do I need?
7 to 10 days will make for a great active (or relaxing) vacation in Hawaii, but it’s recommended that island hoppers spend at least 3 days at each one.
