Spend Less and See More in Hawaii

Are You Ready to Travel Smart?

If you'd like to get the most out of your dollar and your trip, this is the guide for you. I put a fresh spin on budget travel, showing you how to see the best for less and how to see it in a more authentic way-the way the locals do.

Instead of spending $300 a night for a chain hotel, why not stay at the Wabi-Sabi House on Maui where you can sleep in an enclosed, tranquil treehouse for just $70 a night, or bed down in an oceanfront condo on Kauai for $105 a night?

On Oahu, eat a Hawaiian plate lunch at the Rainbow Drive-In for under $4, so you can splurge on dinner. Try Iron Chef champion Seiya Masahara's specialty-Japanese comfort food known as oden, a hotpot of dashi (broth) with long-simmered vegetables-at Hakkei.

Let me show you the "other" Hawaii-the one only insiders know about. Listen to slack-key guitar jam sessions on Oahu or volunteer to work with the Hawaii Wildlife Fund on Maui to help endangered sea turtles get a healthy start on life. These are only a few of the great ways to get closer to the culture of Hawaii. Read on for more!

Happy Travels,

Pauline Frommer

Budget Travel Redefined

I put a fresh spin on budget travel, showing you not only how to spend less in Hawaii, but how to see it in a more authentic way, without sacrificing comfort for savings.

  • Cozy, restful accommodations: Instead of spending $300 a night for a chain hotel, bed down in a Victorian mansion for $65 a night at Maureen's B&B on the Big Island (p. 351) or stay in a beachfront condo on Maui for $98 a night (p. 245).

  • Food finds: I'll take you to the best of the island's authentic Hawaiian restaurants and food stands and the places where up-and-coming chefs are making names for themselves.

  • Sights and attractions: Get in-depth coverage of Hawaii's iconic sights and the gems most visitors miss, plus the best in snorkeling, hiking, beachcombing, surfing, and more.

  • Insider's Hawaii: Drop in on slack-key guitar jam sessions on Oahu (p. 155) or volunteer for the Hawaii Wildlife Fund on Maui to help endangered sea turtles (p. 294).
