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).

Happy Travels,

Pauline Frommer

Winner of Best Guidebook, North American Travel Journalists Association

About the Author

A resident of the Big Island, Jeanette Foster has skied the slopes of Mauna Kea—during a Fourth of July ski meet, no less—and gone scuba diving with manta rays off the Kona Coast. A prolific writer widely published in travel, sports, and adventure magazines, she’s also a contributing editor to Hawaii magazine, the editor of Zagat’s Survey to Hawaii’s Top Restaurants, and the Hawaii chapter author of 1,000 Places to See in the U.S.A. and Canada Before You Die. In addition to writing this guide, Jeanette is the author of Frommer’s Maui; Frommer’s Kauai; Frommer’s Hawaii with Kids; Frommer’s Portable Big Island; Frommer’s Honolulu, Waikiki & Oahu; Frommer’s Maui & Lanai Day by Day; and Frommer’s Honolulu & Oahu Day by Day.

Pauline Frommer is the creator of the award winning Pauline Frommer’s Guides. Pauline Frommer’s London and Pauline Frommer’s New York City were named “Best Guidebook of the Year” (in 2006 and 2007 respectively) by the North American Travel Journalists Association. She is also a recipient of a Lowell Thomas Medal from the Society of American Travel Writers for her magazine work, and a Webby Peoples Voice award for her work as the first editor of Frommers.com. Every Sunday, she cohosts “The Travel Show” with her father Arthur Frommer, now heard on over 100 radio stations across the United States. On Wednesdays, she appears on CNNOnline to discuss the latest travel trends; you may also have seen her discussing travel on Today, The Early Show, Live with Regis and Kelly, The O’Reilly Factor, The CBS Evening News, CNN, FOX, and MSNBC. Pauline pens a bi-weekly column for MSN.com and contributed a chapter to the book The Experts Guide to Babies on traveling with children. She is married to physical therapist Mahlon Stewart and the proud mother of two very well traveled daughters, Veronice (age 9) and Beatrix (age 5).

Big Island–based journalist David Thompson grew up in Hawaii and writes about what goes on there for publications such as Honolulu Magazine and Hana Hou!, the in-flight magazine of Hawaiian Airlines.
