Honolulu, Oahu

— 3 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lanikai Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Appreciate the collections at USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Koko Crater Railway Trail, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, hike along Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, and look for gifts at Waikiki Christmas Stores.

Raipur, India to Honolulu is an approximately 31-hour flight. The time zone changes from India Standard Time (IST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -15.5 hour difference. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in September, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can catch the flight to Lahaina.

Lahaina, Maui

— 2 nights

Crown Jewel of Maui

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
On the 8th (Wed), tour the pleasant surroundings at Napili Beach, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, and then fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour. Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sand and surf at Wailea Beach, then kick back and relax at Makena Beach, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Ho'okipa Beach Park.

To find more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Lahaina route site.

Traveling by flight from Honolulu to Lahaina takes 2.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in September, and nighttime lows around 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Thu) so you can travel back home.

Hawaii travel guide

4.4
The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
