Have your camera ready and your batteries fully charged as every where you turn there is something beautiful to take a shot of!

Bring your umbrella everywhere when you are in Hawaii as it tends to rain a little bit most days in the afternoon.  This explains why they have a rainbow on their license plates.  You see them all the time!

The Polynesian Cultural Center know by the locals as the PPC is a very interesting.  It is a very educational and fun thing to do while on Oahu. A visit here is well worth it.  Plan to spend the whole day here.  There is an optional Luau and show in the evening.  It is also worth attending, if you budget allows.  The Entrance fee to the PCC is significant.

The facility is part of Brigham Young University.  Many of the people working and performing there are students.  The education you will get on your visit is not math or grammar it is all about the different Polynesian cultures.  It is presented in a very entertaining and interactive fashion.
