Do's and Don't's in Hawaii

Here are some tips about things to do and things not to do if you want to fit right in when you're visiting Hawaii.

Do use "aloha" to say hello and goodbye., but say it in a normal tone of voice, not drawn out and emphasizing the last syllable like the tour operators do.

Do pull over periodically when you're driving around an island if cars are piling up behind you. You want to let the locals go by.

Do remove your shoes before entering a home

Do wear Aloha shirts and other Hawaiian print clothing.

If you are a couple, don't wearing matching Hawaiian print clothing.

Always wear sunscreen on your entire body, even on cloudy days.

Eat plate lunches like the locals

Wear rubber slippers like the locals

"Take nothing away and leave nothing"

Don't swim at sunset, because that's feeding time

Do show respect at Hawaiian cultural and archeological sites.

Don't wear bathing suits anywhere except the beach

Don't scream when you see a gecko.

Smile a lot and have fun!

Do hang something on the rear view mirror of your rental car or tie a ribbon on the antennae so you can easily recognize it.

Don't sleep on deserted beaches.

Don't ever turn your back on the ocean.

Don't Try to speak pidgin like the locals

Don't feed animals or fish in Hawaii

Don't leave valuables in your car or even in the trunk of your car.

Don't leave your wallet, purse, or other valuables on the beach when you swim.
