Your Hawaii Vacation – What Do I Pack to Go to Hawaii?

Packing Your Bags for hawaii travel tour (ハワイ旅行)

With airlines now ハワイ旅行 for a second–or in some cases even for the first–piece of luggage, and strict “50 pounds per piece of hawaii travel tour (ハワイ旅行)” weight limits being enforced, the thrifty traveler is forced to plan ahead wisely to avoid racking-up expensive luggage fees. I used to travel by the motto “Don’t check your baggage unless you can afford to lose it; if you can afford to loose it, don’t bring it”, thus I never traveled anywhere with anything more than my carry-on. While it is always good to travel as lightly as possible, with the advent of stringent new carry-on limits and my advancing hawaii travel tour (ハワイ旅行) (and concomitant increasing desire to travel in comfort) I have learned to travel with only one piece of checked baggage plus my carry-on. The key is packing smart so you can pack less.

Be Smart About Your Carry On Baggage: Most airlines allow you to bring one carry-on bag and a personal item such as a purse or a lap-top. I push this a little by bringing a carry-on bag plus my lap-top in a computer pack which also has room for one video camera, my SLR Camera and an emergency change of hawaii travel tour(ハワイ旅行 格安) (in case all my other luggage is lost). Usually they let me get away with this. Because I trust neither baggage handlers nor TSA inspectors and my luggage has been lost more times than I remember, I pack my other video camera and the majority of my clothes in my other carry on bag so they don’t have to be checked. In this bag I also carry a quart of water (purchased at the airport, after security inspection) and some snacks.

You’ll want at least one book to read on the flight; your tickets, reservation confirmations, travelers checks, list of phone hawaii travel tour(ハワイ旅行 格安) , spare glasses and medications should be put in a water-proof bag in the carry-on bag you intend to hold most tightly to.Remember that more books, extra batteries, memory cards, video tape or film for your cameras can be purchased at Wal-Mart hawaii travel tour(ハワイ旅行 安い) Costco on-island almost as cheaply as on the mainland and it isn’t necessary to fill your luggage up with extras. If you do pack film, and it is in your carry-on, be sure to protect it against x-rays.

Plan for Your Activities: You may be planning on indulging in some particular activities while in Hawaii that require specific gear or clothing–it is best to think this through thoroughly when packing. If you are going hawaii travel tour(ハワイ旅行 安い) , many people intend to save money by bringing their own gear. This is false economy if it causes you to pay for an extra piece of luggage on the plane.


Buying snorkel gear on the island is fairly inexpensive and renting it is fast, easy and even cheaper. The same can be said of renting diving gear and golf clubs. Activities such as hiking and horseback riding require a fairly specific wardrobe, but if you plan correctly, you only have to bring your hiking/riding hawaii travel tour(ハワイ旅行 安い) and an extra pair of pants and shirt suitable to the activity. If you plan on visiting the mountain summits, remember that they can be quite cold–even snowy or rainy–so plan and pack accordingly. If you bring boots, I advise wearing them on the plane to save room and weight in your bags. As for photography gear or musical hawaii travel tour (ハワイ旅行) –any expensive or delicate equipment for that matter–my philosophy is to never turn loose with it. Never check your cameras, your guitar, your laptop, etc–it’s a recipe for loss.

Plan for the Weather: Being tropical, temperatures at sea level in Hawaii vary only by about 10 degrees between day and night ハワイ旅行 安い throughout the year. It’s hot during the day, plan a cool wardrobe. The windward side is generally rainy and the “up-country” towns (mountains) frequently can experience afternoon showers. Evenings, particularly up-country, are delightfully cool as there is generally an hawaii travel tour (ハワイ旅行) or onshore breeze. With forethought, your wardrobe can cover all these situations without being bulky, heavy or ornate.
