Inside the front cover is a full-color map of the Hawaiian Islands, with an inset of Honolulu. Inside the back cover is a huge foldout map of Hawaii. And between the two are more than 600 pages of data and advice that will allow you to explore Hawaii on a very reasonable budget.
The reassuringly titled chapter "Planning an Affordable Trip to Hawaii" helps travelers decide where and when to go, how to avoid sunburns, and how to avoid getting burnt by rip-offs, too. There are pointers on cyberdeals, package deals, and other assorted money-saving tips. The authors also provide thumbnail descriptions of the various islands, which include the Frommer's "Best Of" lists, aiding your selection with round-ups of the top beaches, camping, family accommodations, adventures, cultural experiences, and low-cost destinations.
Once you've made your major decisions, the island-specific chapters provide the details, with reasonably priced accommodations, dining, beaches, nature hikes, tours, camping, shopping, and nightlife. There's also an appendix on Hawaiian history and food, culture, language, and flora and fauna. Jeanette Foster and Jocelyn Fujii, both residents of Hawaii, make a trip to Hawaii more focused and more affordable than you might have thought possible, and thus more likely to actually occur. --Stephanie GoldAbout the Author:
