Plan a Trip

By , May 6, 2010 5:50 am
If you have recently decided to take a vacation you should consider visiting the beautiful Maui which is located in Hawaii. Depending on what time of year you plan on traveling you can often get a cheap vacation package. You should shop around before settling on a specific vacation package. You should check out what kind of deals local travel agents can offer you before moving online. Normally you can get better rates by booking your entire trip together including hotel room, airfare, and even a car if you want one.
There are so many things to do in Maui that you will never spend a boring day. With that in mind you will want to research and plan before and above everything else. You donít want to land in Maui and exhaust yourself by running around the island trying to see everything in a short vacation. You cannot do or see everything with the limited amount of time so pick just a few must see or do events and let the rest happen.
Choose a specific area and explore it before venturing off into other areas. Normally the tourist action takes place on the West Shore (Kihei side) or along the North Shore (Lahaina side). There is a ton of popular hotels, 100s of condos, and several Beds & Breakfasts to choose from. The North Shore offers tons of shops, restaurants, galleries, and must see sights such as the old whaling ship. You can get a feel of the old Hawaiian culture here. On the West Shore you will see a ton of strip malls, condos, sandy white beaches and upscale hotels. This area is more modern and has more ritzy places to choose from but may also be more expensive.
While you may think that summer is when Maui is the busiest you will actually be surprised to learn that winter months such as September thru January is when tourist flock to the island. Summer or spring is a great time to travel to Maui as the weather is calm and if you are traveling with your family the beaches wonít be so crowded giving you more space to roam and explore. If you choose an off peak time of the year you will have better pricing for almost everything including hotels, restaurants, shopping for souvenirs, and tickets to shows. You will also be able to enjoy the best campgrounds, hiking trails, bike trails, and beaches without feeling overcrowded.
You should allow at least two days for sightseeing during your trip. There are so many beautiful things to see including the sun rising or setting, the natural surroundings, tons of beaches, and more. Normally you can get a list of the popular attractions or sights by doing a bit of searching online.
Pack lightly for your trip to Maui. The weather is almost always warm so pack for comfort. Informal clothing is worn almost everywhere so packing only casual clothes is perfect for when vacationing here. If you plan on attending any fancy events or eating a one of the upscale restaurants you may choose to wear a jacket and tie but itís not required.
The biggest thing you want to remember when planning your trip to Maui is to bring lots of film for your camera because you will want to capture the beauty and serenity that is offered here. You   will make memories that will last you a lifetime.
