Hawaii is part of the United States, so you won’t get a real cool stamp in your passport.
Hawaii’s prices are very inflated.
Meals and beverages are usually not included in Hawaii resorts’ nightly rates.
Most of the upscale Hawaii resorts are large which lack in privacy. The Hawaiian beaches are crowded and tourist traps are everywhere. Fiji is like Hawaii was 70 years ago. Hawaii has grown into a metropolis with high rise accommodations and over populated beaches, traffic jams and air pollution. Even the outer islands have “tourist traps” coaxing you to man made attractions. Fiji relies on its natural beauty and friendly natives to entice travelers to stop and discover what a South Pacific island used to be like.
