Traditional Leis as Gifts
It is customary to greet new visitors with a lei of some kind (flowers, shells).
Hyatt Regency gave us a flower lei made from white orchids when we arrived at the hotel. What a beautiful gesture.
We saw some of our fellow travelers greeted at the airport by their transproation service and were given leis. This is only done if you have this coordinated in advance with your transportation service.
However, you can bring back leis to your family and friends..we brought back silk flower and shell leis for our family, friends and co-workers. It was pretty cheap at the local souvenir shops. I think it was a dollar or less for each lei.
This is a custom most common to Hawaiins and it is a great show to see.
Beautiful costumes from their culture.
Life is Hawaii is truly much slower and less hectic than most places. Do not be in a hurry and do not expect others to hurry for you. Slow down, be patient, and experience the aloha!
The ukelele is the most recognized instrument when someone thinks of Hawaiian music. Here's a local singing Hawaiian folk songs and playing a ukelele at Gaylord's Restaurant outside of Lihue, Kaua'i.
