    Hike the rain forests overlooking Waikiki

    by canela420 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The guide was soliciting his tour, Hawaii Rainforest Foundation, at the top of Diamond Head. The flyer mentioned that it was a 3 hour tour that included transfers to a rain forest where one can view waterfalls and petroglyphs. The flyer also mentions that 'transportation and guided hike are provided complimentary, and that there is no obligation'.

    However, at the end of the tour, the guide said that he would need to collect $20 per person. I don't mind paying for a tour, as long as I know that I'm paying in advance.

    The tour was about 30 passengers, when really it should be only half that because with so many people on the trail, it becomes difficult to hear the guide's commentary.

    If you have a rental car, I recommend getting to the rain forests on your own.

    War Memorial

    This isn't a tourist destination as such but it's still a place that one should visit. Dedicated to the solider from Pearl Harbour and onward. This cemetary is tranquile and serene with it fountains, columns of trees and rows after rows of white head stones.
