    Don't remove natural objects

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The traditional Hawaiians believe that every living thing has a life and a place of its own. Everything from a plant, stone, shell, sand, animal should be left without removing it from its natural home.

    As travelers we should learn to respect other cultures by obeying written and unwritten laws. Be an informed traveler and read about the places you are visiting and the traditions and cultures that make that location unique.

    Don't Take Home Lava Rocks

    by cjg1 Updated Jun 15, 2010

    Yes, you want a souvenir of your vacation but do not remove any lava rocks. As superstition goes; removal of the rocks angers the volcano goddess Pele and brings bad luck to the person. So just go buy a souvenir from ABC...

    "Take only pictures; leave only footprints." "Take only gifts you are given (like flower lei’s); and leave only with Aloha."
