A Mixed Bag

"When you are packing your bags for Hawaii, you might want to see this first, even if it is a mixed bag. First the negatives: the voice quality of the narration and the script. On the other hand it does show the first time visitor places and things that aren't always shown on other disks. In fact as someone who's been going for over thirty years I saw a few things I've missed. So, considering the fact this is an inexpensive disk, I'd say go ahead and get it."
Spectacular photography and a great travel guide

"Excellent introduction to the Hawaiian Islands. Spectacular photography and interesting narrative. As a former resident of Hawaii, I feel this video gives a great look at the islands and makes me want to return very soon."
The perfect guide to plan a trip to Hawaii!

"I loved the beautiful scenes, music and narration in this video! It showed me Hawaii's top beaches, the most famous places to surf, the shopping and nightlife, stunning mountains that are over 2 miles high and even where Hawaii's king's ruled. A book only gives you a vague idea of what to see, but after watching this I know exactly where I want to go on each island. I'm using this travel guide to plan my first trip and I can't wait for this vacation of a lifetime!"

"I grew up on the east coast and hadn't been to Hawaii and didn't know what to expect. This video was an excellent way to see what Hawaii has to offer from its beautiful beaches to its explosive volcanoes and rich culture. And the range of the music is astonishing - it reflects the diverse cultures of Hawaii (over half are of Asian descent), including Japanese, Chinese, Filipinos, Polynesians, etc. In addition, Hawaii has amazing natural wonders from mountains to tropical rainforests, beaches and coral reefs and the music captures the moods for the landscapes. I counted almost 20 different songs and I tried to summarize some of the music below:
1 - Popular Hawaiian music with guitars and Ukuleles for the Hula, plus traditional Hawaiian chants.
2- Peaceful new age and avant-garde music to capture the mystical nature of sites like Iao Valley and Mt. Haleakala, which is over 10,000 feet high.
3- Rock n roll to reflect the excitement of surfing, swimming and sailing.
4- Tropical Latin music with Trumpets, Timbales and Brass captures Honolulu's exciting nightlife.
5- There is classical music with Flutes, Piccolos, and Harps, which reflects the majesty of underwater sea life including coral and beautiful fish.
6- And to mirror the diversity of Hawaiians, there is Polynesian music, country bluegrass with dueling banjos (surprise -- Hawaii has one of the largest cattle ranches in the USA), soul music, and even some swing music for nostalgia.
7- Pearl Harbor's music conveys a shocking anxious tone as it shows historical footage of the attack.
8- And there is supernatural music for the ancient Hawaiian sites, suspenseful music for the active volcanoes and tranquil music for beach scenes. The only way somebody wouldn't notice this diverse range of music would be that they didn't have their speakers on.
This video's beautiful photography and diverse music captures the heart and soul of Hawaii. And if you didn't enjoy watching it, then you might not enjoy a trip to paradise. This was a great way to plan a vacation and for only $10 - it's a steal - get it!"
