Air Asia X will be launching direct flights between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Honolulu, Hawaii starting June 28, 2017. The flight will go via a two-hour stopover in Osaka, Japan. Hawaii is in the Pacific Ocean and is about 11,000 km from KL, as the crow flies.

The Hawaiian Islands are an archipelago of eight major islands, several atolls and numerous smaller islets. Hawaii is a state of the US and you will need a visa.

Once you land in Honolulu in Oahu Island, you can island hop to other islands. For the purpose of listing accommodation options, I will categorise them as Oahu, Maui and Kauai. I will also include the Big Island of Hawaii.

What do we Malaysians know about Hawaii except from watching the original Hawaii-Five-O TV series in the 1970s when the highlight was watching Steve McGarrett (uttering the now classic catchphrase) “Book em, Danno!” at the end of each episode?

Who, who saw the original series can forget dour faced Asian detective Chin Ho played by Kam Fong Chun?

For the purpose of the upcoming hotel compilation, I contacted my Hawaiian Instagram friends such as (@hello_achi) or Love C. The seasoned adventurer sent me some pics to use too. I like this turtle pic she captured (used with her permission) of a turtle swimming in the crystal clear blue ocean of Maui.

Other Hawaiians friends like Susan (@susansusan808) and Rick Lui (@happyrickthunder) have not responded at the time of posting this preview. I will add their suggestions, if they come.

The hotel page is still work in progress and I will announce it when it is ready. Meanwhile you can search for Hawaiian hotels or a hotel at anywhere in the world, here:
