Hawaii is easily accessed from a wide range of growing locations, including the United States mainland, Australia, Japan, Korea and China. The islands are considered very safe. In Honolulu, visitors should simply take general precautions they would in any large city. For those traveling to the outer islands, it is important to check driving conditions on roads as many of the popular tourist attractions are located in remote areas. Understanding traffic and road signs as well as directions (GPS is highly recommended) is key – maps and key points of interest are always available from rental car companies and should be noted prior to setting out on your Hawaiian adventure.
