Everyone knows some of the great things to do in Hawaii…but what about the things NOT TO DO in HAWAII? Yeah…there are plenty of shitty things not to do while in Hawaii…may it be while on vacation or if you live here…there are somethings you can avoid and others you should just forget about doing all together. We give you guys a good list of things to NOT do while here, why you shouldn’t and what to watch out for while in HAWAII…We even did some Blog searching and found some NOT SO SERIOUS and FUNNY posts on what to NOT DO from a few HAWAIIANS and LOCALS that will be sure to make you laugh as we did…This will be a serious, yet funny show… so sit back, relax, have fun and enjoy this Podcast!
Don’t spend all your time in Waikiki or at your resort…
Don’t lay in the sun all day to get a quick tan or any day while in Hawaii.
Don’t Forget to TIP!
Don’t take a Bus Tour.
While on Oahu don’t go to places like Sealife Park, the Dole Plantation Store or The Polynesian Cultural Center.
Don’t leave anything of value in your Car Rental.
Don’t Approach or touch Hawaiian Monk Seals and Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles called Honu.
Don’t make a choice that can risk your life that you saw in a book, blog or video for a cheap thrill.
Don’t try to speak Pidgin…ever.
Don’t take Volcanic Lava Rocks from the islands, Don’t pile Rocks and don’t write your names on volcanic rocks with white coral…this means actually writing with them and placing them in the shape of your name.
Don’t forget to Take your shoes off indoors.
There are countless more we shouldn’t do when we come to Hawaii like: Don’t make a choice that can risk your life that you saw in a book, blog or video for a cheap thrill. Don’t forget to be courteous to other drivers while on the roads here. Please let others through in traffic and if someone lets you through always give them the Shaka/Hang Loose sign out the window. Do not go in the ocean if you see signs or flags telling you not to and never turn your back on it…it’s best to be safe here in Hawaii as our ocean is the most dangerous place to be. Don’t think it’s safe to cross the streets here in Hawaii, our cross walks are not the safest and jay walking has gotten many killed here in Hawaii…don’t be a statistic…Do not get too close to the Coral, touch or walk on it…it is a living breathing being like you and me. Do not leave trash or litter anywhere when you go on a hike…always take out what you took in and if you find some trash on the trail do your part, your kuleana as we say in Hawaii and pick up any trash you find…Be one wit the aina…Hawaii and her mana will be with you if you do this the rest of your trip. Don’t tell locals how it’s done on the mainland…We don’t give a shit how it’s done back there…this is Hawaii. Don’t come to Hawaii without understanding the basics of Hawaiian words and cultural history. Don’t call Locals “NATIVES or HAWAIIANS” only KANAKA MAOLI are Native Hawaiians and they hold a high PRIDE LEVEL. Don’t try to fit in if you just moved here or are on vacation, be yourself. Don’t come to Hawaii thinking you own the place, always be humble. Lucky We Live Hawaii wanted to give you all an awakening when it comes to Hawaii…We Americans are well aware Hawaii is the 50th State, but the Hawaiians (Kanaka Maoli) who had their land stolen and their culture all but destroyed don’t believe the same things we do…for the locals born here in Hawaii they are in the middle and for those who moved here and live here we see both sides, not just the American side to the matter we see the plight of these islands in the middle of the pacific. So when coming to Hawaii, visiting or living here…remember…Respect and a little humble pie goes a long way here in Hawaii…it’s ALOHA, it’s our KULEANA…so please carry and bring it with you wherever you are or may go.
