Id have to double check since I'm looking Chicago but I think it's roughly the same
i will work on my current venture until it’s a success or I’m bankrupt.
we can prefer the former while also understanding people who want to do the latter.
Japan is one of the cheapest first world countries. Just don't try to buy real estate in Tokyo and your wallet will be fine.
What kind of cunty comments would you have for someone who rents a nice place on a beach in Mexico for 2-3 weeks with no plans aside from doing resort-like activities without the resort (e.g., sleeping, eating, working, a bit of surfing, etc.)?
If Chili's was a vacation
You could have gone to Hilton Head instead
no passport, no language issues, and help the US economy
Ive traveled a lot of places but I've never been to Hawaii, I tried searching the thread but its a lot of info to go through for a simple question.
Whats your favorite island? I like nature, scuba diving, swimming in the ocean, a good beach, and wouldn't mind a little surfing. Aiming for Late March early April.
I'm thinking a combo of the big island and Kauai, only reason I wasn't going Kauai full time was it seemed pretty expensive.
I love Kauai just bc there ain’t nothing to do but kick back and enjoy the beauty
I’ve only been to Kauai, but I understand it’s the least developed/most rural of everywhere. I fucking loved it.
If you like hiking, the awaawahuapui trail is silly beautiful.
Where did you stay?
3 nights in Waimea, 3 nights on the north side. Island is small enough to get around pretty easily.
There’s a ton of Hawaii info in here.
Ok, just bought 2 tickets to Kauai. Pretty good deal, direct for 2: $396.
Yea once I sorted on an island I was gonna search for it specifically, although I do still really want to do the night dive with manta rays in Kona.
We rented a house in Lihue but easy to drive anywhere, did some great hikes, waterfalls, kayaking........we would over to the Marriot also and use their pool
From where? That’s a good price
u live in San Jose ?
Saratoga at the moment. Born in Cupertino, bounced between San Luis Obispo and there most of my life besides college.
Cool I’m in West San Jose
i know oahu gets knocked but the 4 days we spent in a bungalow on the beach of the north shore was an incredible vacation of relaxing on the beach
plus the 3 days in waikiki because we're city folks at heart, hit diamond head, some of the beaches, etc was good too
I'm assuming you were being sarcastic with the boring comment then
For some reason it’s hip to poopoo Oahu. It’s an island that has world class beautiful beaches in a country setting, suburban setting, and a fully fledged, incredibly diverse city setting all within 45 minutes. It’s got the literal best surf on the planet, and amongst the most accessible and breathtaking hiking.
you can go from mountain top to rooftop club to surfing the waves where surfing was invented in 30 minutes. There’s nothing bad about Oahu.
not at all, i couldn’t do Kauai for 2-3 weeks......5-7 days and I’m good.............but boring isn’t a bad thing, as a parent during the pandemic with no family around to help I would love to bored for a bit at a resort it sounds amazing
We attempted this - I basically ruined the trip due to constantly taking calls and complaining about reception.
I lasted 3 days - but the place refunded us for the remaining days so was definitely pretty pumped about that.
What's the golf and food quality?
Hawaii is literally the only state I haven't been to so I know virtually nothing about the regions, etc.
my Mexican ass don’t know shit about golf lol so I won’t even try to bullshit u......food is a lot of fish tacos and stuff like that was good but I wouldn’t say u go there for that........the other area I been to was Honolulu and there was definitely more high end restaurants and stuff but food was fine but not like memorable part of the trip for me at least
Can't comment on the golf. The food is ok not great. Tons of fresh fruit, not much when it comes to fresh vegetables. The poke and all the macadamia nut desserts are the only things that really stand out as being excellent.
Pretty sure you can't do any short term rentals on the north shore anymore. All of that was cut
Found a new brekkie spot with bomb internet
Edit: and it was 55 pesos!!!
the asian food in oahu is incredible
as a big hub of travel from asia lots of restaurants from asia open up there, had the best bowl of udon in my life there, first experience with korean bbq, etc. plus plenty of local joints are crushing it, Senia, The Pig and the Lady/Piggy Smalls/etc restaurant group, on and on. hawaii isn't really a food trip in general, but you can do it well on oahu that isn't replicable on the other islands.
The poke bowls and fresh fish at Koloa Fish Market is phenomenal.
The pork fried rice at Anuenue Cafe was a delicious and filling breakfast.
Went to a couple other bbq places that were decent. Bunch of fresh fruit smoothies and coffees. Açaí bowls.
Maybe we were unlucky but I wasn't impressed with any of the food we had in Hawaii.
Some Poke bowls and food trucks on the NS were aight
North Shore had some killer food trucks, we ate at one thai place like 3 times in 5 days. Think it has a literal restaurant now.
If you can't find fantastic food in Waikiki and surrounding areas you just aren't looking (or don't like asian food).
I didn't say in Waikiki at all except for a day trip down there. North or South Shore of Kauai wasn't great either. Expensive and OK.
I'm probably comparing it to non-american where it's just absurdly cheap and much better.
yeah north shore is going to be more comparable to the other islands food, pretty forgettable but decent stuff, garlic shrimp/short ribs/etc.
I mean, you don’t go to Hawaii for affordability, right? Didn’t matter to me regardless as it was a trip with my parents
I grill my own tri tip at my beachfront condo rental on Maui while drinking mai tais by the gallon
Any recommendations for US cities to travel to for Thanksgiving? Did New Orleans in 2019 and would like to make it a tradition. Obviously if COVID is under control.
San Juan (it’ll be a state eventually)
Thanks. I’ll edit to only include the contiguous 48 states.
What are you looking for? Warmer weather? Activities? Outdoor stuff?
Going to Big Sur in a couple of weeks for the first time... any recs? Staying at Ventana (it's bookable with Hyatt points now FYI)
It's going to take longer than until next Thanksgiving for the New Orleans bar and restaurant scene to get remotely back to normal.
It's a shame - I'm from there and my last trip down was depressing.
