Sunshine and comfort, Polynesian heritage and modern American lifestyle, together go hand in hand on this beautiful Hawaiian island. If you are one of those who could never decide whether you're more inclined towards sand and water or hilltops, you might have found your next destination as this lush island retreat has it all.
Maui, the second largest of the Hawaiian islands is a popular tourist destination, mostly among North Americans. Its called the 'Valley isle' as it sits between the east and the west volcano, which shape this majestic island. It is home to 150000 people, and soon you would want to be one them. Popularly known to be the lazy laidback beach town majorly due to the water sports and other activities wearing people out, you cant get enough of this island. From dramatic volcano slopes to magnificent pacific views, Maui serves as the best combination of 'thrill and chill'. From hiking expeditions to camping at 10000 ft. above sea level under the stars, its best of both the worlds that will urge a traveller like you to take the plunge, pack your bags and head to one of the most serene islands on this planet. One of the best ways to experience Maui is the return journey from Kahului (Lao Valley, central Maui), where the airport is located and where most of the tourists stay, on the Hana highway. 600 turns, driving along the coastline of this massive island and splendid weather forces you to continue this journey. The sunrise at Haleakala Volcano Summit, the world's largest dormant volcano peak is once in a lifetime experience. Bonus if you go paragliding here. Exquisite cuisine along with warmth of the people make you feel home in a couple of hours of your stay on this beautiful island. In addition to this, Snorkelling in the day and Cocktail cruise in the evening is the pride of Maui. It is a dream package, ideal for splurgers as well as budget travellers.
