The Lonely Planet Hawaii Travel Guide: It’s easy to see why Hawaii has become synonymous with paradise. Just look around at the sugary beaches, Technicolor coral reefs and volcanoes ready for adventure and cherished by local traditions.
Their promise: You can trust their travel information because Lonely Planet authors visit the places they write about, each and every edition. They never accept freebies for positive coverage, and you can rely on them to tell it like they see it
