Hawaii is made up of a group of beautiful, tropical islands and atolls, which are situated approx 2,400 miles off the US mainland. There are 8 main islands in the Hawaii state, only six of which allow visitors, and one of which is not inhabited at all, and the capital Honolulu sits one of the largest and most commercialized islands, Oahu. Oahu has a large number of top resorts, and miles of beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal clear tropical waters, and also has two large mountain ranges, the Waianae and Koolau. Hawaii’s economy is mainly fueled by tourism (it is one of the top 10 holiday destinations in the world), but the islands also produce diverse agriculture crops of tropical flowers, macadamia, pineapple, sugarcane and coffee, and there is also manganese nodule mining in the mountains and film and television production across the islands and surrounding waters.


How to Accept Cultures on Their Own Terms

If you want to travel abroad, it is crucial to learn to accept cultures on their own terms.

It can be all too easy to find yourself in a strange situation and begin reminiscing about home and the “normal” way of doing things, but this greatly detracts from your enjoyment of the foreign culture you’re being exposed to! The situations you find yourself in will often be awkward or downright strange, and occasionally challenge your own morals and beliefs.

Instead of reacting with defensiveness or hostility and thinking about “how strange people are here”, remember that your own culture isn’t perfect, either! This is called “seeing the strange in the familiar”. For someone growing up in another culture, being exposed to North American or European ways of life would seem totally strange, awkward, or even morally wrong.

With its great shopping malls, delicious hawker delicacies and, my favorite favorite, Night Safari Zoo, you can name a thousand and one reasons to visit the beautiful city state whenever you drop by South-East Asia. Now, with the news that Singapore’s very own Marina Bay Sands Resort and Casino has hired six of the world’s more talented chefs to head its dining outlets, there are even more reasons to plan your trip to Singapore when the resort opens next year. With chefs like Daniel Boulud – whose restaurant was awarded no less than 3 prestigious Michelin stars – as well as 2 American chefs namely Mario Batali (based in New York) and Wolfgang Puck. They are quickly joined by other gourmet gurus such as Santi Santamaria, Guy Savoy and Tetsuya Wakuda.
