Hawaii is one of those destinations that many dream of visiting but never do because it can be so far away from just about anywhere else. It can be pricey just flying round trip to Hawaii, so it just sits there in the I hope to go there one day wish list of travel places.
But if you are one of those people pondering the idea of planning a round the world (RTW) trip, then you may be able to add Hawaii to the itinerary for cheaper than you may think.
If you have looked into things like round the world plane tickets, then you may just be able to add Honolulu into your trip, and it could be much cheaper than just coming to Hawaii on your own. Or you could check into stopovers, which allow you to add a destination to your round the world ticket for free or very little money. Check with each company you are shopping to see what they offer.
If you do decide to add Honolulu to your RTW itinerary, then you will have plenty to do. While some suggest getting in and out of Honolulu, there are plenty of things to do here. Some come to Hawaii to get away from the hustle and bustle of regular life, but others actually enjoy big, bustling cities (I am one them). If this is you, then Honolulu is just as big and bustling as other major metropolitan cities. The difference is that you also have stunning beaches, nearby volcanoes, and plenty of outdoor activities. And don’t get me started on the food.
If Hawaii is on your radar as a travel destination and you are planning a trip around the world, then look into your options for adding it to your itinerary. You may be able to kill two birds with one stone, and Hawaii would be a great addition to the beginning or end of your big trip.
