Lahaina, Maui

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Old Lahaina Courthouse and Whalers Village Museum. Visiting Parasailing & Paragliding and Kayaking & Canoeing will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Kula (Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery & Ali'i Kula Lavender Farm), Kihei (Kamaole Beach Park II & Kamaole Beach Park III) and Wailea Beach (in Wailea). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kapalua Beach, stroll through Ka'anapali Beach, stop by Pakaloha Bikinis, and identify plant and animal life at Honolua Bay.

For reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read Lahaina trip itinerary site.

Zurich, Switzerland to Lahaina is an approximately 25-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central European Standard Time (CET) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -11 hour difference. In November, Lahaina is much hotter than Zurich - with highs of 32°C and lows of 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Wed) so you can travel to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Kailua-Kona ©
Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Take a break from the city and head to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and Swim with Dolphins. Discover out-of-the-way places like Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay) and Kona Joe Coffee. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kailua-Kona: Captain Cook (Kealakekua Bay & The Captain Cook Monument). There's more to do: get interesting insight from Jack's Diving Locker and relax in the rural setting at Hula Daddy Kona Coffee.

Plan my day in Kailua-Kona using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Fly from Lahaina to Kailua-Kona in 4.5 hours. November in Kailua-Kona sees daily highs of 34°C and lows of 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to drive to Volcano.

nights
Volcano, Island of Hawaii

Volcano ©
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden and Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku). Visiting Kilauea Iki Trailhead and Holei Sea Arch will get you outdoors. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum and contemplate the geological forces at Kīlauea.

For where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, read Volcano journey site.

You can drive from Kailua-Kona to Volcano in 2.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Kailua-Kona in November since evenings lows in Volcano dip to 23°C. On the 27th (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get some cultural insight at USS Arizona Memorial and Battleship Missouri Memorial. Get in touch with nature at Diamond Head State Monument and Sunset Beach Park. Change things up with a short trip to Ko Olina Lagoons in Kapolei (about 36 minutes away). There's more to do: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

To see traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary planning tool.

Traveling by flight from Volcano to Honolulu takes 4.5 hours. In November in Honolulu, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 26°C at night. On the 1st (Fri), you're off to home.
