Hawaii Guidebooks
GLAD Travel highly recommends a good guidebook while in Hawaii. A good guidebook can save you money, add to your understanding of the culture, create opportunities for activities & adventure that you didn't previously know about, and be your own personal tour guide (without paying for a much more expensive human tour guide). We've personally reviewed the most popular Hawaii guidebooks and offered our recommendations below.

Oahu Revealed Just Oahu - all budgets; geared toward the adventurous - full of information & pictures. Lovely & comically written, you won't be disappointed with this guidebook - be aware that some locals protest the exposure of supposed 'private areas.'
