My essay is about the 50th state of the USA, about Hawaii. When people hear about Hawaii, they imagine it as a very exotic place. But it’s quite difficult to find someone who have visited these islands. Journey to Hawaii is long and boring. You have to fly to New York with over-landing in Helsinki, then fly to LA, where you have to stay over night. Next day is one more flight ahead, from LA to Honolulu, capital of Hawaii. After five hours of flying above ocean, captain of airplane says that you’ll be landing in few minutes. During landing, you can see Pearl Harbor on the left side. After landing you realize that you are in paradise. Airport doesn’t have any windows, because of hot weather. After getting off the airplane, you’ll get flower necklace, typical for Hawaii.
Hawaii is completely different not only from Europe, but also from US main land. The 1,500 mile-long Hawaiian chain consists of 132 islands, reefs, and shoals. The eight largest, with which most people are familiar, are at the southeastern end. Island of Oahu is second smallest of the four major islands in geographical size. Hawaii has over one million inhabitants. Surprisingly, tree fourths of the state’s population lives on Oahu. Honolulu, Capital of Hawaii, is also located on this island. Most people live in Honolulu and Pearl City with famous Pearl Harbor. Pearl Harbor is one of the greatest attraction on Oahu. You can visit museum of Pearl Harbor and Arizona Memorial. It’s possible to see ships, which were destroyed in Battle of Pearl Harbor on December 7th 1941. Everybody, who goes to Hawaii, wants to visit Waikiki, one of the most famous beaches in the world. When I saw it, I couldn’t understand why it’s so popular. It’s quite small beach with plenty of people on it. Only advantage of Waikiki beach is hot water without waves. Temperature of water in summer is approximately 30 °C. It’s also great place for surfers, because, there are about half an meter high waves 100 meter far away from shore.
Behind Waikiki beach you find Kalakaua avenue, one kilometer long street with many malls, shops, banks and fast foods. It’s not only tourist center of Hawaii, but also center of night life with many bars, restaurants, pubs and discos. At 10 p.m., this street is as busy as Venceslav square at 3 p.m.
