In Hawaiian the word malama means “to take care” and the word aina means “land.” When you’re in Hawaii, we ask that you practice this and pick up your trash; respect the marine life, plants, and animals; and avoid spots that are unsafe. Hawaii’s natural resources are precious, it’s up to all of us to help preserve these resources for generations by respecting the aina when you visit.
...Unless you want to do an Iolani Palace tour, which will cost $25 for an adult, $20 for teens and $10 for children. Click here to reserve if you're interested!
