20 Maui has long held a reputation for the famous Maui-Wowie marijuana. But did you know it also has a reputation for plenty of fake Maui-Wowie. It's true. Some reports say that more than 80% of all marijuana sold to visitors on Maui is made from random dried plant material. And don't forget, it's still illegal in Hawaii! If you're coming to Hawaii for the first time, this list will be important. But even if you've been here before (or live here) it might be worth it to check them out. DO... Reserve time to relax and do nothing. Tip the locals, they really appreciate it. Smile and laugh, you're on vacation. Use the word "Aloha", it feels good. Take your shoes off when entering homes. Try the fresh fish, poke, and plate lunches. Slow down, things are on Hawaii time here. Get some sun, and swim in the ocean. DON'T... Forget sunscreen. Even so, don't overdo it. Honk. It's rude here unless it's an emergency. Approach monk seals or turtles, it's illegal. Swim or hike alone, it's simply not safe. Ask us what kind of currency we use here. Spend a lot of time on your phone or laptop. Take home rocks or sand, it's bad luck. Leave valuables in your car. Most of all just remember to relax & enjoy! What's the best time to travel to Maui?

Is it better to stay in Kihei or on the Lahaina side? Derek West–Santa Barbara, CA Kihei is the drier side of the island with lots of small strip malls, restaurants and beach areas. It's also close to golfing and the upscale mall in Wailea. You're a bit closer to the airport, Haleakala & Hana too. e West Side offers Front Street and Lahaina (lots of dining & shopping), an upscale mall in Kaanapali, and is a bit cooler. It also features two golf courses and surfing at Honolua Bay, north of Lahaina. Q & A From Me to You EDITOR'S DESK Mowie Wowie SHAMS & SCAMS DO'S & DON'TS When on Maui... << ACTIVITIES
