Yesterday, the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau launched the brand-new GoHawaii app. If you’re looking for your go-to app for planning your Hawaii vacation, this is the one to get! It’s available on the App Store for iOS devices, as well as on Google Play for Android. No matter how you connect—GoHawaii is available for all your vacation-planning needs!
There are two main sections of the app: “Islands” and “Travel Smart.”
In the “Islands” section, you’ll get an overview of each of the six main Hawaiian Islands to which you may be traveling: O’ahu, Kaua’I, Moloka’I, Lana’I, Maui, and the Big Island of Hawai’i. Tapping on each will take you to an overview of the island, including the main points of interest, as well as a slideshow of photos. From there, you can check out Sites & Attractions, Events, Travel Tips, and Weather for each island. You’ll also find a list of helpful phone numbers to keep handy when visiting each island—like the airport, hospital, and visitors’ bureau!
In the “Travel Smart” section, you’ll find interactive pages with tips to stay safe and secure while visiting. You can interact with fun, illustrated scenes that highlight Water Safety, Disaster Preparedness, Marine Protection, and more. It’s a great idea to check out each scene, and prepare yourself for any eventuality while visiting Hawaii! You can also add particularly helpful tips to “My List,” that you can access later at any time.
The app also has a comprehensive list of helpful links, that you can refer to before, during, and after your travels to Hawaii. Finally, find a section called “Locomoji,” where you can share Hawaii-themed emoji with your family and friends—or even download the “Locomoji” keyboard so you can always express yourself Hawaii-style! Need to send a shaka, a poke bowl, or even a lei? Now you can, thanks to “Locomoji!”
This feature-rich app is free to download, and can be a valuable part of your vacation plans!
