Ganesh Chaturthi.

This is a spectacular festival that honors the birth of the beloved Hindu the elephant headed god, the Lord Ganesha, which is popularly worshiped for his ability to remove obstacles and to bring good fortune. The festival is celebrated on the Late August or the early September, depending on the cycle of the moon. The festival always begins with the installation of the huge elaborately crafted statutes of the Ganesha in homes and in the podiums, which have been especially constructed and they are beautifully decorated


The Holi festival is celebrated to commemorate the victory of good over the evil, the burning brings it about, and the destruction of the demoness named the Holika. The festival is enabled through unwavering devotion to the Hindu god of the preservation, Lord Vishnu. The day after the full moon in March, each year is when the festival is celebrated. People spend the whole day smearing colored powder all over each other’s faces, throwing colored water at each other, having the parties, and dancing under water sprinklers.

Recomended Guide Books for Hawaii?

My family is just begining to plan for our first trip to Hawaii. We want couple of good guide books to help us plan everything. Where to stay, what to do, etc.

There are so many books out there, I was hoping someone would have a suggestion to help us.

Thanks in advance!

It depends on which island you're going to. This should help you get started:

when you get to the baggage claim area, or front airport lobbies, they have tons of Free brochures (some with discount coupons)! Taxi's are too expensive, look in one of the free brochure's for a round trip Shuttle service.

have fun and Aloooooooooooooooooooooha! :o)
p.s. our avatars look almost the same, lol

I'm planning on going for a week. (I am from Australia)

Use travel guides to estimate costs of activities.

Use travel sites to estimate costs for hotels, but you are better off booking through a hotel website and not a travel website. For example:

$50 per day (or part of a day) per person for meals.

Remember to budget for airport transfers and local transportation (ex. taxis).


Citizens of about 35 countries can travel to the USA for up to 90 days at a time as a tourist or for some business purposes by registering for ESTA > before < their trip begins. The…
