Dream Itinerary | Maui, Hawaii

There are many, many places I'd like to travel to in this world and the list is just endless. Isaac has already been very lucky and has visited Hong Kong, Macau, Bali, Japan, Vietnam and Italy in his tender 2.5 years. Watching him see new things and soak up new cultures gives me immense happiness and contentment, and I hope to always use travel to inspire and educate him.

As we plan our family holiday destinations nowadays, we realised we've spent lots of time in Asia but not enough of the Americas. One of our dream destinations is to head to Hawaii to see the paradise island for ourselves! Hawaii is huge, with many islands to choose from for a holiday but our first choice would have to be Maui. Maui is the magical island of Hawaii and perfect for nature lovers. Here's what we would do if we had a week in Maui, Hawaii.

Pick A Resort Hotel
Prior to having a kid, I didn't really believe in it but now, I am definitely all for it! Resorts are always a comfortable stay with plenty to entertain children with whilst not needing to venture out on lazy days.

Kaanapali Sunset Luau Feast
It doesn't get more tropical or more Hawaiian that a luau, a traditional Hawaiian party/feast with lots of traditional dancing. The Sheraton offers a 3 hour sunset feast on the beachfront, and you can expect tale telling of the Princess Kalua and a fire and knife show too.

Maluaka Beach 
Known as turtle town, Maluaka beach is the place to spot Hawaiian sea turtles. Anything to do with sea animals is sure to be a hit with Isaac.

The Tropical Express at Maui Tropical Plantation
For a train mad little boy, riding an express train through Hawaii's tropical plantation means lots of fun whilst seeing local life. It's a 45 minute tour that loops around the lagoon and plantation looking at all the different fruits, including a stop by a tiki hut for a coconut husking demo

Honolua Bay
Best known for snorkelling, but not so practical with a young child, the views of Honolua Bay are worth it alone for a hike and a picnic.

Maui Ocean Centre
One of the top 10 aquariums in the world, Maui Ocean centre features more than 60 interactive exhibits including the turtle lagoon. There's also sea jellies, tropical reefs and octopuses to be seen.

Hawaii Food Grindz
Grindz, the local slang for eats, are found at simple counter service spots and roadside stalls, and are some of the island's best and most beloved. Da Kitchen in Maui features many ethnic foods, such as the fried spam musubis, kalua pork sandwich and the Hawaiian plate.

So how does Maui sound for a magical Island? For those without young children, there's also sugar plantations, rainforests, snorkelling, diving and hiking the Haleakala National Park to add to the list!
