We were thinking of going to Hawaii towards the end of the year, as a stopover between LA and New Zealand. But, as far as I could tell, public transport wasn't too great. Not sure if I got this right, and if you plan on having a car, I guess it's not a problem. But this put me off.

Plus, cost of living is way cheaper in Fiji, so we've decided to go there for a week instead!

What do you have planned while you're there? You should totally hit some trails and do some hiking, and see the heart of the islands!

My mother-in-law lived there for the best part of a year, and got around Honolulu by public transit no problem. Traffic in Honolulu is heinous, but driving is a good way to get around the rest of the island. We've only had short trips there, and only to Oahu, so that's all I can relate, but a friend of mine who lived there for several years loved taking the inter-island hops and even kayaked between some of the islands - I don't know which. That sounded like quite a unique adventure...

It is pretty expensive there, though.
