National Geographic : 1928 Apr
Spend an unforgettable vacation in the world's new island playground The lights go out. From the shadow of the big banyan tree come the quickening strains of an ancient Hawaiian hula-chant. A dancingfigure glides into the warm Hawaiian moonlight. The hula olapa-the legendary "hula of the planting of the taro" -is beginning. And you are in a hushed audience at a great hotel spellbound by the exotic beauty of moonlight filtering through the palm fronds, the music of strange instruments and soft lilting voices, the rhythmic whisper of warm surf on the coral sands of Waikiki. TONIGHT the world seems far away - yet in no more time than it takes to cross the Atlantic you found these fairy islands of Hawaii! TOMORROW MORNING you'll look out upon a painted ocean of violet, indigo, emerald, jade. Go down to breakfast and a soft-footed Oriental waiterwill bring aluscious melon that grew in a tree, or a slice of pineapple only a few hours from the field. You're ready for two long weeks, or more, in the world's new island playground, where the thermometer stays below 850 in summer, above 650 in "winter." Brilliant with Interests! EVERY DAY BEGINS a new adven ture-surfboarding and outrigger canoeing at Waikiki; golf on one of a dozen scenic courses; motor drives; treasure-hunting for teak and brass and tapa-clothin the Ori ental bazaars; impromptu luaus, where one eats poi Hawaiian style, and strange-named fish baked in leaves.Teas and dances in perfectly appointed hotels. Spectacular deep sea fishing for giant sword-fish, tuna and ulua. Trips to the volcanic Hawaii U. S. National Park, and the gem-like islands of Maui and Kauai, where waterfalls tumble down velvet-green cliffsides. *$400 to $500 will cover all ex penses of a month's trip direct from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle or Vancouver, B. C., in cluding first-class round trip steam er fare, 2000 miles each way, the finest hotels, and inter-island cruis ing.
