What to Pack

Even though Hawai`i only has two seasons, we recommended that you bring a variety of clothing. This includes casual clothes, swim clothes for going to the beach or pools, and formal wear or business wear. Appropriate footwear should also be packed. Many people in Hawai`i wear flip-flops, or what we call “rubber slippers.” However, you will likely go on hikes or to events that will require close-toed shoes so bring these as well. Also, don’t forget a pair of formal shoes to go with your formal or business attire. You can lighten your suitcase load by choosing to purchase some clothes when you arrive in Hawai`i. However, U.S. sizes may fit differently than your home country and may cost more.
