Hawaii Day 8: We Say Goodbye to Big Island and Hello to Maui

Today, it’s a mix feelings. I feel sad to leave Big Island and excited at the same time to go to Maui. I wish we had more time in Big Island. We didn’t get a chance to visit a Kona coffee farm, macadamia nut factory and visit Hilo one more time. We didn’t go to the Mauna Kea stargazing since kid must be at least 16 yrs. old. But it’s alright, we all had fun and we don’t have to miss anyone everywhere we go and that’s the most important to me.

Some random pictures from Waikoloa to Kailua Kona.





Before heading to the airport, my husband wanted to try The Fish Hopper for lunch. When we arrived at Big Island, we went to Kailua Village and he saw this ocean view restaurant.

According to their menu, this is an award winning one. If you had clam chowder in Seattle or in New England, this is no award winning at all but it’s edible.

The presentation is good but food is no good.

In the airport. We are going to an inter-island fight, we didn’t expect that we are riding this small plane. It has a total of 11 seats. We did inter island flight before from Kauai to Oahu but it wasn’t this small. What’s interesting, there’s no TSA check so you could bring liquids.

Pictures from the plane.




Once we landed to Maui, my kid said he was hungry so I yelped and found Da Kitchen Restaurant.

Fried Musubi. I think this is what they are famous for. We all liked it.

Fish and chips were oily and shumai is a little different but it’s okay.

Time to go to the resort, Wailea Grand Champion Villas.




It has 1 bed and 2 baths and it got washer and dryer in the balcony.
