Planning a trip to Hawaii ??? Few tips

If you have read my post on "First year of marriage..do's and dont's", I have mentioned that you should travel as much as you can during the first few years of marriage.We tried our best and one of our most unforgettable trip is the trip to Hawaii. This travel plan outline was composed by one of our best  friend who visited Hawaii before us and I modified it a bit to make it a better.Since I have been asked several times about what all we did in Hawaii I have it compiled here for you in this post.We also booked some tickets from this website Hawaii Activities. Do check it out , they have some nice deals posted then and there.
We did a 13 day trip to Hawaii covering three main Islands Oahu,Big Island and Maui.We went there in October and the weather was good during that time.This is the itenary we followed.
Day 1: We landed in Honolulu.Just went to Waikiki beach and walked around the International Market place.
Day 2:We drove to the below places in order.
          *We started very early and hiked the Diamond Head State Monument(about 2 -2.5 hr hike) . This is open 6 am to 6 pm and last entrance to hike is at 4:30 pm.Visit website for more details (http://www.hawaiistateparks.org/parks/oahu/Index.cfm?park_id=15).
           *Pali Lookout which is a scenic overview
           * Byodo-In  a Japanese temple it is a very beautiful serene place dont miss this .Visit this website for more information (http://www.byodo-in.com/)
           *USS Arizona Memorial (Pearl Harbor)  last tour to this place is at 3 pm you have to be there before that.Visit this website  (http://www.nps.gov/valr/index.htm) for more details.
           *Dole Plantation (World's largest  garden maze) we really enjoyed watching pineapple farms and took the tour.Visit this website for more details(http://www.dole-plantation.com/)
Day 3: We went to Polynesian cultural center where they  explain about the culture of different islands in and around Hawaii. A must see as we enjoyed every bit of it and then we had the Luau (Hawaii feast there).This takes one full day.Visit this website for more details (http://www.polynesia.com/)
Day4 :We went to Hanuama Bay for snorkeling . Visit this website for maore details (https://www1.honolulu.gov/parks/facility/hanaumabay/information.htm).We enjoyed every bit here especially the snorkeling and then we had our flight the next day morning to Big Island.
