Too many people try to squeeze Hana into half a day and end up feeling too rushed. Hana, is a place to escape from the rush, not add to it. If you’re planning a day trip to Hana, the best thing to do is simply block off an entire day, leave early (7 am at the latest), and just see where the journey takes you. Going along with the notion that Hana is all about the journey, not the destination,will ensure that you take in every exciting twist and turn and stopping often, see all the places of interest along the route instead of just racing through to the “end”. Be sure to stop by Hana Picnic on your way out to stock up on supplies for your trip!
