Waikiki Trails

In celebration of the holidays, Hawaii Book Blog would like to extend our gratitude to all of our wonderful readers and give away a couple of books in December to a few lucky people.  The winner of our first holiday giveaway will receive a brand new copy of the fabulous book Waikīkī:  Nine Walks Through Time by Veneeta Acson, Ph.D.  This is a really lovely and uniquely structured guidebook covering the sites and history of what is now the tourist haven known as Waikiki.  It’s very well thought out and would be useful not only for tourists visiting Hawai’i but also for locals as there are a lot of educational references about the area.  Whether you’re from Hawaii or not it’s well worth considering taking a look at this book as it provides a fun and interesting way to explore the historical sites of Waikīkī.  We did a review of this book a while back which can be read here.  Now on to the giveaway.
