Transcript of Hawaii

In first place, we need to meet the Hawaiian Islands. They are: Hawaii, Maui, Lanai, Molokai, Ohau and Kauai. But we are going to talk just about Hawaii in general.

Larger than all of the other islands combined, Hawaii Island, or Hawaii, the Big Island, is vast enough to hold 11 of the world’s 13 climactic zones—from sandy beaches to snowcapped mountains. You can see waterfalls, rainforests and botanical gardens in Hilo, and explore the calm and clear water of Kona, or view Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
