Traveling to Hawaii and the Philippines – Exploring the Truth behind the Tourism Industry

Hawaii is one of the most visited states in the United States of America today. With its high income from the tourism industry, which is 25% of the Gross State Product, Hawaii’s economy can be considered as a tourism-dependent nation among the many states and countries in the world.

However, exportation of foods, agricultural products and apparels is also the lifeline of the flourishing economy of Hawaii. There are eight major islands in this state that are helping together in achieving this tourism success. They are the Big Island, the Valley Isle, the Target Isle, the Pineapple Isle, the Friendly Isle, the Gathering Palace, the Garden Isle and the Forbidden Isle. With a close to 1.4 million population today, this island is very blessed with flora and fauna that are mainly attracting tourists and travelers from different parts of the world. Haleakala National Park in Maui and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in the main island of Hawaii are the two major national parks. The sceneries that you might have been viewed on several Hawaii official and sponsor websites could have been taken from the breath-taking and amazing wonders of the islands.

Hawaii is home to more than 200,000 Filipino-Americans. No wonder if one of the employees in these famous resorts are Filipinos or people with Filipino heritage. Hawaii and the Philippines are just oceans apart and they both have one thing in common; they are both archipelagos. If you will spend sometime reading the history of Hawaii, on how it became a heaven on earth place, you will be humbled and make proud somehow with the early people who molded this state. Hawaii was actually a kingdom before. Today, it is now one of the best states in the US. Honolulu is its capital city and it is earning a gross output of almost $50 billion each year. Pineapple, sugarcane and tourism are the industries that are continuously giving the Hawaiian people the bread and butter on their home.

Philippines, on the other hand, is home to hundreds of beautiful resorts that they often call paradise. Boracay Island in Western Visayas, Hundred Islands in Pangasinan and Palawan Underground River are just among the major tourist attractions in the country today. There are many other places in the Philippines that, like of those in Hawaii, can become the sources of income of its native people. There is the so-called Caramoan Islands in the eastern part of the country. It is in the province of Camarines Sur and is considered still as unexploited from commercial tourism.

Tourism is all about protecting the environment. Like of the Old Lahaina Laua and Kuleana Resort in Hawaii, protection, maintenance and utmost care are needed in order to preserve the true beauty and wonder of any places on the planet. Many countries are enacting laws for the creation of national parks and wildlife reserves. Philippines and the Filipinos can do the same thing. Philippines is an archipelago that is so rich in natural resources and amazing wonders of nature. However, many of the people, natives and investors are not doing their part in preserving these gifts from the Creator. Giving life to these Mother Nature’s blessings is the true meaning of the tourism industry.
