Visitors to Hawai’i now have access to a one-stop-shop mobile reference guide to the Hawaiian Islands with the launch of the GoHawai’i app.
Hawai’i Tourism Oceania Country Manager, Kerri Anderson, said the app would make travel in the Hawaiian Island much easier for visitors – offering fast, accurate and trustworthy information – and some Hawai’i-inspired emojis that users can share.
“Helping visitors experience Hawai‘i safely is a significant aspect of the GoHawai‘i app, which contains important advice for ocean activities, hiking and weather conditions on each island,” Ms Anderson said.
“Visitors are outdoors all the time in Hawai‘i and this app helps keep them safe while they enjoy the beauty of our Islands.
“The GoHawai‘i app is a fun way to learn about Hawai‘i while having travel and safety information that people need to know about and have access to at all times.”
The GoHawai‘i app offers valuable travel tips for each of the six major Hawaiian Islands: Kaua‘i, O‘ahu, Maui, Moloka‘i, Lāna‘i and the Island of Hawai‘i. App users will discover useful information to help them enjoy Hawai‘i’s wide variety of sites, activities, special events and cultural festivals statewide.
A listing of essential Hawai‘i websites and phone numbers is also provided to direct travelers to other reliable sources for information and assistance.
The app also includes “Locomoji” – Hawai‘i-inspired emojis that can be shared with family and friends. Locomojis include images of an ‘ukulele, aloha shirt, erupting volcano, shave ice, and Spam musubi, among many others.
The GoHawai‘i app is free for download in the Google Play Store and Apple iTunes Store. It is offered in English, German, Japanese, Korean, Chinese simplified and Chinese traditional. To see a video about the new app, click here.
The travel destination app is the first one produced by the State of Hawai‘i.
