Maui island - Part 2

The second part of exploring Maui island. As you already have seen from the first part - this island considered to be one of the most beautiful islands in Hawaii. So lets see it a little bit more.

Beautiful Maui island

The island itself isn't deserted. It has awesome roads, stores, restaurants and all you might need.

Green Maui nature

But overall it's really green and nature friendly. Looks more like a Thailand.

Real heaven on earth.

Maui cliffs

I wonder if anyone has ever climbed there.

If a man speaks on a deserted island, and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

Unfortunately even in such paradise there are lots of homeless. But I bet they feel much more comfortable then the ones in colder countries.

Fishes in Hawaii

I bet you can't catch such fish in our country.

Hotels in Hawaii

As we drove further we just stopped by one of many hotels. The entrance is free so you can easily enjoy the territory.

Bamboo forest on Maui

The next day we went to see real bamboo forests. It was a tricky place to find. Thankfully locals could help us.

Going through jungles in Hawaii

It wasn't that easy to go through the jungles especially in the rain. But it was quite warm so the rain was really chilling.

Waterfalls in Maui

Founds some waterfalls on our way as well.
