We will be landing in the island in 2 days. I've done research on activities and entertainment. The only questions I have are the Hawaiian culture and customs. Tripadvisor has a little tidbit on the culture however are there anything we should be educated on? What not to do? Our travel agent said we should embrace the Polynesian culture and speak as much Hawaiian as we can learn how. Is this true?
I don't feel comfortable speaking the native language for the fear of transcribing something wrong or in a perceived ill manner. Any tips and advice is appreciated in advance.
Also, our AAA book said we should never honk. Any recommendations such as those for a couple in their mid-30's with a rental car, staying at a Bed and Breakfast in Captain Cook is appreciated as well (I'd like to mention, we know not to leave anything valuable in plain sight in our rental car - obviously!).
