That is weird, we usually see massive herds of Asian tourists in Hawaii.

^Also my experience while visiting there.


For me I found it too beautiful to be overrated but I've only been to Oahu...once.

San Francisco.

Visit to Alcatraz, and Golden Gate Bridge is definitely a great experience and lots of fun; however, rest of San Fran City is over rated when you look at the cost, IMO.

We stayed at Park Central Hotel where overnight parking was $100 a night, and that's on top of $400 a night for the room.

3, absolutely watered down, 16 Oz cups of hot chocolate at AT&T park cost me $21.

I could have visited Europe in the same amount of money that I spent in one week in San Fran.

Homeless people everywhere.

Super over-crowded and quite dirty/trash with over-loaded traffic.

Rising crime rate and live scenes of shop lifting are norm of the day. Police seems toothless.

Couple of good things that I noticed that every tree looked very fresh and lively. There was hardly any dead leaf or broken branches. Flowers seem to bloom very nice too. It must be the weather.

I guess over all it could be a nice place but not for everyone.

City definitely needs to find ways to handle crowds.

While I agree about SFO itself, I love San Francisco as a starting point towards the wilderness (Muir woods, northern part) or coast of Californa. I used to stay a couple of days in the city and it was okay, but nothing special and certainly overpriced.

I know, right? Wichita and Topeka also have the ocean, mountains, and huge amounts of historic architecture all in one place.

Just kidding.
