Hawaii sells itself, it's time to follow Costco's genius
|The way to keep tourism down in Hawaii|
is to circulate photos like the above!

North Kapaa. Hawaii sells itself.
Does Hawaii really need to market herself?
The infrastructure can only handle so much.
The Hawaii Convention and Visitors Bureau has directors, marketing people and offices on all four major islands that cost taxpayers major money.
Why are we the taxpayers paying to promote tourism when tourism sells itself for Hawaii? The lines at the supermarket are out of control, the traffic is at a stand still, and getting an appointment at your doctor is almost impossible because they are booked with out of town appointments.

As does Costco!
The Hawaii Tourism Authority says on its on web page, "HTA is responsible for supporting programs that enhance and showcase Hawaii's people, place and culture in order to deliver an incomparable visitor experience." They make it sound like they will really enhance the visitor's experience? How? In traffic, pot-holes on the roads, public restrooms without toilet paper, dirty, plus to top it off being packed like cattle onto air flights both to and from the islands?
Hawaii does not have to sell itself especially with the influx and over population that is currently happening and affecting our infrastructure in such drastic ways.
Read Garden Island news article- "Flights to Kauai to increase by 42.6 percent in 2018"
Just wait until 2018 when according to the Garden Island news, arrivals of flights to Kauai are said to increase by 42.6%, which will also have a huge trickle down effect on the car rentals that already over occupy the few roads on our island.
Let Costco be an example, they never advertise. Costco sells itself. You never see them advertise on TV or in print. Why? They get people in by word of mouth with their great deals! Who doesn't know about the $1.50 hot dog and refillable drink? Likewise who doesn't know about the $4.99 rotisserie chicken the size of a small turkey? In the same essence who doesn't know that Hawaii has great weather and it's moniker is "Paradise?"
