Looking to get to Hawaii without blowing your child's college fund? Want to experience the islands but not sure when to go?

想在不花光孩子大学学费的情况下去夏威夷?想体验这些岛屿,却不知道什么时候去?

Here's how to avoid costly and exhausting mistakes during your Hawaiian vacation.

以下是如何在夏威夷度假期间避免费用昂贵和犯错的建议。

Don't travel to Hawaii during school holidays.

在学校放假期间不要去夏威夷旅行

Tourists crowd Hawaii's stunning beaches in summer and winter. During school holidays, flight and hotel rates are off the charts -- between Christmas and New Years, condos and vacation rentals can run three times as much as rates in early December.

在夏天和冬天,大量的游客挤满了夏威夷迷人的海滩。而且在学校放假期间,机票和酒店的价格都高得离谱—甚至在圣诞节和新年期间,度假公寓的租金价格可能是12月初的三倍。

Do visit Hawaii in the off-season.

最好在淡季去夏威夷旅行。

Hands down the best values on visiting Hawaii can be found in May and October. With prices reasonably low and the weather at its peak -- not too hot, not too rainy -- take advantage of the perks of off-season travel to jet off to the islands. Current spring and fall flight deals from the West Coast are half of July rates.

毫无疑问,5月和10月是游览夏威夷的最佳时间。那时候的价格相当低,而且天气也很棒—既不是很热,也不多雨,还可以利用淡季旅行的便利,乘飞机前往这些岛屿。目前来自西海岸的春秋两季的机票价格是7月份的一半。

Additionally, hotels and condos generally slash their prices off-season, rewarding visitors with oceanfront accommodations that typically sell out in peak months.

此外,酒店和公寓通常会在淡季大幅度降价,而且还会为游客提供通常在旺季售罄的海滨住宿。

Don't blow your whole budget on a luxury resort.

不要把你全部的预算都花在豪华度假村上。

While staying in a luxurious Hawaiian resort where birds flutter through the open-air lobby and fresh papaya is served at the swim-up bar is nice, it is likely to cost between $400-$600 a night in high season. Instead, fork over the cash for a lomilomi massage and gourmet seafood dinner, and make your own poolside Mai Tai at a rental condo.

在夏威夷的一个豪华度假胜地,你可以看到鸟儿在露天大厅里翩翩起舞,还能在酒吧里享用新鲜的木瓜,但尽管如此,在旅游旺季时每晚的花费可能在400美元到600美元之间。相反,你可以用这笔钱来享受一次按摩和一顿美味的海鲜晚餐,然后在租来的公寓里,在泳池边享受制作鸡尾酒的乐趣。

Do consider staying in a condo.

一定要考虑去住公寓。

Repeat visitors know to rent a condo. Kitchens, ample square footage, washing machines and privacy afford travelers a more authentic (and often less costly) vacation experience.

经常来的游客知道如何租公寓。而且公寓的厨房、宽敞的面积、洗衣机和隐私性为旅行者提供了一种更真实(通常也更便宜)的度假体验。

It's common for numerous companies to manage individual units in the same complex, meaning one property may be decked out by a globetrotting interior decorator, while another may be awash in wicker. Be sure to see photos of the particular condo you're interested in and get specifics on the number and configuration of beds.

对于许多公司来说,在同一个体制下管理单个部门是很常见的,这意味着某一处房产可能是由一位周游世界的室内设计师装饰的,而另一处可能就是普通的柳条装饰的。所以一定要多看看你感兴趣的公寓照片,并询问床的数量和配置的细节。

Don't try to see everything.

不要试图去玩遍整个夏威夷。

While each island has its own personality, it is too expensive (and exhausting) to island-hop the entire archipelago on one vacation. Inter-island flights generally run between $70-$140 each way and most travel to Oahu, so if you want to get from Kauai to the Big Island, you might have to stop in Honolulu and basically pay the equivalent of two inter-island flights each way.

虽然每个岛屿都有自己的特色,但单靠一个假期就游览整个群岛太贵了(而且也很累人)。岛际航班通常单程票价在70美元到140美元之间,而且大部分都是飞往欧胡岛的,所以如果你想从考艾岛到飞到别的岛屿,你可能需要在檀香山停留,基本上相当于单程两趟岛际航班的票价。

Do stick to one or two islands.

最好去游玩一到二个岛屿。

Each region on each island has its own flavor. The north and east sides of the islands are more tropical, while the south and west regions offer sunnier skies and a more arid landscape.

每个岛屿上的每个地区都有自己的特色。岛屿的北部和东部更偏向热带,而南部和西部地区则有更晴朗的天空和更干旱的景观。

Instead of island hopping, break your trip up by staying in a plush hotel within walking distance of a sunny south shore beach and then cozy up in a rental house near the more tropical (read: rainy) north shore. If you want to island-hop on the cheap, Maui offers ferry service to Lanai and Molokai.

与其在岛上玩耍,不如先住在离阳光明媚的南岸海滩不远的酒店里,然后在偏热带(多雨)的北岸附近租一间小房子,享受一下假期。如果你想住在更便宜的小岛,毛伊岛还提供到拉奈岛和莫洛凯岛的渡轮服务。

Don't fall for the luau.

不要对夏威夷群岛信以为真。

Most luaus are overpriced and far from the real thing (usually family events on a beach for a first birthday). While they seem like an authentic experience, you can actually piece together the highlights of a luau yourself.

夏威夷烤野猪宴的价格大多数都比较高,而且与真正的却相去甚远(通常是在海滩上举行的一周年家庭活动)。虽然它们看起来像是一种真实的体验,但实际上你也可以拼凑属于你自己的夏威夷盛宴。

Grab a picnic of poke, lomi lomi, fresh pineapple, and poi from a local market. In the evenings at most malls on Kauai and Maui, and at sunset at Waikiki Beach, you can watch free hula shows featuring some of Hawaii's best dancers.

你既可以从当地市场买一份带有猪肉,罗米粉,新鲜菠萝和芋头的美食,也可以在晚上去考艾岛和毛伊岛的大多数购物中心购买。日落时分,你可以在威基基海滩观看由夏威夷最好的舞者表演的草裙舞,而且是免费的。

Do splurge on an adventure.

一定要体验一次冒险的活动。

Whether you fancy diving deep into the sea, soaring over waterfalls on a helicopter tour, or a kayak trip along the Na Pali Coast, treat yourself to at least one adventure. Be sure to book early in your trip in case of bad weather.

无论你是想要潜入大海深处,在直升机之旅中飞跃瀑布,还是想要在纳帕里海岸上划皮艇,都至少要体验一次冒险。以防天气影响,一定要早点订票。

And lastly, do not forget to relax on the beach.

最后,不要忘记在沙滩上放松自己。

No need to be on a boat, or a horse, or a helicopter, or a zip line the whole time. Save time to enjoy Hawaii's world-class beaches. From the shore, you can walk right out into the sea and snorkel with sea turtles, angelfish and monk seals basically for free.

你不需要一直呆在船上,马上,直升机上,或高空飞索上。一定要空出时间去享受夏威夷世界级的海滩。而且在岸上,你可以直接走到海里,和海龟、神仙鱼、海豹一起浮潜,而且基本上是免费的。

As the sun descends over the Pacific, unwind under a coconut palm and watch the sky burst with color as surfers ride the last sunlit waves onto the white sand.

日落时,去在椰子树下放松,看着色彩斑斓的天空,冲浪者们则乘着最后的阳光海浪冲上白色的沙滩。
