‘No’ Is The Reason To Go

Moloka'i gets relatively few visitors, especially by comparison to the four Hawaiian Islands that are larger and more populous (Hawai'i, Maui, O'ahu, and Kaua'i). There are quite a few reasons why this is so, and they all start with the word "no" – no chain motels with flashing 'vacancy' signs, no lush resort with parking attendants poised at the porte-cochere, no spas, no commercial lu'au, no movie theaters, no white-linen gourmet restaurants, no Lamborghinis for rent. That sounds pretty negative until you start thinking about what else is not there – no traffic signals, no traffic, no city lights, no noise, no crowds, no tension, no hype, no mistrust, and no chance that you'll ever get lost.
