Two weeks in Molokai
Introduction to Molokai
Molokai is the fifth largest highland out of the eight major islands that make up Hawaii Island located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Molokai is popular for some reasons ranging from its system of developments, business tourism and so on. History shows that Molokai was developed from two distinct shield volcanoes known as east Molokai and the smaller one called West Molokai. Molokai portrays a true nature of an island, having a high percentage of its population as Native Hawaiian ancestry.
