The history of the lei dates back to the ancient Hawaiians, who wore
native flowers, braided leaves, shells, feathers, stones and bones to
beautify themselves. They often offered these garlands to each other and
to their gods as a symbol of love and friendship.
Look for your
lei greeter once you stroll past security at Honolulu Airport. Enjoy a
warm, Aloha welcome while a fresh strand of orchids is placed around
your neck. Inhale the sweet fragrance and make the immediate switch into
relaxation mode for the beginning of your trip.
For honeymooners, upgrade to the deluxe package to include two, ornate orchid leis.
