One of the many reason why I love living on Maui is that I love the sceneries while I drive. Whether I am driving to or from work, running an errand, or just cruisin with the kids – the view makes us feel like we are on a vacation. Many of them are like taken directly out of a post card or something.

We had a very busy weekend and I am going to have several posts about it. This is the first of the series. I wanted to share with you all some of the sceneries we see as we drive on Maui roads:


This is the Mokulele Intersection where Kihei Road, Piilani Highway, South Kihei Road and Mokulele Highway intersect. It's a huge intersection. It's used to be small and confusing; now it's big and still confusing 🙂


This is my view while driving on Mokuele Highway from Kihei to Kahului (or Wailuku)


Driving on South Kihei Road in the morning. Nice view and less traffic 🙂

And these are just the sampler. Wait till you see the scenic drive to Lahaina, Upcountry, Paia overlooking Hookipa, and Honoapiilani Highway. And that’s not even counting the drive to Keanae and Hana.  Oh yes, I love driving on Maui because of the scenic views. Now if we start talking about “our” driving skills and etiquette, I would say “no comment” . Let’s just say that occasionally you will see a bumper sticker that says “Slow Down, This Ain’t the Mainlaind”; and then other occasion you will encounter some locals who would seems to be frustrated when you are driving slow because you are a tourist enjoying the view.  🙂

I would be very interested to hear from those who lives on Maui or who came for a visit. What’s your take on driving on Maui?
