Hawaii is the only state in the United States that does not lie
on the mainland of North America. It consists of a chain of 132
islands near the middle of the North Pacific ocean. Hawaii is also
the southernmost state.
Honolulu, the capital and largest city, is about 3,860 kilometres
southwest of the U.S. mainland. About 80 per cent of people live
on Oahu, where Honolulu is located. Hawaii is world famous for its
beauty and pleasant climate.
Its deep-blue seas, brilliantly coloured flowers, graceful palm
trees, and magnificent waterfalls provide some of the country's
most thrilling scenery.
