  • Description

    The Hawaiian Islands, the American vision of paradise -- an enchanted group of islands in the Pacific Ocean.

    It's a place that everyone wants to visit -- and the trouble is that too many people do.

    The main tourist island of Oahu, site of Honolulu, Waikiki and Pearl Harbour, is grappling with the problem of how to go on welcoming visitors without having them completely ruin the island's charm and beauty.

    Waikiki beach, fabled in song, story and film, is today rimmed with a wall of skyscraper hotels and jammed with wall to wall flesh.

    That's Hawaii's current problem -- to many visitors. With tourism its biggest industry, there are fears that the endless surge of visitors will erode the vibrant charm and naturalness of the mid-Pacific American state.
