We explored Hanapepe area today, south of Kauai. It's an old town founded by Chinese people actually. Now it's a town where mostly local hawaiians live, with little tourism, except for that swinging bridge, the local attraction. But the town has a pleasant feeling, a bit run down, no fancy villas... a nice local feeling. The river valley itself is amazing, it's like a gorge and most of it is inaccessible by vehicle... maybe by kayak?
