Chinatown Stands in Support of Maui!

Last Saturday, August 26, community volunteers placed the finishing touches on a new Chinatown Mural honoring the victims and survivors of the Maui Fires. The Mural is located at the corner of King and Nuuanu Streets in Chinatown Honolulu Downtown.

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – [A Honolulu Fire captain designed a mural in Chinatown to honor the victims of the Maui wildfires. Dozens of volunteers helped with its completion. The mural features Lahaina’s historic banyan tree, the island of Maui, and the message “Chinatown Supports Lahaina.” It is a symbol of support for the wildfire victims and pays tribute to those affected by the Chinatown fires of 1900, which destroyed 4,000 homes. Gary Atud, a Honolulu Fire Captain, expressed empathy for the wildfire victims and the desire to show support.]

Should I travel to Maui now?

The decision of whether to visit Maui is a personal one that each guest must make.  We encourage guests with current Maui travel plans, particularly reservations after October 1 to the unaffected areas (including Kahului, Wailuku, Kīhei, Wailea, Mākena, Pāʻia, and Hāna) to consider maintaining their reservations.

For guests with Maui travel plans to Kaanapali, Napili and Kapalua please check with your hotel or host for the latest re-opening information. This is especially important for existing reservations after October 17.  The town of Lahaina and immediate vicinity will remain closed to non-residents.  All guests should be especially mindful and respectful while visiting Maui as the community continues through this extremely difficult time. Please read the entire Post about visiting Maui for more information and to get the latest information.

While West Maui and Lahaina are currently closed the rest of Maui is OPEN and needs the support of visitors to survive.
