The cast from The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been on some incredible trips, from stateside trips to Savannah and Miami to trips abroad to Thailand, Jamaica, and Mexico. This season the group went to Maui for at least one of their trips. The Maui episodes will air sometime in 2017. At least some of the cast members were at the Four Seasons, Maui, as evidenced from images posted social media.

Although they may have their disagreements, and all-out fights, one thing is for certain, the housewives travel to some of the most beautiful destinations in the world.

Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker had a bad beginning to their trip before they even arrived to Hawaii, because they were asked to get off the flight. Apparently, there was a computer error. Kandi posted on her Instagram back in October that a flight attendant asked to see her ticket, left with it, and when Kandi asked that it be returned, so she could have her baggage claim tickets, she and Todd were accused of causing a commotion and asked to leave the plane.  The image below sums up Kandi’s feelings towards Hawaiian Airlines.

Drama aside, the Atlanta Housewives typically have a full itinerary of activities during their trips. If the following Instagram shots are any indication, the Maui trip has plenty of selfie worthy experiences and fun things to do.

These girls are crazy, lol @sportsoneclt @cluboneclt

Looking to have your own getaway to Maui? Take it easy in your resort or explore the island to create genuinely memorable experiences of your own. Here are some ideas.

  1. Lounge Around the Resort

With a spread like this, it’s obvious that you don’t need to leave the resort’s grounds at a resort like the Four Seasons in Maui. Lounge around the pool with a frosty beverage and you’re all set.

2. Go Whale or Dolphin Watching

Take a catamaran tour to spot whales and dolphins. Just be sure to have your camera ready.

3. Botanical Gardens

The Garden of Eden Arboretum has dozens of plants and flowers in one place. Two businesses, Fractal Art Gallery and Rappel Maui are housed on the garden’s property.  You might even be treated to a photo opp of some of the arboretum’s wildlife.

4. Go to a Luau

Luaus are traditional Hawaiian parties, usually with food and entertainment. Everyone knows that you should attend at least one luau while in Maui.

5. Go Horseback Riding

Make your fantasies of horseback riding in paradise a reality. Ride along a beach, in the mountains, in the fields or even down into a volcano crater, according to the Maui Convention and Visitors Bureau.

6. Go Shopping

There’s plenty of shopping. Some of the best places in Maui to shop include: the Maui Swap Meet for local goods, and the Shops at Wailea for boutique shopping and fine dining, and the Outlets of Maui for oceanfront, shopping, dining, and entertainment.

7. Go Boating

Take a boat out for a snorkeling trip, scuba diving, or go island hopping. Have just as much (or more) fun as the Atlanta Housewives.

7. Find a Waterfall

Haleakala National Park has stunning waterfalls. You can’t miss the Pools of Ohe’o.  Aside from Haleakala, Maui also has 95 state and county parks to explore.

9. Go to the Beach

Waianapanapa Beach, known also as the Black Sand Beach is another must-see. Sure, Hawaii has beautiful white sand beaches, but the rarer black sand beach is definitely photo-worthy, even if you are as well-traveled as the Housewives themselves.

10. Take a Train Ride

The Sugar Cane Train is a restored runs daily from from Lahaina to just north of Kaanapali. Pass through fields and see the  homes between the towns.
