Take in the beautiful botanical gardens in Hilo, filled with orchids, palms, the pencil tree, and many other exotic tropical species.
Our tour in Hilo was not very interesting and this was the 'highlight' stop. The zoo was poor and the main attraction, a Bengal tiger, had died a few months earlier. Some interesting plants and a play area for the local children / families to use.

This was a surprisingly nice stop. It was beautiful and we would definitely recommend seeing this. It doesn't take too long but is really special.
