A: To make the most of your time on the Road to Hana, it pays to pack a picnic breakfast and lunch to enjoy along the way. There are banana bread stands along the way where you can grab a smoothie and snack, too, but bring cash since that's all they accept. You'll also want to bring sturdy shoes if you plan to hike, and a few towels since brief, warm rain showers happen daily along the way. Make sure you fill your gas tank and charge your camera batteries, too. And don't forget the bug spray, since the mosquitos love all that lush scenery as much as tourists do.
