It very well may be. If someone in your group gets car sick, you may want to take your own car so that you can turn around if it gets bad.
Some of our friends also get car sick on the road to Hana. Here are a few things we do:
- Bring Ginger Ale. Ginger is a miracle root for nausea. I’ve actually seen people suck on a chunk of fresh ginger root.
- Take anti-nausea pills. Go to the drug store and grab some Dramamine.
- Make frequent stops. You’ll want to stop anyways to check out the view.
- Get a convertible. We love the open air of Jeeps.
If you’re on a coach tour, you might not have the luxury of stopping everyone or turning back. Also, remember that you don’t need to do the WHOLE road to Hana to get a feel for it and to enjoy some waterfalls. Stop and turn back when you want to with your own vehicle.
I hope that helps, Tina.
