Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 30th (Thu), see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, shop like a local with Volcano Art Center Gallery, then trek along Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail, then stroll through Devastation Trail, and finally trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead.

Plan my trip to Volcano with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Samarinda, Indonesia to Volcano is an approximately 33-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone difference moving from Central Indonesia Time to Hawaii Standard Time is minus 18 hours. May in Volcano sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Kailua-Kona.
