Do you need a visa to do work away or the other “free” accommodations options?

Tristin Ebel says:

For those of you watching this getting ready to travel to Oahu, iolani palace, it costs $20 for a full tour and it is INCREDIBLE! Worth every dollar you will walk away feeling so much aloha spirit and appreciating the culture of Hawaii so much more

Shellbell says:

So a few things I learned Is that the island has a whole #vanlife community. I wanted to add that if you rent a car you can also rent a camper van and have all what you need go with you from kitchen to wheels. It's perfect for people who like to get up and go. Or wish those rare sunsets and sun rises. Another tip a place I found to eat at is a Chinese restraunt called Number 1 It's an awesome place and they have the best breakfast bowls for only 3 bucks USD. Also 7/11 is amazing they have these machines that makes fresh smoothies and shakes. Love love love them. That's all I got so far. Great video and thanks so much for all the tips. 🙂
