Brochure aims to keep tourists safe

HONOLULU (AP) - Tourism officials are planning on issuing a brochure later this year to raise awareness among tourists about potential perils when visiting and enjoying Hawaii.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says the Visitor Aloha Society and Hawaii Tourism Authority plan to release an online brochure with tips for traveling safely in the islands. The brochure will be available in multiple languages and will be distributed to marketing partners, hotels and other visitor industry stakeholders.

Officials say at least 11 tourists have died in accidents so far this year.

Five tourists drowned, four died in traffic accidents and two fell from cliffs.
