The main highlight of this brochure is an aerial photograph of Waikiki Beach with the majestic Diamond Head in the background, one of Hawaii's most famous landmarks. This ancient volcanic crater forms a dramatic backdrop for the beaches of Waikiki and is a popular hiking destination for panoramic views. Accompanying the photo of Waikiki Beach as an aerial panorama of Honolulu and its downtown.  

The brochure also features a fine depiction of the other islands of Hawaii. This section includes the colloquial name of the island and pictorial illustrations showing the agricultural production, historic sights, and recreational activities present on the island. These include the monument to Captain James Cook, various resorts, and the famous Haleakala National Park. The brochure provides recommendations for interisland travel and ideal tourist locations.
