[Extract] Hawaii, an island group located in the Pacific Ocean, is a major international tourist destination that attracted over 7.5 million visitors in 2005. Its attractiveness is based on a multilayer appeal that first came to the attention of travellers through the writings of noted 19th-century novelists such as Mark Twain, who wrote of Hawaii: 'No other land could so beseechingly haunt me, sleeping and waking, through half a lifetime as that has done'. Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson, who penned Treasure Island, visited Hawaii and wrote about his journey, as did Herman Melville, author of Moby Dick. Later, movies and television added to the mystique of Hawaii as a Pacific paradise. In the 20th century the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau cleverly used the theme of a Hawaii paradise to romanticize the destination.
