Honolulu, on the island of Oahu’s south shore, is capital of Hawaii and gateway to the U.S. island chain. The Waikiki neighbourhood is located beside Kahanamoku Beach and is the best place in the city for dining, nightlife and shopping. Honolulu is famous for its iconic crescent beach backed by palms and high-rise hotels, with volcanic Diamond Head crater looming in the distance.
The Ala Moana district has a popular beach with calm water and the huge Ala Moana Centre shopping complex. Downtown is the Hawaii State Capitol building and Iolani Palace, once home to Hawaiian royalty (now a museum). The Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum and Hawaii State Art Museum showcase local culture, and the city’s historic Chinatown is also part of the Arts District. Honolulu also contains small pockets of rainforest, canyons, waterfalls and beaches with coral reefs.
From barefoot fish tacos at Duke’s Beach House in Waikiki to the eclectic food scene in trendy Chinatown, Honolulu has something for every taste. Sample fine Hawaii Regional Cuisine at local institutions like Alan Wong’s Restaurant, Roy’s Waikiki or Chef Mavro. Explore Honolulu’s residential neighbourhoods and eat like a local with plate lunches, poke and fresh produce from the city’s many fantastic farmers markets.
Whether you’re looking for Hawaiian-made handicrafts to remember your trip by or high-end fashion labels you can’t find at home, Honolulu is a shopper’s paradise; you may even want to pack an extra suitcase for all the treasures you’ll find.
