One word: Paradise.
From the moment visitors are greeted with a traditional floral lei, Honolulu is a paradise to the senses. Fragrant trade winds gently blow cool breezes throughout the perfect warm days. Lazy palm trees sway as gentle waves wash over pristine Waikiki beach. Chinatown bustles with excited shoppers while cafes and street vendors overflow with diners enjoying epicurean delights.
The downtown nightlife is filled with the sounds of singing, dancing and theatre shows at the Hawaii Theatre. With a proud native culture and influences from Asia and America, Honolulu has an abundance of shopping, art, culture and nightlife. Whether you’re in the mood for traditional island dancing performances, exceptional art galleries such as the Hawaii State Art Museum, shopping at international markets like Ala Moana/Ward Centre, or dancing until dawn at the hippest nightclub, Honolulu is full of excitement and activity.
Home to the birthplace of surfing, Waikiki beach is conveniently located in the middle of Honolulu. There you can take a surfing lesson, tour the waters on an outrigger canoe, or simply bask in the warm Hawaiian sunshine. In addition, visitors will be impressed with the many historical sites to see in Honolulu such as the only royal palace in the USA and the Aloha Tower and Royal Hawaiian Resort made famous by television and film. Honolulu is a great city to begin your experience of the Hawaiian Islands.
