Downtown Honolulu, Hawaii is great. There are organized tours but this is really not necessary. If you are lucky enough to live in a city with a 'China Town', then this will be a treat. If staying in Waikiki, then a simple bus ride will get you there. Walking around you will discover the 'business district' and 'China Town'. There... More

Slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. It's a $20 cab ride from any of the major hotels on Waikiki, but you can find a bus from $2. There are a few hidden gems and you won't find the often longer wait times you'll find in Waikiki

The best place which I still enjoyed to travel. The people are nice in Honolulu with a mix of Asia and Pacific culture.

I have been travelling to Honolulu annually for years as a solo female. (My spouse stays home to take care of 10 pets but we trade off, he goes with his friends). I travel solo because I have friends in Oahu and Maui. I have no fears whatsoever about Honolulu's downtown. A police safety course for women and kids I... More

Love this place!! Vibrant place esp during the night time! Worth a visit! But don't visit during Sundays as a lot of businesses are closed on Sundays.

Great vacation city amazing location just off Waikiki Beach. Tons of shops restaurants clubs and entertainment. Kind of a New York City in a resort area. This place just rocks at night but be careful ....there are a lot of pick pockets preying on tourists. Don't miss The Market it's great!

Had a great time visiting Downtown Honolulu, a lot of shops and souvenir places to visit. It is a lot busier at night so just beware of pickpockets and scams which we encountered one night, where a person placed a bird on our shoulder and took our cameras to take pictures for us and asked for money! Other than that... More
