I have traveled in many different locations. I can say I have never seen anything as beautiful as Honolulu . It is beyond the physical beauty , it is the friendly, laid back people with their pure enjoyment of life in Hawaii. As you stand on the beaches you can look to the right and see the mountains. Every piece... More

Landed in Las Vegas! Don't spend your entire vacation in Honolulu. I mean you can but the real Hawaii is out there. Downtown Honolulu is just like the Vegas Strip only 3x more expensive.

Nice downtown area, VERY clean, especially in and around he Beachwalk area. I noticed why too....they MOP the sidewalks! Wow! I even got a pic of this, very impressive. Night life can get very crowded around the Beach Walk, Saratoga, Ala Moana blvd., really any of those streets in that area. Lots to do while you're waiting for your table... More

A lot of the attractions are in this area, several wonderful churches, the palace. Unfortunately, the plight of Honolulu's homeless is evident everywhere downtown. They are sleeping, smoking pot, and begging for money everywhere. We were in a McDonalds ordering lunch and a homeless man was screaming at the door for people to give him a dollar. It is also...

We enjoyed walking through Downtown Honolulu and experiencing the different sites. There is literally a mixture of everything. Old historic buildings, new buildings, hotels, bars, restaurants, shops etc. It's a real mix. I wouldn't say it was a must do attraction but if you have time it is nice to wonder around and get a feel of the city and... More

It's crowded and noisy all along the main strip. For a more relaxing stay try the hotels at the ends of Waikiki beach, some have private beach access. The main beach is very very popular, hard to find space to stretch out and relax. There are a lot of homeless people around.

Downtown Honolulu has lots of building and concrete sidewalks. It is like any big city's downtown district with the congestion to prove it. The interior of Oahu and the north, west and east coasts are very nice. Manoa valley is very pretty and just directly up the mountain from Honolulu.
