Across the road from Iolani palace, loved these sites

Beautiful building and statue. Quite a few people thanks to the Hawaii 5-0 TV show. Across the road is the palace so do both.

If you go to Iolani Palace, just cross the street and there is the famous statue of King Kamehameha. It makes for a great photo.

Gorgeous statue of king Kamehameha in a bird feather robe. Across from the Ionia Palace. Watchers of Hawaii 5-0 will Remember the building as headquarters. If your patient you may get an unobstructed picture (usually crowded).

Beautifully maintained area that is perfect for pictures...so be prepared for lots of people doing just that...and not everyone is courteous of others...so it could be a frustrating experience.

This is a sight to behold and I hope that you get to see this statue for yourself; it stands in the center of Waikiki. It is very close to the Iolani palace

This is a fun spot to visit, across the street from the 'ilonai palace. Visit both in about 1 hour and that's enough.

Growing up in the mid 70's who didn't watch the iconic Hawaii 5-0 show. Every teenager like me, was glued to the family tv. I still get a thrill when I hear that theme song! Oh those drums, Steve McGarret, bookem' Danno....
