Great place to walk and window shop! Even better to people watch a fascinating array of cultures and many street artists! Bonus is you feel and are safe.

Honolulu is a wonderful place to visit, and culture and the city are amazing. Not to mention the beach just so close by. I have now visited this beautiful Island 3 times and cant wait to return again one day.

I was not impressed. If it were not for a lay over and to see Pearl Harbor missing Oahu would be no big thing. The other islands are so much prettier. To me the downtown area of Oahu is just like being in any city...More

There are definitely some unique things to see and do in and around Honolulu, but if you want a sense of the real Hawaii, get out of Honolulu. The beaches are crowded, pasted with tourists. The food in the downtown area is poor as is...More

Downtown Honolulu is pretty cool. There are many tall buildings, yet so many beautiful trees cover the area. It is not a huge downtown, so we are able to walk around in such short time. Downtown vibe is very laid-back and relaxing.

Enjoyed a good walk on a sunny day around Downtown referring to our guide for information about the prominent sights. Take time to visit the Iolani Palace for a very good tour. Continued to Chinatown which was a bit rundown and then on to the...More
