Overview
More
Buzzing with vendors, shoppers, business people and tourists, this sliver of Downtown Honolulu is an exciting mix of history, mystery and fun. Amid the lei stands, noodle factories, hole-in-the-wall eateries and herbal medicine shops, the Oahu Market attracts locals recognizing it for savory selections of fresh meats, fish and produce. Remember to frequently look up from the street level while walking around the district since many of the old buildings that were renovated have retained their original façade and completion date on the second story.

This was an enjoyable little market. A couple little shops & lots of food options. I will say dresses run very small; I wear a small & had to get a large dress. On a side note my local friend said they had more options...More

We visited Chinatown on a recent cruise call to Honolulu. This is not a large area, maybe only half a dozen blocks but nevertheless, we found it interesting. There were three large market areas selling foodstuffs and dry goods. There were lots of clothing shops...More

Unlike other China town in North America, Chinatown Honolulu does not offer much. I was expecting good Chinese restaurant or a place to buy cheap souvenirs, but there is none. It is not much to see.

I normally have a good vibe with Chinatown's in different cities/countries but Honolulu Chinatown let me down. The number of homeless walking the streets and screaming in the streets was a bit uneasy. The Maunakea Market was ok but it was also full of homeless...More

It is a must visit to understand the ethnic and cultural heritage of Hawaii! Most businesses close by 3:00 p.m.! Food court is very diverse. A must visit is Sun Chong on Hotel Street which has the largest collection of chinese snacks,,
