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 isn't San Francisco Chinatown but it is worth the visit. You should go early on a Saturday morning. It is very safe at this time. I saw nothing that made me feel uncomfortable. Kids would find this place interesting. Where else can you say...More

Every time I go there or drive by Chinatown I wonder why its so sketchy and run down. All the great cities have a "Chinatown" and they are all kind of this way. I like the commerce of an area when it thrives and I...More

People that have lived in Hawaii for a while will tell you - why did you go to Chinatown? There are so many homeless people! They're right, of course, but what you miss if you don't venture onto this part of the island are the...More

Went here with my aunty who is a local. I wasn't impressed. Considering that Oahu has so many beautiful places to visit, i wouldnt place this place on my to do list. It was a little bit seedy.

I went on a Saturday and parking wasn't too hard to find. Traffic was bumper to bumper though. Honestly it's more like an open market with a lot of fruits, veggies, and fish/meats for sale and a couple of stores where you could purchase neat...More

Love what I've seen happening in the Chinatown area lately. Seeing places transform from a place I'd prefer to avoid at night, to a thriving foodie scene is great. Lot's of small and fantastic food and drink places in the area and I suspect more...More

This is not your local mall or 5th Ave to go shoping. If that is what you want check out the glitzy Malls. If you want a place for adventure. Cute shops and restaurants for a feel of being in the Orient, grab your wallet...More

Yes but go there early as places will close earlier. Think of noon or 1pm when things start to wrap up.

Look at the Aloha swap meet. Y p u will get the exact same quality as in Chinatown much cheaper. For better quality jewelry look, at Nahaku jewelers. Alamo ana mall or on the ship next to cheesecake factory.
