The hustle and bustle of Honiara, the capital of Solomon Islands, provides a nice counterpoint to the slow pace and laid-back atmosphere in other areas of the country.
On the 7th (Thu), explore the ancient world of Bonegi I and II, admire the natural beauty at Solomon Islands Memorial Garden, then admire the sheer force of Tenaru Falls, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Mbonege Beach. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the history behind Guadalcanal American Memorial, then pause for some serene contemplation at Holy Cross Cathedral, then hunt for treasures at Honiara Central Market, and finally stroll around Honiara Botanical Gardens.
