Honolulu

4.3

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism. Most travelers enter Hawaii through this city, so this is not the place for those wishing to get away from it all. A fast-paced and crowded urban center, Honolulu still manages to retain much of its laid-back atmosphere and traditional culture. The city's varied neighborhoods offer a selection of vacation ideas for every visitor, from sandy beaches crowded with surfers and swimmers to the quieter areas just north of downtown, which harbor picturesque snorkeling spots and pristine parks abundant in native plant and animal life. Honolulu is in Oahu. When using our United States itinerary planner to make an itinerary online, Honolulu holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
