    The landmark of Honolulu and formerly the point on which the incoming ships were received. You should visit the tower because of the historical elevator and the views of Honolulu. You can forget the marketplace. Almost only vacancies in the shops.

    Closest to the ocean at the tip of the Aloha tower marketplace Gordon Biersch in ship and port pleasant view blowing in wind, enjoy a tasty beer and food is pretty good. Is lonely marketplace building fewer stores now, but into the vacated space for Hawaii Pacific University residence halls from the second floor of the building, commercial is on ground floor classroom of the University is a little like moved before. Though not the hustle and bustle of this desolate landscape changes so ginger, I used immigrants and tourists who came by boat to return would be me 吹ki返shite breath is somewhat. View tower to Aloha Tower view of Honolulu Harbor, to stand on the other side of downtown, also down the Aloha Tower is attacked by the illusion looks like a place and look along the quay of large buildings, there was immigration and customs, is brimming over with immigrants. I wonder if was really was the place more of a wonder and imagination will be sparked.

    Aloha tower was opened on September 11, 1926 to, as a lighthouse, to guide ships safely into port. You can see from the tower to a distance of 15 miles. Meanwhile, the Aloha Tower is no longer a beacon used. Today he is a conspicuous landmark that welcomes especially tourists from cruise ships, the "statue of liberty" of Honolulu. Because the large Grüter port is further to the North, direction airport. In the vicinity of the Aloha towers only cruise ships stop here. The Aloha Tower, you can also visit and climb up. This, the 10th floor serves as a viewing platform to consider E.g. the port and Honolulu. If you're planning a larger event such as a wedding, can book him even as a venue. To protect the Aloha Tower during the second world war, it has taken my opinion to an unusual means. In the second world war the tower was from the U.S.-controlled military and camouflage painted colors to make it difficult for enemy aircraft to see to destroy him at night. The colors have been removed again until 1947. The Aloha market place is located next to the Aloha Tower. Until a few years ago, it was a shopping centre. The Aloha market place for the people who came from the ship, was particularly popular to shop there. But shuttles intercepted refurbished bus the tourists directly to the past a ship, to Waikiki and Ala Moana to bring her shopping center. Therefore, this shopping mall over the time is unfortunately more and more extinct. To the point where there were no shops at all. Only two restaurant (Hooters and the Gordon Biersch) remain to this day. In recent years, this former shopping centre new life was breathed. The HPU (Hawaii Pacific University) has bought the entire complex and furnished student apartments and lecture halls. A short visit is worth as the Aloha Tower and the market place provide great photo opportunities. You can find more experiences and tips for a perfect Hawaii vacation by me on hawaii travel tipps.de.

    It was amazing how this place has changed from a mall to Hawaii Pacific University. They have done a really great job on dorm rooms and classrooms. There is also hooter, Nashville's and a crossfit gym.

    We were there early in the morning and every shops were closed. It was a bit surreal. So calm and beautiful.

    It's no longer a shopping mall but HPU dorm. A bit of a surprised and disappointed but all for the best, I guess. Some restaurants are still there - hooters, gordon biersh for an afternoon cocktail.

    I don't come here to eat because there are not many restaurants that I like. It's not a good place of shopping either...What I like is the Aloha Tower! It's the landmark and got famous because of the TV Hawaii Five O. On New Year's Eve, this place might be packed with people going to party and if you love party around, come here on special party occasions and have fun. On 12/31, there shot fireworks hourly at 9 p.m. to midnight 12 p.m. The firework before 12 p.m. however is only ONE minute long but if you don't like to stay up late you can enjoy the fireworks before bed, and call it a good year. ;)

    Definitely not the place it was years ago. Mostly empty shops due to leases and Hawaii Pacific University upstairs. Gordon Biersch still rocks though!

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.
