Chinatown, Honolulu

1.0
#8 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Hawaii
Nestled in the financial district, Chinatown offers a mix of Chinese attractions with Hawaiian fare. Dim sum restaurants, Chinese bakeries, and herbalists mingle with lei stands and Hawaiian bars. Many of the buildings in this historical neighborhood have retained an original facade despite renovations, so be sure to note the architecture. Walk the streets here to enjoy the sights of exotic fruit stands, try your luck haggling with vendors, and discover impressive temples reminiscent of Japan and China. The neighborhood's bars and restaurants offer a vibrant nightlife as well. Add Chinatown to your Honolulu travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Honolulu trip itinerary app .

  • Only 5 minutes on foot from the downtown with a lot of business landmarks was the Chinatown with many nice local restaurants serving ethnic food of Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, China. It was nice to walk ...  more »
  • We were shocked to see filthy streets, people out of their skulls on meth, trash, homeless people and more - not safe to go IMHO and definitely do not go at night!  more »
  • I had read in a guide that this was a top attraction, went in the evening, it looked dirty and uninviting. You could see a few Chinese there, but it not blew us off the stool

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.
