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 family vacation planner.

  • Honolulu chinatown is small, but in truth whenever I travel somewhere, look if there is a Chinatown, am always Chinese descendants, and therefore I like to learn and discover what's on each Chinatown I visit. This time I saw the same as elsewhere, but with the difference that the food was better than in other chinatowns. There is an entry with 2 lions, a Chinese Theatre and places of parking if you're going by car.
