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.
