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.

    Smell and can easily come in Chinatown storefront sign and sign in kanji because, like the Hong Kong S.A.R. (Octagon etc) and Chinese and the senses tell you right away. Walk in the Mauna Kea marketplace in the middle of the city is the Tsukiji fish market stalls are lined up. Pulling too weak I'd named Mauna Kea marketplace is not suitable, do Hong Kong S.A.R. market or market of Guangdong in China like an assortment and the smell butcher and organs are lined with strong vegetable's many scented, break out in a market in the trot. The shy sits drunked people on the sidewalks from daytime to ammonia smell, so passes by the side. Recently, even in the daytime snatching is seductive because it is Chinese food favorite and frequently boring, because there have been injuries.

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.
