Shangri La, Honolulu

4.7
#6 of 16 in Historic Sites in Honolulu
Admire the Middle Eastern and Indian architecture of Shangri La, formerly the private home of heiress Doris Duke. Today, the site is known as a center for Islamic arts and culture, and you can see metalwork, mosaics, vases, and textiles in brilliant colors. Inside the house, you'll also see rare artifacts in various temporary exhibits. Stroll the gardens to see a collection of tropical plants, as well as a pool and water terraces that flow into each other on a cliff overlooking the coast. Tours begin and end at the Honolulu Museum of Art and must be reserved in advance. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Shangri La and many more Honolulu attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Honolulu trip website .

    Prior to net book Japan Japanese tour, joined the tour from the Honolulu Academy of arts. Can you explain it in Japan, and easy to understand. Manning was even harder, very well explained. It is recommended.

    Have to plan ahead by reserving space on bus at Honolulu Museum of Art. I went with my mom who was handicapped so I was allowed to drive separately and got a private tour. Very personal.  more »

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.
