Honolulu Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia


Honolulu is located on the Polynesian island
O’ahu, in the middle of the North Pacific ocean. It is the capital of Hawaii: The 50th, and
youngest, American state. In tropical Honolulu, the surf is always up
and the weather always warm. Hawaii’s biggest city offers the perfect mix of nature, culture, sports and shopping all
in the one place. With America’s only royal palace at its core and Pearl Harbor just around the corner, there is also a lot of history to discover. Visit the Bishop Museum to learn about the
Polynesian voyagers who came here hundreds of years before captain
Cook dropped anchor in 1778. The native Hawaiians and first Europeans were
drawn to the majestic profile of the Diamond Head
volcano, which is still an attraction today. Wherever you are in the city, the backdrop
of Lēʻahi, as the locals call the crater, is a constant reminder of Hawaii’s explosive
beginnings. Climb the short trail to its circular rim for commanding views over the island and its
picture-perfect coastline. Go to the top of the Aloha Tower to see how Honolulu has become a modern urban
center. The capital is the gathering place where residents
of Hawaii do business, but tourists mainly come here for its beaches
and watersports. Honolulu means “sheltered bay” and any day of they year you can go swimming,
stand up paddle boarding and sailing in the harbor. Ala Moana Beach Park is the quieter alternative
to popular Waikiki. Laze on the beach, or, if you start feeling
active, get surfing lessons or rent a canoe to explore
the bay. Stroll over the boulevard to buy everything
from up-scale fashion to flowery local garments to brighten up your
wardrobe. Downtown, you can’t miss the statue of the fearless warrior King Kamehameha, who unified the Hawaiian islands in the late
18th century. Admire the American Florentine architecture
of Iolani Palace and visit the Halekoa barracks. For lunch, try a Japanese fusion dish. The largely Asian American population of Honolulu has left its mark on the cuisine and culture
of the island. Visit Kapi’olani Park with its ancient Banyan
trees and attractive beachfront. The park is home to the historic Honolulu
Zoo, so take the kids to see friendly giants, and
exotic birds. Set aside a day for Pearl Harbor to see the remnants of the U.S. Pacific Fleet that was crippled by an air raid on December
7, 1941. Pay your respects on the USS Arizona Memorial, visit the aviation museum and see the spot
that marks the surrender of Japan aboard the USS Missouri. To the east of Pearl Harbor, the warm turquoise waters of Kailua Beach are waiting to take your mind off worldly
affairs. Cool off with shave ice, the local version
of a snow cone. Head back to downtown Honolulu for sunset and watch a Hula dancing show in the romantic
capital of Hawaii. Honolulu is a convenient stop over on your
way to other Hawaiian islands, but also a great destination in itself. Come and experience the true meaning of Aloha, which is much more than just Hawaiian for
“Hello!”. It means a warm welcome; love; best wishes;
and even goodbye. But it never means farewell…

  3. Is Hawaii dry or wet? Like, is it more rain foresty, or more deserty? It looks rain foresty, but is there any Island that is kinda dry?

  4. This is where I've been living for many years since when I was two years old! I am glad living here! So beautiful and pretty with cool landmarks! Such a happy place! But sometimes I want to leave and go to Seattle…

  8. Always been watching these kind of videos and dreaming about going to Hawaii one day…

    Can’t believe it but my parents just booked a flight to Oahu, Honolulu Hawaii! Been waiting for a long time

  9. Its really pretty there. I when to the Hilton Hotel and GEEZ! There was a lagoon a beach near our hotel we could walk there. My dad and I wanna go to Japan and Hawaii RN but my mom old bro and yonger bro wanna go so… I already told them where we should go which is HERE!

  10. Me and my entire family migrated here from the Philippines 🇵🇭 and Honolulu is home away from home. The beaches here are wonderful although Philippines has wonderful beaches as well. The only take away about the beach parks here are the rest rooms. They are filthy, smell is horrendous. If you can skip going to the rest room at the park until you get back to your hotel then you’ll be fine.

  11. horrible thing about going to a place you fall in love with , is knowing u will soon leave, then the melancollic longing to go back. life where u are just isnt good enough anymore…..so sad for those of us not born in paradise

  12. I’m so sad. It has always been my dream to go to Hawai! I’m from the Western Europe and I don’t know if I’ll ever make it, I can’t afford. I was planning to travel this September and I wish it was Hawai! And by myself? Omg that would been crazy, but not impossible right? I already travelled alone for the first time to Belgium last month, but that’s in Europe, so I can say it was easy and cool! Wish me luck guys! Hope you can make it one day too! 🍀
