Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and Battleship Missouri Memorial. Head to Ala Moana Center and Ward Villagefor some retail therapy. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku). There's lots more to do: stroll through Waikiki Beach, hunt for treasures at Aloha Stadium Swap Meet, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and enjoy the sand and surf at Kapiolani Regional Park.

To find more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, read Honolulu trip planner.

Sydney, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time (New South Wales) (AEST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -20 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Sydney in October, with highs in Honolulu at 36°C and lows at 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel to Wailea.
