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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sunset Beach Park and Waimea Bay. Visit Kailua Beach Park and Kapiolani Regional Park for some beach relaxation. Venture out of the city with trips to Lanikai Beach (in Kailua), Banzai Pipeline (in Pupukea) and Kokololio Beach Park (in Hauula). There's still lots to do: admire the majestic nature at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Honolulu travel planner.

New Delhi, India to Honolulu is an approximately 21.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time (IST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 15 hours. Traveling from New Delhi in December, expect nights in Honolulu to be much hotter, around 24°C, while days are somewhat warmer, around 32°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Wed) early enough to travel to Poipu.
