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 find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa). The adventure continues: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, take a tour of Battleship Missouri Memorial, admire all the interesting features of Diamond Head State Monument, and enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach.

To see photos, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu travel route planner .

London, UK to Honolulu is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 10 hours traveling from London to Honolulu. Traveling from London in September, expect Honolulu to be warmer, temps between 36°C and 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Tue) early enough to travel to Kipahulu.
