In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Shop till you drop at Polynesian Cultural Center and Bailey's Antiques and Aloha Shirts. Step out of the city life by going to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and Sunset Beach Park. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). There's still lots to do: stroll through Waikiki Beach, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center.

Seoul, South Korea to Honolulu is an approximately 12.5-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 19 hours traveling from Seoul to Honolulu. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Seoul in November, with highs in Honolulu at 34°C and lows at 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
