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 Kailua Beach Park and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Attractions like Polynesian Cultural Center and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park make great kid-friendly stops. Go for a jaunt from Honolulu to Waianae to see Swim with Dolphins about 52 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Battleship Missouri Memorial and contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace.

To see photos, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu online trip itinerary planner .

Kolkata (Calcutta), India to Honolulu is an approximately 24-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time is minus 15 hours. October in Honolulu sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 27°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) early enough to travel to Poipu.

Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. We've included these beaches for you: Hanalei Beach and Poipu Beach Park. Discover out-of-the-way places like Na Pali Coast State Park and Wailua Falls. Change things up with a short trip to Waimea Canyon State Park in Waimea (about 56 minutes away). There's still lots to do: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

For more things to do, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Poipu trip planning app .

Getting from Honolulu to Poipu by flight takes about 2.5 hours. In October, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) so you can travel to Lahaina.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Napili Beach and Ho'okipa Beach Park. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Wailea Beach and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Step out of Lahaina with an excursion to Scuba & Snorkeling in Kihei--about 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Lahaina Front Street, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center, and don't miss a visit to Lahaina Banyan Court.

For maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Lahaina trip itinerary builder .

Traveling by combination of flight and bus from Poipu to Lahaina takes 4 hours. Alternatively, you can fly. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in October, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
