In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Waikiki Beach and Lanikai Beach. Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace. Change things up with a short trip to Sunset Beach Park in Haleiwa (about 1h 05 min away). Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, see the interesting displays at Bishop Museum, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and kick back and relax at Ala Moana Beach Park.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu road trip planning website .

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. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from London in January, with highs in Honolulu at 32°C and lows at 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Lahaina.

Lahaina, Maui

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.
On the 23rd (Wed), admire nature's wide array of creatures at Maui Ocean Center and then take a memorable tour with Tours. Here are some ideas for day two: stop by Glass Mango Designs, don't miss a visit to Lahaina Banyan Court, and then kick back and relax at Ka'anapali Beach.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Lahaina trip planner.

Traveling by combination of flight and bus from Honolulu to Lahaina takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight, taxi, and ferry. In January, daytime highs in Lahaina are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) early enough to travel to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Start off your visit on the 25th (Fri): take in the spiritual surroundings of Mokuaikaua Church, kick back and relax at Kahaluu Beach, and then fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: look for gifts at The Cindy Coats Gallery, then take in the waterfront at Kailua Pier, and then get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

You can plan Kailua-Kona trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Traveling by combination of bus and flight from Lahaina to Kailua-Kona takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus, flight, and taxi. In January, daily temperatures in Kailua-Kona can reach 31°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
