Honolulu, Oahu

— 4 nights

Big Pineapple

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 Lanikai Beach and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Kapiolani Regional Park and Kuhio Beach. There's lots more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Ala Moana Beach Park, see the interesting displays at Bishop Museum, and stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

To see traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, read our Honolulu trip planner.

Ljubljana, Slovenia to Honolulu is an approximately 25-hour combination of shuttle and flight. The time zone changes from Central European Standard Time (CET) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -11 hour difference. Traveling from Ljubljana in October, expect Honolulu to be much hotter, temps between 36°C and 27°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Tue) so you can travel to Poipu.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
