In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Venture out of the city with trips to Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie), Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of USS Arizona Memorial, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach.

For more things to do, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, use the Honolulu online trip builder .

Cairo, Egypt to Honolulu is an approximately 25-hour flight. You'll gain 12 hours traveling from Cairo to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Cairo in April, expect somewhat warmer with lows of 25°C in Honolulu. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Wed) so you can travel to Hilo.
