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 Sea Life Park Hawaii (in Waimanalo), Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Waimea Valley (in Haleiwa). There's lots more to do: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial.

For other places to visit, topicsMoreInfo.option.ratings, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Honolulu online trip maker .

Expect slightly colder temperatures when traveling from New Delhi in July; daily highs in Honolulu reach 36°C and lows reach 28°C.
