In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step off the beaten path and head to Lanikai Beach and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Shop till you drop at Ala Moana Center and Honolulu Cookie Company Hyatt Regency Waikiki. Venture out of the city with trips to Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Kayaking & Canoeing), Kapolei (Dolphin & Whale Watching & Ko Olina Lagoons) and Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo). There's lots more to do: take a memorable tour with Tours, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, and find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

For traveler tips, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu vacation builder site .

Sydney, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Sydney to Honolulu is minus 20 hours.
