Honolulu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Discover out-of-the-way places like USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park and Photography Tours. Kids will enjoy Diamond Head State Monument and Sharks Cove. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei), Haleiwa (Waimea Valley & Waimea Bay) and Lanikai Beach (in Kailua). There's still lots to do: take a memorable tour with Tours, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail.

For ratings, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Honolulu driving holiday planning tool.

Aalborg, Denmark to Honolulu is an approximately 24- hour flight. The time zone changes from Central European Standard Time (CET) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -11 hour difference. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Aalborg in July: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around 36°C and lows are around 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) early enough to travel to Lihue.

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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Papakōlea Green Sand Beach and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area. Visit Punalu‘U Beach and 49 Black Sand Beach for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from Kailua-Kona: Queen's Bath (in Princeville), Kealakekua Bay (in Captain Cook) and Honaunau (Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park & Honaunau Bay). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Kanaloa Octopus Farm, get engrossed in the history at Kona Coffee Living History Farm, get interesting insight from Tours, and kick back and relax at Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay).
