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've now added Pearl Harbor Tours to your itinerary. Bring the kids along to USS Arizona Memorial and Manoa Falls. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). Next up on the itinerary: explore and take pictures at Diamond Head State Monument, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and kick back and relax at Kapiolani Regional Park.

To find reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu trip planner.

Vancouver, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 10-hour flight. Traveling from Vancouver to Honolulu, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Vancouver in December, things will get warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 32°C and lows about 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona

Heart of the Kona Coast

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.
Kids will enjoy Swim with Dolphins and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area. Get out of town with these interesting Kailua-Kona side-trips: Hilo (Helicopter Tours, Rainbow Falls, &more), Kula Kai Caverns (in Ocean View) and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Kilauea Iki Trailhead, Devastation Trail, &more). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Papakōlea Green Sand Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, steep yourself in history at Puukohola National Historic Park, and take some stellar pictures from Pololu Valley Lookout.

For maps and other tourist information, read our Kailua-Kona tour planner.

Traveling by flight from Honolulu to Kailua-Kona takes 4 hours. December in Kailua-Kona sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
