Honolulu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's lots more to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, stroll through Diamond Head State Monument, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Honolulu trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Sydney, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Australian Eastern Standard Time (New South Wales) to Hawaii Standard Time is minus 20 hours. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Sydney in July; daily highs in Honolulu reach 36°C and lows reach 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel to San Francisco.
