Honolulu, Oahu

— 8 nights

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ehukai Beach Park (in Pupukea), Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Ihilani Spa (in Kapolei). There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, enjoy the sand and surf at Sunset Beach Park, and steep yourself in history at Battleship Missouri Memorial.

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

Sydney, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -20 hour difference. While traveling from Sydney, expect somewhat warmer days and warmer nights in Honolulu, ranging from highs of 36°C to lows of 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Tue) early enough to fly to Lihue.

Side Trips

Volcano, Island of Hawaii

— 4 nights
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hilo (Liliuokalani Gardens, Mokupapapa Discovery Center, &more). And it doesn't end there: trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, get outside with Keanakakoi Crater Overlook, stroll through Napau-Makaopuhi Crater Trail, and see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
