In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Mon): explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, then kick back and relax at Ala Moana Beach Park, and then get active on the water at Rainbow Scuba Hawaii. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue): stroll around Fort DeRussy Beach Park, examine the collection at US Army Museum of Hawaii, then go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Kapiolani Regional Park.

To plan Honolulu vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Toronto, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of shuttle and flight; or do a combination of ferry and flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Toronto in September, things will get a bit warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 36°C and lows about 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
