I was not impressed. If it were not for a lay over and to see Pearl Harbor missing Oahu would be no big thing. The other islands are so much prettier. To me the downtown area of Oahu is just like being in any city...More

There's lots of things to do in downtown Honolulu -- bars, shopping, eateries or take a walk on the beach. The sea is never far away in Hawai'i -- it's an island, after all. The ubiquitous ABC Shops are everywhere and if you are looking...More

It is an interesting city with Iolani palace, Chinatown, the harbour and the usual high rise office towers. Very quiet on a Sunday with minimal stores open so it is the ideal time for an extended walking tour. During the rest of the week there...More

What a fascinating area of Honolulu this is. Being a photographer, I loved it. You can go from the corner of Bishop and Hotel, a business area, to down Hotel, and there are bars of all kinds. Best to be aware of your surroundings if...More

Just like another downtown of any other city, dirty, noisy, they have a variety of cheap (for Hawaii) restaurants, the majority Asian ones but good and clean. Parking is a nightmare at $2 per hour HOWEVER if you visit during what they call LUNCH hour.....parking...More

Could have been nice if they improve or clean the area or maintain it. It's just full of homeless people lying around sleeping on the floor. Trash all over and smells bad most of the downtown place. Does not look safe at all to walk...More
