Chris O's City Tips

  • Be on the lookout for Hawaiian grown treats. The islands are home to some of the best produce, coffee, and seafood in the world.
  • Honolulu traffic can be a nightmare. Expect delays during normal rush hour times and weekend nights.
  • Staying in Honolulu? "TheBus" is an easy and affordable way to get around town and much of the island of Oahu, hitting some of the best beaches along the way.
  • A little "aloha spirit" goes a long way anywhere — especially in Hawaii.

    Just 20 minutes away from Waikiki, Hawaii’s largest open air flea market is a fun place to search for island treasures and hunt for bargains.

    To discover the distinctive history, arts and culture of the Hawaiian people, there is no better place to visit than the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum – the designated State Museum of Natural and Cultural History for Hawaii. It’s also a fantastic place for distinctive island-style retail therapy with some of the best and highest quality souvenirs, crafts and cultural items available in the Islands.
