The largest city of the far-flung and gorgeous state of Hawaii, Honolulu is a slice of paradise. It’s home to one of the coolest Chinatowns in the world, where you can eat your way through a delicious selection of juicy island fruits and the freshest seafood, spiced and served in the Cantonese or Thai style.
So much of the charm of Honolulu actually lies in its natural surroundings. For incredible views, hike to the rim of Diamond Head, the iconic dormant volcano that provides a dramatic backdrop of the city’s skyline. Or, take a walk down the Manoa Falls trail to experience Hawaii’s dense tropical forests. You’ll be rewarded with a breathtaking waterfall at the end of the trail. Make your way to popular Hanauma Bay, a picture-perfect cove protected by high green ridges and boasting the island’s best snorkeling. This area is a marine sanctuary, so there is always plenty to see just beneath the waves.
