Snorkeling and jetski in Honolulu, Hawaii

Visiting Honolulu is in many ways very much similar to visiting other large cities. Honolulu is a large city with traffic, tall building, and all the pros and cons of a large metropolitan area. I enjoyed Honolulu, but of course the rest of Hawaii is much more interesting, more beautiful and more romantic.

While in Honolulu, there are plenty of things to see. Hanoma Bay is one of the nicest beaches to see. There are thousands of fish everywhere and the entire bay is truly beautiful. Also, when I was there I was snorkling with turtles.

Another nice place to visit is Diamond Head, which is basically a look out over the island. I liked the climb up, even though Hawaii is naturally quite hot. Be sure to bring water when you go.

Finally, go visit Pearl Harbour is another must visit. Nothing exhilarating to report about a place that was witness to one of World War II's most desasterous defeat of the US Pacific fleet. Anyhow, like any of these memorial sites, it's important to go and understand the history and prey for the victims.

While in Hawaii, visit one of the many nice romantic beaches, restaurants, bars etc.

Thanks, Pear harbour is basically a port with warships. The memorial also has the USS Arizona which is still in the water and you can walk around still seeing some oil escape from the belly of the ship. You can only imagine how bad it must have been back then... You can also get on the USS Missouri and get a real good feeling of how humongous these ships really are.

Hey,
This is a good one.
But what should I see on Pearl Harbour and how should I get there?

Honolulu History

Hawaii, the land of palm trees and sunshineThe second half of the 19th century did not prove very favorable for Honolulu (rather, for Hawaii as a whole) politically, although it continued to develop in other areas. The century ended with the abolition of the Hawaiian Monarchy (1893) and eventual annexation of Hawaii by the United States (1898) following a short period when it was an independent republic. (Hawaii was as a US-territory and remained so for 60 years). Honolulu History – 20th Century to Present Times Honolulu’s history in the 20th century was quite interesting – the US-takeover proved quite positive for Honolulu becoming an important US military-base.
