In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Head to Ala Moana Center and Waikele Premium Outletsfor plenty of shopping. Get outdoors at Diamond Head State Monument and Turtle Bay Beach. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Waianae (Swim with Dolphins & Ka'ena Point State Park), Ko Hana Distillers (in Waipahu) and Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Sunset Beach Park, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, take in the dramatic natural features at Makapu'u Point, and buy something for everyone on your list at Windward Mall.

To see photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu online trip itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiports are Daniel K Inouye International Airport and Kahului Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in November, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Makawao.
