In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You've now added Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives to your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Lanikai Beach and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Explore hidden gems such as Koko Crater Railway Trail and Waimea Valley. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Pupukea (Banzai Pipeline & Sharks Cove), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park, Waimea Bay, &more) and Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, walk around Lanikai Pillboxes, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, and get great views at Nu’uanu Pali.

To see more things to do, maps, ratings, and tourist information, read Honolulu tour itinerary planner.

Traveling by flight from Poipu to Honolulu takes 2.5 hours. May in Honolulu sees daily highs of 34°C and lows of 25°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
