In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your inner history buff will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Do some cultural sightseeing at Battleship Missouri Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery-Pacific. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). Next up on the itinerary: browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, kick back and relax at Ala Moana Beach Park, stroll through Manoa Falls, and look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

For traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu itinerary planner.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Honolulu is an approximately 22.5-hour flight. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Honolulu, you'll gain 18 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in December: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around 32°C and lows are around 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Wed) to allow time to travel to Lihue.
