Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Start off your visit on the 10th (Fri): explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Keep things going the next day: admire the verdant scenery at Nu’uanu Pali, enjoy the sand and surf at Lanikai Beach, thentake in the spiritual surroundings of Byodo-In Temple, and finally pause for some photo ops at USS Arizona Memorial.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Honolulu trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Toronto, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Traveling from Toronto to Honolulu, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Toronto in May, you will find days in Honolulu are somewhat warmer (°C), and nights are much warmer (°C). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) to allow time to travel to Hanalei.
