In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
On the 17th (Mon), see the interesting displays at Iolani Palace, browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, then enjoy the sand and surf at Ala Moana Beach Park, and finally get great views at Puu Ualakaa State Park.

For ratings, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Honolulu day trip planning site .

Incheon, South Korea to Honolulu is an approximately 15-hour combination of car and flight. You'll gain 19 hours traveling from Incheon to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Incheon in February; daily highs in Honolulu reach 32°C and lows reach 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.

Keep things going the next day: cast your line with a fishing tour and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.
