In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

To see maps, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, read our Honolulu trip maker site.

London, UK to Honolulu is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Greenwich Mean Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -10 hour difference. Traveling from London in June, you will find days in Honolulu are a bit warmer (°C), and nights are much hotter (°C). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) early enough to travel to Kailua-Kona.
