Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center.

Plan my Honolulu trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Vienna, Austria to Honolulu is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central European Standard Time (CET) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -11 hour difference. In August, Honolulu is somewhat warmer than Vienna - with highs of °C and lows of °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Mon) so you can travel to Hilo.
