The Hawaiian capital of Honolulu is the cultural center of the island of Oahu - the most populous and popular of the Hawaiian Islands, dubbed "The Gathering Place." So what is it that draws so many people to these sunny tropical shores? Great resorts and all the attractions of a major city are found in this thoroughly modern, exotic, and familiar place, yet over 90% of the land is still unpopulated! This means an unmatched diversity of experiences from luaus under the stars and natural adventures, to historical sightseeing, and the best shopping in the Pacific.
Scuba dive the lion's share of Hawaii's wrecks, visit Iolani Palace - the only royal palace on US soil - see infamous Pearl Harbor, boisterous Chinatown, the world-famous ocean playground of Waikiki, and hike the Diamond Head crater. Beyond the city, the Koolau Mountains harbor lush forests and waterfalls before sloping downto meet the pristine beaches on Oahu's windward coast. And, of course, surfers know that Oahu has some of the world's best spots to hang ten, including Sunset Beach and the north shore Pipeline. Join the gathering in Honolulu and get the Aloha Spirit!
