The name Waikiki conjures up what might seem like cliched images of sandy beaches, tanned surfers, chilled mai tais, and hula dancers moving to the unique sound of the ukulele.
Well, it is actually all of those things and so much more! Located next to the central business district of Honolulu on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, Waikiki is a picture perfect travel destination. In the 1800s, beautiful Waikiki Beach and its endless stretch of white sand and turquoise water was reserved for the exclusive use of royalty. Today, it’s home to hundreds of tourist resorts and high-rise hotels, blingy boutiques, and verdant tropical gardens. At night, flaming torches cast flickering shadows as happy holidaymakers dine in the precinct’s many bistros and high-end restaurants.
This Waikiki city guide is packed with ideas for things to see and do. Enjoy your visit.
