My daughter, Heidi, took me to afternoon tea at the Moana Surfrider hotel. It's a beautiful historic old hotel right in the center of Waikiki Beach.
One afternoon I walked to the Ala Moana mall and these ladies were performing a traditional Japanese dance.
We drove up the east side of the island and toured the Tropical Nut Farm. Hawaii produces 80% of the worlds macadamia nuts. It was a fun tour seeing some movie sets from old movies.
There's lots to see on the island of Oahu. Pearl Harbor is a historic site not to be missed. There's also LOTS of high end shopping* in Waikiki; Bvlgari, Cartier, Rolex, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, on and on. And there are numerous tours you can take. My favorite one from a couple of years ago was the island tour. It's an all day bus tour that takes you all around the island of Oahu
I hope you have enjoyed this little bit of paradise. Honolulu is approximately a five hour fight from the west coast of the United States. I booked this trip via Costco Travel and it included the flights, room and airport transfers.
Until next time, ALOHA
*I'm not a high end shopper..it's fun to see the items in person that you see in the fancy fashion magazines. But, my heart is at TJ Maxx, haha.
I almost forgot, please remember to stop by Handmade Harbour.
