In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Venture out of the city with trips to Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Diamond Head State Monument, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

To find photos, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip planner.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Honolulu is an approximately 26-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 7 hours traveling from Rio de Janeiro to Honolulu. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Rio de Janeiro in July: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around °C and lows are around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can travel to Lahaina.
