Honolulu airport to Kailua  (3 Answers)

Hi, we have hired a car which we will be picking up on our arrival into Honolulu airport. We will be travelling to Kailua. Is the best route the H3 or 63? I hope that makes sense! Is one more scenic although after an overnight flight from Australia we might be better to leave the 'scenic' until the next day! Will we need a gps or will a map and my print out of google maps and maps in general suffice? We will be travelling around the coast, using Kailua as our base for a week. We will use the car to get to Waikiki and will return the car the next day.
Thanks Sylv

Transportation/car rental  (1 Answer)

Hi - cruising May 16-23 and then staying at Turtle Bay 23-26. I will need ground transport from the airport to the cruise terminal and then from the cruise terminal to the rental car. Prefer private transport but more importantly reliable and quick. Some people say just wait til I get there and others say its important to have it all set up before I go. Prices are all over the map and reviews are too. Any advice would be appreciated.

Where else to stay in Oahu  (3 Answers)

Hi. We have booked to stay in Oahu for 13 nights. We have been to Maui before and are quite happy just to explore Oahu this time. We will spend at least half the time in Waikiki as we like to shop and bike and intend to do a tour or two. We would like to spend 4-5 nights or so somewhere else on the island. We are in our fifties but are fit and love the beach, snorkeling and walks.
I have looked at Ko Olina which looks lovely but maybe too resorty for what we want this trip. We could visit though as i have read the lagoons are lovely. I have been looking at Haleiwa area. Is this area really for young people who want to surf? Is the road a good one to travel on? We are happy to hire a car to get around. Any other suggestions for somewhere else to stay on Oahu would be very welcome. Thanks

Best sport bar to watch NBA All-Star game  (3 Answers)

Hi guys,

I'll be on Oahu on Feb 15th, when NBA All-Start game commences in NY at 3:30pm.
Could you please advice a sport bar, somewhere in Honolulu or Kailua, where I can watch it live? It will be broadcasted on TNT channel.

From the web-search, RoundTable Pizza and Armbar Sports Bar and Grill seems good. Any better options?
Your help is much appreciated, I absolutely cannot afford missing this game.

Thanks,
Oleg

Help with scouting photography locations.  (1 Answer)

Hello all,

I am visiting Oahu in December for Christmas and staying in Waikiki for a week. I will have rental car through my stay. I am planning to do some good photography during my visit. I am mainly interested in nature/landscape photography. I am looking for suggestions that might guide my stops to get some really good shots.

I know you can pull out at almost any good view point and snap some great pictures. I am trying to get some info from locals and pro/amateur photographers, regarding non-conspicuous and non-touristy locations with great scenery.

Thank you.

Kayaking to Chinaman Hat/Kaneohe Bay Sandbar/offshore Islands in Dec?  (2 Answers)

First of all, sorry if I sound ignorant about terms like surf/wind/tide etc., Just learning the basics as I am planning my trip.

We are novice kayakers (kayaked once or twice before in calm river/creek). Kayaking to off shore islands seem like am awesome experience. We are very interested in kayaking to one of the off shore islands and spending a good part of the day. Most of these islands are on the windward side and how is the ocean during late December? Is it reasonable (even during low tide, when the surf can be high with heavy winds?) to plan for one of these kayaking trips in late December? Any info is highly appreciated.

Thanks.

Crime and family safety  (3 Answers)

We don't want to stay in Waikiki, looking for a more relaxed vacation, like Haleiwa or the North shore area. But, we have not had a lot of experience staying outside of Waikiki. We are looking for something for our two small children, their grandmother, and us. We want to be sure to stay in a safe neighborhood, etc, and we're hoping for a vacation rental very close to the beach. Safe swimming a must too. Thanks for any help you might be able to give.

travel time from Ihilani resort to the Ala Moana hotel for 8:30 tour?  (2 Answers)

I will be staying at the JW Marriott Ihilani next week and have a tour on Thursday that meets at the Ala Moana Hotel on Mahukona Street at 8:30 a.m.

What time should I leave Ihilani to get to my tour on time? I have to find parking too. I know with no traffic it's 30 minutes but I have heard traffic can be bad. Would 7:00 a.m. be early enough?

Any advice appreciated!

Hotel Recommendations for Waikiki June 2014  (5 Answers)

Hi!
My soon to be husband and I will be spending the last 5 days of our 4 week USA honeymoon in Waikiki before flying back to Aus. I am a self confessed hotel snob... I'm trying to select a hotel on the Waikiki Beach that's in a good location, with a decent pool and comfortable (modern if possible rooms) alot of what I've found is extremely expensive but quite dated.. The travel agent has explained that Waikiki is busy year round so they don't often have time to update their decor. From what I can tell the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach is one of the most recommended hotels and in the best location, but is definitely in need of a refurb? Can anyone recommend something you might think will suit? Or is anyone aware of any hotels doing renovations prior to our arrival end of June next year? Thanks!

Pearl Harbor /USS Arizona  (19 Answers)

Is it feasible to book a tour that picks us up from our hotel or should we take our car? Or is there another transportation mode to get there from the Hilton Waikiki? This is for 2 children and 6 adults (4 of which are seniors).

I've also read somewhere that you are not allowed to bring your back packs, or purses into these places? Is that true?

Thank you.
Joanie

Bus to the Dole Plantation?  (5 Answers)

Hi everyone,

My boyfriend and I are going to be in Waikiki next week, and we were planning on visiting the Dole Plantation. We want to go by bus, but I'm a little confused as to the bus to take to get there. The Dole Plantation website says to take bus 52 - but it seems to be a little out of date since it also mentions taking the bus costs 2$, and from what I've read right now it's actually 2.50$.

TheBus website, in its "shopping" section, also says bus 52 will take us to the Plantation, but the route map doesn't look like it does, and Google Transit tells me to take bus 55 (which follows the whole Windward Coast before getting to the Plantation, so time-wise, it's definitely a bummer).

Can anybody confirm whether bus 52 still stops at the Dole Plantation?
