Stayed with another couple on a nice sweet 25 floors up beachside looking at the rainbow tower and the ocean. Bill staff was fabulous. Took a taxi from the airport it was a stretch limo same price as a regular taxi! Tang Lee. Traffic was ridiculous. Ended up getting a Holo Holo card and riding the bus most of the time. Easy to get around that way. We went to queen Illiane‘s palace, The Bishop Museum, The farmers market passed the Alawana shopping center on Saturday fabulous. best garlic shrimp ever. Salt market just down from there was great. How to get reservations for Diamondhead hike , reservations ahead for Dukes at least two weeks to a month! Reservations for Hanauma Bay now! All the entertainment ranches for ATVs need reservations at least a month out! Leonards bakery is still the best with Malasadas original. Fireworks every Friday at Hilton were worth it. Free. Very large crowds. Do the stand up paddle boards and the kayaks you won’t be disappointed. We got C kayaks at the blue hot just passed Hilton and saw 5 turtles right off shore!! Check out the healing stones by Duke’s statue on Waikiki.
Then learn more at the Bishop Museum about them. Make reservations for an Outrigger Canoe way before you go. If you go to Polynesian culture center make sure you have a ride back because the buses end early!! And Ubers don’t go out there late!!! Waikiki brewing is great, shout out to server “Justice”. IHOP by Hilton rocks. Go to Lampert‘s bakery if you want cinnamon rolls at seven in the morning by Hilton or they will be gone by eight! All the food was great all the people were wonderful just way too many of us tourists! Aloha everyone.
