Are you able to purchase the 4 day bus pass at the airport or at the airport port bus stop?
I'm having trouble working out the online bus timetable for Honolulu. I understand that RTE #42 goes passed Pearl Harbor and this route is close to our hotel. I found a bus on the timetable which goes passed timing point 'V' (near our hotel) at 8:13am on a weekday and arrives at timing point 'Q' (Arizona Memorial) at 9:17am but I cannot find a #42 bus leaving Pearl Harbor and returning to Waikiki. Can anyone help me solve my confusion?
Good sushi bars in Waikiki
Now that the International Market has closed, where do you go to buy similar items in that area for a great price?
During Spring Break 2015 (Mar 31st ish), We will fly into Honolulu with our 2 grandchildren and adult children and their spouses to visit Pearl Harbor before going to Kauai for 4 nights. I would like to locate a place to stay on Honolulu that will provide a days experience to famous beach areas. The grandchildren are 10 and 12 and when we went to Hawaii 25 years ago we didn't stay on the beach and our children still remind us about that oversight!! We are making it up to them :-) now and also creating an experience for our 2 granddaughters. I have never been to Pearl Harbor and look forward to the tour. Thank you

I will be arriving in Honolulu from a Cruise Liner and will need to get to my hotel in Wakki (Hilton Hawaiin Village). Can someone give me some adivce please. Many Thanks Angela
My husband and I are stopping off in Honolulu for one night at the end of our honeymoon. We arrive on a Wednesday afternoon at around 4:45 PM. The next morning we have a reservation for an 8:30 AM tour at the Pearl Harbor memorial. Our flight leaves Thursday at 2:15. We were thinking that we would rent a car. I'm debating whether we should stay near the airport so that we can quickly check in on Wednesday evening and then head to Waikiki for the sunset and dinner and walking around etc., and then back to the hotel. The airport location would mean we wouldn't have to get up as early for our 8:30 Pearl Harbor visit since it is closer and also less distance means less traffic. (I've read about the bad Honolulu traffic.) Does that seem like a good bet? Or should we stay in Waikiki, which I imagine would make the evening more enjoyable (and seems to present more, and better, hotel options than near the airport) and just deal with an early morning? From reading other threads, it seems like the downtown Honolulu area is a compromise distance-wise but then you don't get the benefit of being in Waikiki and you still do have to deal with some morning traffic. What do the experts say? My hotel budget is, say, $225-250 max, but as always I'd love to pay less if it's still a reasonable place. I see mixed (and many negative) reviews of the airport hotel options that I'm wondering if Waikiki isn't a better bet?
Transportation from ship to airport & also anywhere to store luggage so we can shop before flight leaves in about 6 hours? Also best place to shop near airport?
There was a little hidden gem of a restaurant that sat with koi ponds all around....I love the old quaint restaurants of the 70's and 80's - do you guys know of any that still exist ???? There used to be one famous for "mile high coconut cream pie" and somewhere on another island way up high in elevation was a turtle plantation restaurant.....I'm looking for some of that.....thank you so much!
Do you recommend staying along the beach front in waikiki or another area for a single woman traveling alone who would like to interact with other travelers?
Hi, Any recommendations for a fun Luau? Is Hula dance a part of the Luau?? We do not want to spend an entire day at the Luau, like at the PCC. We will be staying at the Hilton Village. Heard they have one too. Is it good, or how good is it?? Please suggest.
Hi, can you suggest some places to stay outside of Waikiki? There are four of us travelling and we are looking for a 2 bed apartment with kitchen, close to beach and dining but a bit quieter than Waikiki. Thanks.

Looking for some direction for finding more information on Dangerous and Poisonous Ocean life in the Hawaiian areas.
Most websites I've found are just explaining dangers of current..
Can we walk out of airport and get shuttle transport into waikiki or is it cheaper to book online?
OK I'm getting old so I need something that isn't going to scream special occasion, just something really laid back where I can have some nice food and drink and drown my sorrows. I have been looking at Dukes Canoe Club or Jimmy Buffets. What else should I be considering? We're staying in that part of town at the Royal Garden Waikiki.
Thanks in advance!

Is there somewhere (accessible from Honolulu airport, without hiring a car) that has cabin/bungalow style self contained accomodation near a beach? Thinking of a family vacation, sight seeing, perhaps visit a museum etc with kids, and relaxing on the beach, but don't fancy staying in a big hotel with a view of other big hotels. Any suggestions?
