Honolulu Reviews

Honolulu is a beautiful city and a famous area for tourism. The most popular location in Honolulu is Waikiki. There you will find the wonderful beaches, restaurants, and much more. The Ala Moana Mall is a popular mall located right across from the Ala Moana beach park. The mall contains an awesome gallery of shopping stores, restaurants and entertainment. Something I would love to change about Honolulu is the amount of homeless. Many homeless live in the town and it has become very noticeable all around town. In addition, the traffic can be very rough especially during rush hour. Despite the negatives Honolulu is a place where ohana (family) is always first. I love the beautiful island and the countless activities such as: kayaking, hiking, camping, paddle boarding, scuba diving, bowling, ice skating, roller blading, go karting and much more that is available to everyone that is on the island. The greatest of them all is the beautiful view all around. Aloha!

I love Hawaii. I enjoy its diverse scenery. The weather is perfect. Cool temperatures all year round. Cool tradewinds makes you feel comfortable. I enjoy the beachfront acres. They are alive with experiences that will turn into treasured memories. I also love Lu’au’s. They offer tropical drinks and a shower of flowers. I love the traditional arts and crafts. I find myself also taking part in the Hawaiian games, plus hula. I also enjoy the hukilau – pulling giant fishing nets from the sea to the rhythms of a conch shell and island chants. Wow! Great feeling! I encourage everyone from all walks of life to experience the exceptional on the Island of Oahu.
How many people have the opportunity to live in paradise! I am so grateful to have been able to be raised in a culture and society that cultivates and is centered around this idea of ALOHA. Families extend pass blood relatives as everyone is viewed as apart of your "ohana." Honolulu is the hub of city life on Oahu. I provides the perfect balance of outdoor activities, healthy living, a melting pot of diversity ranging from food, people, etc, and provides numerous activities. There is no other place in the world I would rather be.
