"Prices in Honolulu are Greatly Affected by Seasonality"
Author: , a Hotel Planner from , reviewed on 07-Jul-2015
Score of City:
5.0 / 5

Honolulu, situated on the island of Oahu, is both the state capital of Hawaii and the main gateway from the Islands to the rest of world. It is Hawaii’s most popular tourist destination, particularly among Western Americans and Japanese travelers who make up the bulk of Hawaii’s vacation industry. Prices in Honolulu are greatly affected by seasonality, meaning strategic planning of when you travel to this city will greatly affect the overall cost of your trip. Prices for accommodations, flights and tours in Hawaii will traditionally rise starting in mid December and drop in mid April (with the exception of Japan’s “Golden Week” of travel in early May), making winter Hawaii’s busiest season. Prices for a Hawaiian vacation also tend to spike in the summer, mostly due to increased rates in airfare. If it is possible for your group, the very best time to travel to Honolulu is in either the spring or fall, when prices are at their lowest and temperatures are at their most temperate and consistent.

"Don't ever want to leave."
Score 4.0 / 5

I lived there for seven years because my husband was in the military. I love everything about Honolulu, the weather, the people, the food, the beaches and all that Honolulu has to offer. My group of 34 didn't want to board the plane to come home.

, from 15-Jul-2014
"Centralized"
Score 5.0 / 5

Waikiki is the best. Everything you need all in one area.

, from 09-Jul-2014
"Drive Defensively!"
Score 4.0 / 5

Variety of food choices in Honolulu is very good. Traffic is horrific. Drivers are frightening. Use of signal lights and adherence to speed limits are clearly only general guidelines as neither are used / followed with regularity. Yield signs are meaningless.

, from 26-Apr-2014
"Lots to do with wonderful locals."
Score 4.0 / 5

We loved all of the sites we visited such as Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head, Pali Lookout, Matsumoto's Shave Ice, Ala Moana Center (my choir performed on Centerstage which was very fun). We all loved the beautiful weather, especially the tropical breeze. My group had no ground transportation so we made great use of the public buses which worked well (only $1.50 for youth). We also had the opportunity to perform in the Kawaiahao Church in a music festival which was fantastic. On our final night we attended a luau at Paradise Cove which was great. Overall, we really appreciated how friendly the people of Hawaii are, very sincere, kind, and loving.
