Honolulu travel tips

1) When booking a hotel in Honolulu, pay attention to taxes included

When booking accommodation, carefully study the amount of taxes specified or appearing at the last stage of the booking. Often, they exceed the rental price a couple of times. In addition, when searching for accommodation through Airbnb, make sure that you are not offered a tent in the garden or a mattress in the car trunk (Campervan Rental).

2) Visit the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, the largest museum in Hawaii

Bishop Museum is the main natural and cultural institution in the Pacific district. It is known for its research, libraries, archives, and rich collections, in particular, a collection of Polynesian cultural and scientific exhibits. Here you can explore the huge entomological collection, which has more than 13.5 million exhibits.

3) Climb the Koko Crater Railway Trail – there are 1,050 steps to spectacular views of the Honolulu coastline

The stairs of the Koko crater are essentially the railway tracks for the military tram, which brought stuff and personnel to lookouts and bunkers during the Second World War. Therefore, the trail is not easy and sometimes risky, perhaps a guide will be useful. Those who are not ready for the ascent can have a good time inside the crater, in the stables and the Botanical Garden, famous for its cacti and succulents.
