Waikiki, east of downtown Honolulu, is the major tourist destination in Hawaii. With more than half of Hawaii's visitors coming to Waikiki, it is a dense, and crowded at times, place that is packed with all the things a world-class tourist destination should offer.
Waikiki Beach, one of the most crowded in Hawaii, is a classic Hawaiian white sand beach that runs for two miles bordering the district from the southwest. Kapiolani Park, at the southeastern border of the Waikiki district, is a 200-acre park that is home to the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium. To the north, the Ala Wai Canal and the Ala Wai Golf Course border Waikiki and to the east it is bordered by Fort DeRussy Military Reservation.
Shopping opportunities abound in the crowded streets of Waikiki. The International Market Place at the center of Waikiki has numerous shops and merchant stalls offering everything from watches to T-shirts. The Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center on Kalakaua Avenue has more upscale shops and brand name stores. Numerous major brands, like Nike, also have flagship stores in Waikiki.
At nightfall, Waikiki turns into one of the hottest spots in Hawaii with numerous clubs, restaurants and bars open late and packed with tourists. The scene resembles that of the great cities of the east.
Waikiki Hotels range from budget to extremely luxuries. They are mostly located in high-rise buildings with partial or full views of the beach and city. All Waikiki Hotels are within walking distance of all the major attractions in the area.
