Honolulu's neighborhoods are microcosms of their origins: Chinatown combines trans-Pacific cultures and has all the Chinese food and culture you could want with a tropical flair, and Downtown highlights the history of Hawaii so visitors see how truly different a state this is than the other 49. The rest of the neighborhoods provide plenty of attractions and commerce to complement Honolulu's natural beauty: dine, shop, mingle, and ogle in and at the trendy boutiques, restaurants, and homes.
