By far my favorite attraction in Honolulu. This is truly a beautiful garden. There is a map that you find all of the trees to explore the gardens with.
A nice reprieve from the Honolulu craziness. The minute you open your car door in the parking lot, the smell of Mock Orange trees takes you to another level! Gorgeous orchids, bromeliads in bloom and gingers! A must-see stop for plant geeks!
This is a beautiful garden with tropical plants from around the world. The paths are mostly level, there are many benches to sit upon, and there are two restrooms and a drinking fountain. We went here twice while in the city. It is just north of Chinatown that you can combine with this visit if you so desire.
The garden was nice, but not all the pants were in bloom. Didn't see as many beautiful booms as I wanted.
This place is beautiful and incredibly peaceful. It was never on my short list of places to visit when I've come to Honolulu but I decided to add it to my most recent trip and I completely didn't regret it!

Away from the crowds - a wee oasis. Great to walk and explore - and guided tours are available. You can get a bus from Waikiki and walk - if you get lost, the locals are helpful!

Then he locked us in the park and we were looking at breaking OUT when he came over and... More

However, after a few days you might be tired of the crowds on the beach and the even greater throngs on Kalakaua Street. Fortunately there are... More
The botanical garden is located near downtown Honolulu and costs $5/person. There is a worthwhile docent led tour at 1PM. Our docent, Jessica, was fabulous and made this stop more than worthwhile. The tour lasts a little over 1 hour and is included in the entrance fee. There are picnic tables along the parking lot and a number of folks... More
This lovely botanical garden and arboretum in the heart of the city is a great break from the beach. Bring a picnic lunch as the lawns are as beautiful as the trees.
