Overview
More
Buzzing with vendors, shoppers, business people and tourists, this sliver of Downtown Honolulu is an exciting mix of history, mystery and fun. Amid the lei stands, noodle factories, hole-in-the-wall eateries and herbal medicine shops, the Oahu Market attracts locals recognizing it for savory selections of fresh meats, fish and produce. Remember to frequently look up from the street level while walking around the district since many of the old buildings that were renovated have retained their original façade and completion date on the second story.

We walked around after lunch hoping to find some interesting buys but we realized within 15 minutes that we were disappointed and wanted to get back to hotel area. Will not go again

We went to Chinatown to visit a specific private gallery. Took the time to walk several of the streets. The buildings are old and the architecture is interesting but sadly many are poorly maintained and a lot of shops are vacant. There are several authentic...More

Wow, if you are expecting a Chinatown experience such as NYC, San Francisco, or Chicago, then DON'T come to Honolulu's Chinatown. It is filled with a lot of open air markets and some souvenir shops sprinkled in between. However, this is a run-down, lower SES...More

We toured Chinatown while on the Waikiki Trolley. It is a small size compared to other Chinatown’s in the US. It was quite dirty with garbage sitting by the curbs everywhere. Because of this we did not eat here or spend much time here. About:...More
