Waikiki - United States

Waikiki is a neighborhood of Honolulu, in the City & County of Honolulu, on the south shore of the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Waikiki Beach is the shoreline fronting Waikiki and one of the best known beaches in the world. The neighborhood extends from the Ala Wai Canal on the west and north, to Diamond Head on the east. The name means spouting water in Hawaiian for springs and streams that fed wetlands that once separated Waikiki from the interior.

"Waikiki is part of Honolulu. That is a nice hotel. Personally I would go to Maui or Kauai. Most people like Maui but I prefer Kauai. Waikiki is pure tourist. I lived in Honolulu for 3 years."

"Waikiki is on the Island of Oahu , the city is Honolulu , just up the coast you have Pearl Harbour, and the Kodak village , Marine Cemetery , and pineapple field after field , do not forget the volcano , nice place to be if you can afford it , was there with the forces."
"Hey wind walker, Yes as the two above me stated Waikiki is in Honolulu. The Hilton is a great place to stay but is a little bit of a walk to the main strip of Waikiki. Don't get me wrong it is def worth staying at. Their are other hotels on the strip that are closer and nice too. I put a list of cool things on Oahu for a couple other people and you might benefit from this list too. Hope this information is helpful. Have a great trip! Here's a cool website to check out and here's my 2 cents!........... I am a nature nut and hawaii is a great place to enjoy our beautiful planet! I put this together earlier but wanted to share it with you cause there are some things here that will help you out! Hawaii is definately worth it! I just can't get enough of that place! I have been 6 times and I have found enough on Oahu to do that i haven't even ventured out to the other islands yet! Here are some things in Waikiki and around the island to do;Dukes is def cool and right on the beach, and if you want to dance you can head over to scruples. If you like to drink then do it in your room cause it is way way to expensive at the clubs. Clubs are generally 21+, but you can get into some of the hotel beach bars prob.There are a ton of eating places down on the strip but the real hawaii is out of town. Take the bus or drive up to manoa and experience the rainforest and a natural waterfall! Take a trip to the north shore and go to waimaia valley and see some of the most spectacular fauna anywhere! If you adventurous hike along the ridges and see paradise from 4000 feet! I did that and loved every second of it..ok well it was more like 8 hours of it but anyway..lol. Diving and snorkeling are pretty awesome too! Hanuama bay is touristy and with good reason. You are guaranteed to see tons of fish and have a nice afternoon at a beautiful beach! Diving can be done just off shore and runs around 100 bucks for 2 tanks and you don't need to be experienced. Not far out of town you can jetski or parasail. Wouldn't really bother with the jetskiing cause they have too many rules in hawaii but the parasailing is something you should atleast try once. After that it gets kind of boring. In town the international market place is def cool and worth strolling through...a tip..go to all the kiosks and then go back and don't be affraid to barter..that's how it works there! On the weekend a really cool thing to do it go to aloha stadium for a huge flea market!!! I mean huge the tents go all around the stadium and everything you find for suviners in waikiki you will find there for way i mean way cheaper!! Oh one last thing, you have to go to a luau and the paradise cove luau is the best. oh crap...just thought of something else that will help you out. Go to Entertaiment.com and buy the book for hawaii and it will give you so many discount coupons it will pay for it self right away. I did and it worked great. Don't forget that part..really do it you won't be sorry. Many 2-1 coupons on dinners in waikiki which is really expensive.I have been to hawaii 6 times now and would love to live there. I hope you make it cause you won't forget it! Aloha! Some more stuff: Must See Attractions Paradise Cove Luau - Best on the Island (get entertainmetn coupon" Polynesian Cultural Center - North Shore ( can catch show here) Make sure you get the "entertainment coupon" Diamond Head - Cause everyone's doing it Waikiki- Can't go to hawaii and miss the strip Manoa Falls - An easy hike with views and feel of the jungle and it's free! Hanuama Bay - Best tourist snorkeling in the islands! Drive the Pali Highway and go to the lookout Makiki Heights drive - Tourists don't find this gem and it's amazing! MUST SEE. Check your map to get to Makiki Heights. Great views of the island Restaurants: There are tons of restaurants in Waikiki. If you are young and like to drink then drink b/4 you go out! The Pacific Beach Hotel has drink specials all week long and there a good deal. There are Mai Tai specials all over but DIXIES has the screamin Mai TAi which comes in a 32 oz glass and is about 6 bucks!!! Good Eats there too! For cheaper eats go outside of town over towards the Kaneohe side. If you do want to eat in Waikiki then i would highly recommend that you go to and buy the book for hawaii. This coupon book will save you a ton on the island! Seriously everytime i go i get the book and use all the 2-1 deals in it! Check ebay for it too sometimes you can get it dirt cheap! Hotels; Best hotel for the money is the Ocean Resort Hotel on the east end of the strip. Very close to the beach, decent rooms, service is good and you will pay under a 100 a night for most rooms and the parking is much cheaper than the other hotels! Have a great trip your gonna love it!"
luludoodie :
"Don't waste your time going there for 1-2 weeks. Think of Torremolinas or Benidorm, but more expensive to get there and severe jet lag both ways! Been to all 5 main islands (live in UK) and Honolulu/Waikiki is commercial tourist trap US at it's worst. Honolulu is wall to wall high rise hotels and a strip of (Waikiki) beach! You will probably arrive by air at Honolulu, stay 1-2 nights and go and see Pearl Harbour, perhaps the pineapple fields etc. That's it! The other island are much better, calmer, more romantic, better scenery and gives you a chance to see some of the good side of rural America."
Yeri M :
"Stay away from waikiki. Not only is it a tourist trap it is also more of a single scene... Find another island for your honeymoon."
Grianagh :
"The Hilton is a great place to stay and you can walk or take a bus to Waikiki beaches. For a honeymoon stay at the Hilton. Make Waikiki a daily exploration you won't be disappointed. Congratulations"
stevo1313 :
"Hilton Hawaiian Village is at far end of Waikiki. A short walk. The resort really looks nice. I stayed at the Halekulani."
Gloria :
"Waikiki Beach near the city of Honolulu. the Hilton Hawaiian is near the beach, I haven't stayed there myself, but I have stayed at the Pacific Beach Hotel four out of six times during my stays on Oahu. The Pacific Beach Hotel is right across the street from Waikiki Beach, transportation is close at hand. There are two towers there. The Beach Tower, and the Oceanarium Tower. We stay in the Oceanarium Tower at least the 12th floor (partial oceanview facing Diamond Head) or higher up. You will get the tradewinds and a really good view of Diamond Head and the ocean. A really great room (king-sized bed) is on the 22nd floor of the Oceanarium Tower. I believe it is room 2268 (if I am not mistaken.). It is a really wonderful room and very romantic."
richard c :
"If you are going to pay that much for a hotel ( the Hilton is not cheap) a better positioned hotel is The outrigger Waikiki resort. It also is right on the beach with a pool deck overlooking the ocean but you are right in the thick of the action. The hotel has a great bar Dukes Canoe bar which is possibly the best in Waikiki. Having said all that dont stay in Waikiki for more than 4 or 5 days because its just like Benidorm, Catch an Aloha Airlines flight ( check website) for as little as $39 each way on promotion to a real paradise like Kauai. Oahu cannot come near Kauai for scenery and beaches , think of Jurrasic Park and South Pacific, both filmed here and you will know what i mean. Have a good trip."
miss lovley :
"wakiki is right by honolulu and i stayed at the hyatt right across from wakiki beach and its a beautiful resort/hotel."
Becky R :

Waikiki Beach is on the Pacific Ocean, and Mauna Kea is one of Hawaii's volcanoes.

drwer2 :
"because the beach sits under more air than the top of the mountain. the total amount of air above you gives rise to the air pressure. the higher you go, the less air there is above you. formula is density x height = pressure units: lb/cf x ft = lb/sf easy"
Norrie :
"The Atmosphere, due to the height of Air (which has mass), is exerting a pressure of 1 atmosphere on the Earth's surface at sea level. If you are up a mountain, as you climb, there's Less atmosphere above you. The pressure therefore, must be lower at higher altitudes."
ekena :

hotel located close to international market in waikiki hawaii.wonder if the hotel has closed or has changed phone number.

zudmelrose :
"Is it an Ohana hotel? If so I think that is an Outrigger brand and you might look them up on the internet"
Joan R :
"Here is their website, hope it helps you"

Mark Twain once called Hawaii "the loveliest fleet of islands that lies anchored in any ocean". There aren't many people that would disagree: Hawaii's distinct natural beauty has been memorably captured in many a film, from 'South Pacific' to Disney's 'Lilo and Stitch'.

Today Yalnig and Bruce talk about how long it takes to get to Hawaii from mainland destinations. We get this question quite often and thought since a lot of folks are coming here for XMAS it would be a good idea to cover this topic. They also had a chance to to stay at the Sheraton Waikiki Friday night and give a review of the property and also con
