Kaiulani Statue

Located at the edge of her fabulous and favorite estate, the statue of Princess Kaiulani pays homage to the aloha she has for her subjects. Historically, several Hawaiian royals maintained homes in Waikiki. None was more elaborate than that of Hawaii's beloved Princess Kaiulani. Her estate encompassed 10 acres as well as being filled with coconut groves ponds, gardens and the islands first Banyan tree. Moreover, there were many peacocks, descendants of which still roam through the Honolulu Zoo just blocks away. Ainahau was demolished to make way for the Princess Kaiulani hotel in 1955, but Hawaii's love for the young Princess still endures. - Lottie Tagupa

Washington Place

This beautiful white historical structure was the home of Captain John Dominis, a rich merchant who built it in the 1840s. Queen Lili'uokalani married his son, John Owen, and also lived here at one time. Up until 2001, it served as mansion to the governor, following which a new residence was built in its vicinity to serve this same purpose. Washington Place is now a museum open to people eager to learn of Hawaii's history. The vintage furniture and elegant architecture are its distinguishing features, and it is definitely worth a visit. Admission is free, but donations by visitors are encouraged. Reservations for touring must be made 48 hours in advance.

Iolani-Palast

Das 1882 von Hawaiis letztem König, David Kalakaua, erbaute, dreistöckige Gebäude ist ein wahrer Leckerbissen, den es zu erkunden gilt.

In den Palastgalerien werden Juwelen und Insignien aus der Zeit des hawaiianischen Königshauses ausgestellt. Führungen werden alle 30 Minuten angeboten wobei Reservierungen ratsam sind.

Chinatown

Honolulu's Chinatown is one of the city's liveliest districts, containing every aspect of a big city within a 15 block area. During the day, plenty of shop owners open their doors for tourists and locals to browse at their leisure. When the shopping is done and your appetite is worked up, fill your belly with Dim Sum or go a bit further out to find Korean, Thai, Filipino, and Japanese restaurants waiting to satiate your hunger. When the day is done, relax at a bar and have a few drinks with some friends, or go out and see a show. Chinatown theaters present everything from stand-up comedy to vaudeville, musicals, silent films, and plays.

USS Arizona Memorial

On December 7, 1941, the battleship USS Arizona was sunk, taking 1100 sailors with it. In 1961, a solemn white monument was erected above the midsection of the ship. The deck of the Arizona lies now six feet (1.83 meters) below the surface of Pearl Harbor and is clearly visible from the monument. Take the shuttle launch from shore to the monument and view the dark shape of a once-great ship with its silent crew. Free guided tours are offered 8a-1p daily. Visit the Battleship Missouri Memorial afterward.

Pearl Harbor

Als der unerwartete militärische Angriff der japanischen Marine auf den amerikanischen Marinestützpunkt Pearl Harbor die gesamte Nation erschütterte, trug dieser zum Eintritt der Vereinigten Staaten in den Zweiten Weltkrieg bei und veränderte damit die Geschichte der Welt, wie sie die Menschen kannten. Der Angriff verursachte in der Folge weltbewegende Ereignisse und machte diesen Marinestützpunkt auf Hawaii zu einem entscheidenden Teil der amerikanischen Geschichte und des amerikanischen Nationalerbes. Heute wird Pearl Harbor von fünf historischen Stätten dominiert, die als feierliche Erinnerungen an diesen Tag in der amerikanischen Geschichte dienen. Das USS Arizona Memorial, das Battleship Missouri Memorial, den USS Bowfin Submarine Museum Park, das USS Oklahoma Memorial und das Pacific Aviation Museum sind alle Teil des Schauplatzes dieses Kriegsereignisses. Insbesondere das USS Arizona Memorial huldigt dem gleichnamigen, gesunkenen Schiff.

USS Missouri (BB-63)

Ein Besuch auf dem Deck dieses imposanten alten Schiffes, das sorgfältig gepflegt und umfassend renoviert wurde, ist alle Mühe wert. Auf der "Mighty Mo" proklamierte General Douglas MacArthur im September 1945 in der Bucht von Tokio das Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs. Das große alte Schlachtschiff liegt jetzt vor dem Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor vor Anker. Man sollte zunächst die Gedenkstätte Arizona besuchen, um einen Eindruck von der vollständigen Geschichte zu erhalten.
