With this in-app audio tour, you will explore Honolulu walking through its historical and architectural treasures located in the central part of the main city of Hawaii. Explore the sites representing the city, nation, and Hawaiian royalty history at your own pace! Your journey will start by the ocean, near the famous Aloha Tower. It immediately reminds you to say "Aloha!" when you greet someone or say goodbye in Hawaii. A must-see relic of the ocean port is a 150-year ship. Imagine what it has been through! You will then learn about the royal families of Hawaii. First, you will see King David Kalakaua Building and learn about his profession before he became a king. You will also pass by his home, Iolani Palace, which was restored by caring citizens. A little further, you will meet the first king of Hawaii. Not in person, of course — there is his statue in front of the Aliiolani Hale. Next, you will visit the fascinating church made of coral rocks and functioning since the 1840s. You will see where the first copies of the Hawaiian Bible were printed and stop by Hawaii State Capitol, a building with meaningful architecture and rich history. The islands' culture and traditions are secured by its special art. Hawaii State Art Museum will take you through hundreds of artworks that will help you understand the essence of Hawaii better. Lastly, you will find yourself in Chinatown, where you can explore the connections between the two cultures.

Solid tour but I wish there was actually more detail, specifically about the native history/experience tied to each setting. It was great to see that part of town though and to have a succinct understanding of how each building came to be.
