This bustling historic district is one of the oldest Chinatowns in the US. With a dramatic history of plague, fires, and disrepair, it has been revitalized over the last decades. These days, the district is a vibrant urban hub for shopping, nightlife, arts and culture, and, of course, eating out.
There's so much fun stuff to do in Chinatown. Find the iconic 1920s Hawaii Theater, locate Buddhist, Taoist, and Shinto shrines, or buy a traditional lei from one of the many shops. Check out the historic 1904 Oahu Market: the building housing the stalls with exotic fruit, meats, and seafood stands as it was originally built. At night, you've got to explore the local bars.
