Honolulu – one of the most remote cities in the world – has lured the intrepid to its glorious sandy shores for centuries. But peel back the picture-postcard images of hula girls, tiki cups and floral garlands and you’ll find a dynamic urban centre nestled in one of the most beautiful landscapes on Earth. This city has long captured the hearts of the adventurous – now it’s your turn to sample its heady charms.
The Monocle Travel Guide series reveals their favourite spots in each city, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best streets for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks that take you away from the crowds and their favourite places to eat, be it tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
