I have been coming to Oahu for years and have always included and enjoyed a day out in Chinatown. Not so much anymore. While the area has been gentrified to an extent the sketchiness of the area has tripled. The homeless population has basically overtaken...More

There is nothing special about the Honolulu Chinatown. It's actually quite easy to miss if you are driving around and not paying attention. Aside from a few buildings with Chinese architecture, there is very little that screams "Chinatown". There was a nice, covered walk that...More

Lots of small shops with general Asian merchandise as well as edibles...prices can vary so it pays to check out a couple shops...every shop has some real bargains that a shop next to it might be charging more.

we went on Bus # 2 usually. I also think that Bus 13 also passes by China town. However, most of the times we were on a rental car. The rental mopeds is usually the easiest to go around Oahu.
