Overview
More
Buzzing with vendors, shoppers, business people and tourists, this sliver of Downtown Honolulu is an exciting mix of history, mystery and fun. Amid the lei stands, noodle factories, hole-in-the-wall eateries and herbal medicine shops, the Oahu Market attracts locals recognizing it for savory selections of fresh meats, fish and produce. Remember to frequently look up from the street level while walking around the district since many of the old buildings that were renovated have retained their original façade and completion date on the second story.

Unlike other China town in North America, Chinatown Honolulu does not offer much. I was expecting good Chinese restaurant or a place to buy cheap souvenirs, but there is none. It is not much to see.

It is a must visit to understand the ethnic and cultural heritage of Hawaii! Most businesses close by 3:00 p.m.! Food court is very diverse. A must visit is Sun Chong on Hotel Street which has the largest collection of chinese snacks,,
