Garlands of flowers and hula dancing are part of everyday folklore.

It is true that the 'protected bay' of Honolulu has, since the 18th century, developed into a commercial and cultural center for the Hawaiian islands. The people have, however, remained true to their motto 'Take it easy'. In addition to the University of Hawaii, numerous museums and galleries, the State Capitol is well worth seeing. The Aloha Tower is Honoluluís best known landmark and offers stunning views over the harbor (http://www.alohatower.com). The most magnificent building in the town is the Iolani Palace (http://www.iolanipalace.org) in which the last Hawaiian Queen also resided. Last but not least, the odor of smokehouses and spices in Chinatown gives the former slum district a nostalgic flair.

Waikiki, a district of Honolulu, has advanced as a tourist magnet due to its now-legendary beach. Visitors flock to Kalakaua Avenue. As well as the numerous shopping centers, such as the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center (http://www.shopwaikiki.com), the international marketplace, with its many small shops, is an attractive place for a stroll (http://www.internationalmarketplacewaikiki.com).
