How to: Honolulu!
We tagged along recently with blogger Love Joo Kim on a mini-vacation to her hometown of Honolulu, Hawaii. She showed us some cool places along the way – and knew all the best spots to show off our collaboration with our friends from Down Under, We Are Handsome.
Insider Tip #1: It only takes 2-3 hours to circle the island. Start at Hawaii Kai and make your way past Hanauma Bay to the North Shore. It’s the best way to get your bearings!
Insider Tip #2: Visit Dole plantation. Yes, the land of the pineapple. At the back, there’s a spot to feed the fishes. Thankfully, they don’t like palm trees.
Insider Tip #3: Hawaiian turtles have claimed Sunset Beach as their hangout spot. Drop by and say hey.
Insider Tip #4: Eat Well. From top left, moving clockwise:
1. Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck: On the only road in North Shore, so you can’t miss it.
2. Fook Lam Seafood Restaurant: Yummy dim sum in North Shore.
3. Blue Hawaii Lifestyle: A store in Ala Moana that serves up delicious and healthy acai bowls.
4. MW Restaurant: A new Asian-fusion restaurant in Ala Moana that switches up their menu weekly.
Insider Tip #5: Take lots of photos!
