Plantation life, a peek into the past
Hawaii's Plantation Village and Museum is an outdoor museum dedicated to sharing the experience,lifestyle, struggles and contributions of Hawaii's plantation workers. Located in Waipahu, at 94-695 Waipahu St. You'll need a car or jump on the bus. It stops right in front of the park.
I found it to be a most enjoyable afternoon away from the bustle of Waikiki. The park centerpieces are thirty authentically replicated, restored, and reconstructed buildings that portray the traditional lifestyles of the plantation familys. You come away with a greater understanding of why Hawaii is the true melting pot of this country.

Temples of all denomination
Typically when you think of Temples maybe you think of Asia or Jewish Temples... well in Honolulu we have BOTH! Jewish Temples as well as Hindu and Buddhist and the like kine temples. Don't forget to visit China Town on Oahu. You will see many temples where folks can stop and pray outside to their favorite diety. My favorite has ALWAYS been Quan Lin, Mother of Mercy. PHOTO: This statue is seen in the outdoor courtyard of the Chinese Cultural Center in Honolulu, located in China Town at River and Beretania. You can buy some joss sticks in the convenience stores right there and say your prayers and be on your merry Way!!!
I like visiting Memorials, but this particular one has special meaning to me ... my uncle fought in the Korean War, and was brought home to be buried here shortly after his death in Korea. The site is kept in excellent condition, and brings about a quiet awe as you walk around the grounds. Visit the website listed below if you want to learn of the history of this National Cemetery. If you're looking for someone in particular's grave site, be sure to stop in the information office to get your computerized map.

Would you believe, go visit the lobby and grounds of the grand old hotels of Waikiki - the Pink Palace (the Royal Hawaiian Hotel - also nicknamed the Pepto Bismol hotel by the tour guides) and the First Lady of Waikiki (the Sheraton Moana Surfrider). These two hotels predate WW I, and have grand open spaces inside and outside the hotel
The flowers are real.

If you care for some peace and quiet after lively Waikiki/Honolulu, visit Byodo Temple on the windward side. A wonderful contemplative mood embraces the temple.
