    Luggage on TheBus

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you have big luggage the bus driver wont let you in the bus, you can only carry on luggage that can fit under the passenger´s seat or on passenger´s lap.

    So have this in your mind when your going with the bus.

    Red Light District (Kuhio Ave.)

    by GuthrieColin Written Mar 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When in Waikiki at night be aware that Kuhio ave. is crawling with women soliciting sex. I visited Oahu when i was 17 and was nearly kidnapped right out from my parents sides. Poor me right, but seriously it is very irritating saying i have no money every 10 steps you take.
    I find it almost Ironic that Kuhio ave. is the red light area in Waikiki. Prince Kuhio, for whom the road was named was a member of the Hawaiian royalty then moved into US politics and became a congressmen. In 1919 he purposed the first bill to make Hawaii a state, he also worked to make Hawaii Volcanoes National park on the big island. The most ironic of his accomplishments was that he fought for women’s right to vote. Now his namesake street is used for prostitution.

    Adult Video/Strip Clubs

    If you are travelling with young children, or just find pornography offensive, it will probably be best to steer clear of Kapiolani Drive in Honolulu/Waikiki. There seemed to be an innordinate number of strip clubs, and other places of ill-repute on this street.

    On the other hand, if this is your gig... by all means, head on over. You will have plenty to choose from on this street.

    The after New Year celebration disaster

    by OlenaKyiv Written Feb 12, 2007

    The New Year tourists’ fireworks are not only dangerous on New Year eve, but also on mornings after the celebration, because all beach (sand, water, walk paths) is full with garbage of burn paper, metal, chemicals. It was very painful for me to see this damage to the nature.

    Avoid the NEXT DOOR nightclub for personal safety

    by ChadSteve1975 Written Nov 13, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While in Hawaii myself and a couple of other travellers decided to go out clubbing.

    Unfortunately during the night we took a cab into the more local scene towards Honolulu's Chinatown area.

    Anyway after having a dance and drink inside the NEXT DOOR nightclub we exited.

    That's when I got assaulted by someone outside the club. And the staff assisted processes which resulted in the assault. The hostess girl jokingly said 'No Photos' in front of a guy who was or wasn't a part of the security (he was chatting to the hostess). Anyway this guy stalked me up the street 50 yards and then violently attacked me for taking a photo. I got a broken nose as a result of the attack.

    The staff at the club do not care for patron safety. They allowed the guy to stalk me just up the street after he made violent comment to me outside the club. They also acted negligently to make a comment which was interpreted by the thug as authority to make the attack.

    If anyone can assist in the police investigation please contact me for police report details.

    This was the photo which resulted in my attack Me and my broken nose. The result of the attack

    Super speedy Police Cars!

    Check out this for a Police Car! Only in Waikiki would you find such an expensive police vehicle.

    There were two really nice, sporty police cars outside the Waikiki Beach police station, so I just had to get a photo.
