Hawaii is a holiday destination we’ve really grown to love. A ten-hour night flight from Auckland has you landing in Honolulu ready for a stunning Hawaiian morning. With the time difference being nearly 24 hours behind, it leaves you largely jet lag free and ready to hit the ground running (or in our case, shopping and eating). There are so many things to do and if you prefer to go on holiday and laze by the pool doing absolutely nothing, this is also the perfect place for you.

Favourite Eateries in Honolulu

BILLS: Sydney’s superstar eatery has opened in Waikiki, and Bills is a must-visit when you’re there. I would highly recommend the hot cakes and corn fritters. You can’t go wrong with either.

NOBU: The world famous Japanese restaurant chain Nobu is my top pick for fresh fusion Japanese food. Pricy but worth every cent! Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño, shiitake mushroom salad, salmon skin salad, Kurobuta pork belly with spicy miso, Organic chicken Yakimono and Sashimi tacos… So fresh, nourishing and the flavour combinations are out of this world.
