Honolulu enjoys warm temperatures all year round, and the water is also at least 24 °C all year round. Surfers will find ideal conditions between November and February. Those who want to experience Hawaiian culture and see hula dancing should visit the city in early March for the free "Honolulu Festival" or in September for the street festivals as part of the "Aloha Festivals".

Cabs take vacationers from the Honolulu airport to the hotel resorts in the Waikiki district in 15 minutes. One way costs about $40 to $45 plus about $0.50 per piece of luggage. Considerably cheaper is the SpeediShuttle shuttle bus, which costs around $15.50 for a transfer from Honolulu Airport. Public transportation with TheBus is not recommended for this route due to strict luggage regulations and a long trip of at least 50 minutes.
However, to get around within the city, buses are very suitable because the route network leads to all points of tourist interest. A ticket for adults costs around $2.50 and must be paid appropriately. For a longer stay, a ticket for four consecutive days is worthwhile and costs about $35.
