A great stop-over en route to Hawaii is the Canadian city of Vancouver, with its beautiful backdrop of ocean and mountains, great cuisine, shopping and sightseeing opportunities. With a flight time of around 6 hours and clearance of US customs in Canada you can arrive into Honolulu very easily.
Once there you can enjoy this South Pacific paradise, one of America’s vibrant and leading cities. Enjoy soaking up the sun at the famous Waikiki beach and try your hand at surfing, pay your respects at the moving Pearl Harbor memorial or climb up the steps of Diamond Head Crater and enjoy the views of the city below. If you fancy exploring more of Oahu then put the Polynesian Cultural Center on your list. It has villages and exhibits representing the island cultures of Hawaii and Polynesia and gives an excellent overview of the culture of this fascinating part of the world.
Vancouver 3 nights and Honolulu 7 nights
