Information

Honolulu is marked by the diversity of distinct neighbourhoods, cultures and communities.

Each neighbourhood on the island of Oahu offers something unique, whether it is striking contrasts from a tropical playground to an urban island fantasy.

In Waikiki, enjoy the vibrant atmosphere featuring global and local crafts, delicious cuisine and plate lunches, white sand beaches and hula lessons.

Waikiki is home to various restaurants, bars and nightclubs, and most are very close to the Ohia Waikiki Apartment, a popular residence for Global Village Hawaii students.

Other accommodation options close to Waikiki are the Waikiki Vista and Lime Dorm. By bus, it will take about 5-10 minutes.

Downtown Honolulu offers an alternative to Waikiki nightclubs with a more local atmosphere and a unique blend of museums, art galleries, eclectic dining options, the financial district and Chinatown.

Less than an hour away, the Windward coast of Oahu is home to some of the world’s best beaches, such as Lanikai beach. Feel exhilarated and relaxed all at once on Oahu’s legendary North Shore by watching the gigantic waves or catching the beautiful sunset.
