Explore Oahu's Chinatown

Explore the vibrant tapestry of Honolulu's Chinatown, an energetic district nestled on the western side of the city's financial hub. Spanning the streets of North Beretania and Nu’uanu and reaching towards the harbor, this historic enclave boasts a dynamic Chinese American community.

As one of the oldest Chinatowns in the U.S., the area pulsates with a diverse culinary scene. From delectable Chinese Dim Sum to Vietnamese and Malaysian delights, the restaurants here cater to an array of international palates. Wander through the lively Oahu Market, where Maunakea, Oahu, and Aloha marketplaces showcase exotic fruits, seafood, and Chinese vegetables.

Chinatown is not only a culinary haven but also a cultural treasure trove. Explore shrines and temples that transport you to historic Japan and China. The community's roots trace back to the 19th century when Chinese laborers, initially working on Hawaii's sugar plantations, settled in the area post-contract expiration, becoming thriving merchants.

Embark on an enriching 2.5-hour walking tour presented by the Chinese Chamber of Commerce Hawaii every Tuesday. This immersive journey includes stops at gift shops, temples, and restaurants, providing insights into the rich heritage of Chinatown. Contact CCCH at (808) 533 3181, located at 8 South King St, Honolulu, 96813, to delve into this cultural odyssey.
