Buzzing with vendors, shoppers, business people and tourists, this sliver of Downtown Honolulu is an exciting mix of history, mystery and fun. Amid the lei stands, noodle factories, hole-in-the-wall eateries and herbal medicine shops, the Oahu...more
My family and I decided to celebrate the Lunar New Year in Chinatown since they were having a large festival there.
This will be a completely honest review and I will give you the good and the bad.
