Honolulu is the capital and most populated city of Hawaii located on the island of Oahu. Honolulu has been put into the world’s attention in many ways including historical recognition following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and the birthplace of Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States. Honolulu is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world due to its isolated Pacific location, perfect weather and extremely hospitable Hawaiian culture. Honolulu has several unique neighborhoods including the 12-block area Arts District in downtown/Chinatown, Kaka’ako a light-industrial district, and Ala Moana, mainly a shopping center. Honolulu acts as a natural gateway to the islands’ huge tourism industry, as well as allowing the city to be a major trading and business hub in the Pacific. Honolulu also has a large American military presence due to its valuable and strategic location. Several companies are based in Honolulu such as Alexander & Baldwin, First Hawaiian Bank, Hawaiian Electric Industries, and many more. Honolulu International Aiport is located on a man-made island just off the Hawaiian shore, and is easily accessible to the city of Honolulu.
