The hustle and bustle of Honiara, the capital of Solomon Islands, provides a nice counterpoint to the slow pace and laid-back atmosphere in other areas of the country.
Visiting Honiara Botanical Gardens and Tenaru Falls will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to St. Barnabas Anglican Cathedral and Japanese War Memorial. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Solomon Islands National Museum, admire the natural beauty at Solomon Islands Memorial Garden, hunt for treasures at Honiara Central Market, and appreciate the history behind Solomon Scouts & Coastwatchers Memorial.
