Information from the Local Chairs

The ACM CHI 2020 local chairs look forward to welcoming to you all to Honolulu!

Here are some local tips for eating, socialising, touring and getting the best out of Hawai’i for before, during and after the conference.

There are many travel sites that list “top X things to do in Honolulu”.  Here are a few of our favorites:




WIth respect to food, there are a number of nice options.  If you want to sample the flavors and styles of the real Honolulu, see this website that lists many of the best options for eating like a local:


TripAdvisor has a broader set of suggestions, including fine dining, breakfast places, cheap eats, etc.:


For a local perspective, Honolulu magazine does an annual listing of the best restaurants:


And, of course, there is always Yelp.

For shopping, if you want to escape from the tourist-oriented fare in Waikiki, you can easily get to the Ala Moana mall (https://www.alamoanacenter.com/en.html; just a short walk from the Hilton Hawaiian Village).  For bargain hunters, you can go to the Waikele Outlet mall, but it is a long way from Waikiki.  Expect to spend a minimum of 45 minutes each way getting to and from Waikele: https://www.premiumoutlets.com/outlet/waikele

Finally, we suggest that you consider a visit to one or more of the other Hawaiian islands: https://www.gohawaii.com/islands  They are all worth a visit!
