Top Things to Do in Honiara

Top Things to Do in Honiara, Honiara, Solomon Island (B)

After four weeks of island hopping, I joined my friends in the Solomons after an unusual connecting flight through Fiji. The gentleman in my row asked me to carry his alcohol through immigration. I’m sure it was just due to a limit, but entering a foreign country, I politely replied, “No, thank you.” Upon a second attempt, to which I said no again, he told me I wasn’t being very nice!

Ultimately, at no fault of our own, our plans changed, but our adventures continued. After landing to a crowd of people welcoming their family home, we met the pre-arranged airport shuttle, and after a 30-minute drive, we checked into our hotel, The Coral Sea Resort and Casino. ......
