Interesting plants and flowers. Some trees are huge. We were there in May not that many blooms. Butterfly sanctuary had no butterflies. Temple next door was interesting.

An amazing variety of palms and trees from around the world's tropical sites. The map of the trails was a bit confusing but all in all a pleasant visit.

Unless you are a botanical garden photographer such as I, and with so many other places to see on Oahu, don't even get in the car for this.

Yes - many alternatives. I believe we took the red line, hop-on hop-off tour and it was one of the stops.
