Default Has Anyone from Honolulu been to any of these international cities? If so, how similar to Honolulu

Hello,

Has anyone from Honolulu ever been to any of the following international cities, which appear based on photographs to be similar in appearance to some parts of Honolulu:

1. Gold Coast, Australia

2. Durban, South Africa

3. San Juan, Puerto Rico

If so, how similar was the actual climate and feel to Honolulu?

Which city in the world is most similar to Honolulu?

Thanks,

Steve

I can speak to 2 of the 3 places as I've spent extensive time there.

Gold Coast, Australia - I've spent months in Brisbane. Brisbane has a distict winter feel to it - night temperatures in the upper 40's are common - I don't believe Honolulu has ever been in the 40's. Also, the humidity is high in the summer which is rare in Honolulu. It also rains a lot more in Brisbane.

San Juan, Puerto Rico - spent a lot of time here also - temps are similar, but that is where it stops - summer in San Juan is a sauna, and the heavy rain and constant threat of tropical storms/lightening don't make this a good comparison to Honolulu either.

South Africa - never been.

They call it the best weather on the planet in Hawaii for a reason - moderate temps all year and generally low humidity makes it a very unique place.

Low humidity when it's sunny and the tradewinds are blowing yes, but both times I went to Honolulu it was rainy and humid.
