Around 10 percent of the islands’ population live in the bustling capital of Honiara. Although the city operates as a gateway into the more secluded parts of the Solomon Islands, it’s worth stopping to check out the sights. Get a taste of local culture at the lively Central Market, where producers from across the islands come to sell their fruit, vegetables and daily catch of fish. You’ll also find local crafts on sale. To learn more about the country’s culture, check out the small National Museum, which has displays on traditional dances, body ornamentation and archaeological findings.
The capital is rapidly transforming into a popular MICE hub in the South Pacific. It has a lot to offer business travellers, including high end hotels and conference facilities. There is a good food scene in the city, ranging from upmarket restaurants to barbecued street-food.
