When we heard fashion and food writer Flora Tsapovsky was headed to Oahu, we knew we had to get her advice for the most delicious spots to eat and the most inspiring places to visit. See Flora’s Oahu top food and style destinations in the slideshow!

For the Hawaii-bound traveler, the mindset usually revolves around beaches, palm trees and relaxation.

Boutique shopping spots, art hubs and chic eateries are hiding in Kaimuki, Kaka’ako and beyond, just a bike ride away. A colorful Vietnamese restaurant with the best brisket you’ll ever have? A rare collection of Islamic artifacts? Boutique hotels? Oahu has it all.
