The Aloha Tower is a symbol greeting for tourists who are arriving and leaving O?ahu passing the Honolulu Harbor. The tower, built in 1926, is 184 feet tall, an impressive number that made it the tallest building in Hawaii until 1960. Square-shaped and slender, it has a dome with openings on its 4 sides. Two large clocks are placed underneath the dome, one of which faces the harbour and the other facing the island. The word ?Aloha? is etched between each clock face and balcony. Even from miles away, visitors will be able to get a glimpse of the greeting displayed in large letters.
The tower?s 10th floor also serves as a deck where visitors can enjoy a splendid view of Honolulu and the harbour. Surrounding the tower is the Aloha Tower Marketplace where shops, restaurants, and concessions provide a lively and energetic atmosphere.
