    There virtually is a jewelry store next to every ABC store on Front Street. Most sell the same things and most is not locally produced. If you like what you see in one of those shops, don't buy right away - negotiate. If you want unique jewelry, spend some time looking for the less ordinary - it is there also and is priced fairly, but negotiation is still a possibility. Another good alternative jewelry source is to watch the papers and go to one of the craft/art shows that occurs somewhere in the region almost weekly. Quite often, you will be talking to and buying from the maker of the jewelry.

    Shopping at the Kaanapali Whalers Village or the Shops At Wailea!
    As you might expect, both of these shopping complexes are attached to large, expensive hotel resort areas. Just call be strange but when I go on holiday I don't suddenly get the urge to shop at Gucci, Christian Dior, Versace, Tiffany and all those other designer shops which seem can be found at these locations.

    Of course, I was unusual in that I was one of the few tourists on Maui not there on either a honeymoon or wedding anniversary. Maybe those occasions put you more in the mood for blowing US$3,000 on his and hers watches.

    Of course, it's not all clothes and jewellry, you'll find your fair share of expensive souvenir shops as well.

    It's ok if you like shopping or if you have a few hours to kill and can't think of anything much to do. However, don't come here thinking this is a normal shopping mall, although if you are desperate for sunscreen, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, cold drinks or an underwater camera, there is an ABC store at each of these locations as well.

    To be honest, the only time I went to Whalers Village was when I needed a place to park to go to Kaanapali Beach.

    What out when shopping. The are many shops in Lahaina, don't buy at the first shop you see. You may be loooking for a t-shirt and you see one for $10. You then walk a couple of shops down and you see the same shirt for $7.
    Then a block down you see 3 t-shirts for $10. Shop around before you buy.

    One of the million Luaus you'll see. For the most part they are cheese, but if you insist; the Maui Marriott's Luau is decent. The food, however, is great.
