A Polynesian Experience
If you have never seen Samoan men, cook, make fire or climb coconut trees, you better spare one whole day at the cultural center. I have seen similar cultural aspects of the Polynesians growing up in the Philippines, but it is a different experience to sit with an audience who ooohs and aaahs to the nature of human survival! I was awed (in a positive sense) at how much they appreciated and applauded this because they have never seen this before.
You'll be happy to know, that all proceeds of the park goes to the education of the young men and women who work there. Working in the entertainment industry, i see so much frustrations and bitterness because of the job and workload we have to face each day. These students and alumnus however, appreciate your visit and make sure you enjoy it because they want to guarantee you get the most of your visit!
My biggest advice, don't drive there. Take the tour bus and you'll appreciate the humor and fun of Oahu.

Polynesian Culture Center or...
Polynesian Culture Center or PCC as it's known to locals
Get a taste of various Polynesian cultures and learn that the traditional Hula dance most are familiar with, you know grass skirts, bikini tops, and wild hip moving, is not Hawaiian, but Tahitian!
You will also see the best night show on the island. The fire knife dancers are incredible and the costumes are beautiful.
Most all of the people who work there are actually BYU Hawaii students, as the Mormon church runs the center.
Time for a Luau
Great entertainment and good food. We went with a tour so everything was arranged for us. On the way to the Luau, we passed by China man's hat and other scenic views.
Polynesia Cultural Center
A very leaning experience the songs, dances, humor and lifestyles of the seven South Pacific cultures that came to together in Hawaii.
