International Market Place, Waikiki
A great place to shopp in IF you know the art of bargain. If you´r not good at bargain then the shopping will be expensive. Besides the shopping you can take something to eat in the International Market Place Food Court (see my tip of the food court in International Market Place, restaurant tip), or you can just walk aroud at the wonderful Market Place.
