  • Ala Moana Shopping Center

    Honolulu Shopping

    Before the Mall of America opened in Minneapolis, Ala Moana Shopping Center was the largest mall in the US. It has enough shops so that you can find almost everything you need. The nice thing is that the locals shop here, too; it's not just a tourist haunt. I find it a fun place to hang out. On my last visit I found a lovely muumuu on sale at...

  • ABC Stories

    Oahu Shopping

    If you stay in the beach area of Waikiki, you will think Oahu must be dense with ABC stores, but really, maybe 25 out of 30 of the ABC stores on the island are within the hotel filled beach area of Waikiki. That means in that area you are usually never more than a block from an ABC store, and in any one spot you are within a block or two of maybe 5...

  • Coconut MarketPlace

    Kauai Shopping

    This is a good place to go for last minute Hawaiian shirts and magnets. Ultimately, its the same store repeated over and over again -- shot glasses, magnets, Hawaiian shirts ...shot glasses, magnets, Hawaiian shirts. Mixed in between are a few unique shops that offer specialty items like monkeypod wood, but most of the shops you will see the same...

  • International Market Place

    Honolulu Shopping

    ****RIP International Market Place, 1957-2014 - The International Marketplace is no more. It has been leveled, reportedly to make room fo a Saks Fifth Avenue. The only good thing is that the big banyan tree is protected by law, so they will have to build around it. Very sad. I'm leaving this tip up as a remembrance. ******* The International...

    This is a great place to wander and pick up some jewelry or some souvenirs to take back home. By no means are the prices less expensive here, but you have a wide range of items to pick from.

    Normally I would never shop at Wal-Mart on the mainland, but a good friend who was born and raised on Kauai advised us to shop there before our first trip. It's now the first stop we make after we land in Lihue. We travel to Kauai about twice a year and always "hit the Wal-Mart." Wal-Mart has great prices on things like macadamia nuts, coffee, and...

    The aloha shirt is definitely a nice and practical thing to buy here, for you or any other you love back home. Although, all the shirts we saw are made in China in our days the roots of the shirt go back to the late 20s when some tailors recycled leftover kimono fabric into the famous shortsleeved untucked shirt. There are dozen of different...
