Cultural Activities Tips (8)

Polynesian Cultural Centre

This place is amazing. I grew up in NZ (now living in Melbourne, Australia) and there are alot of polynesians here...however visiting this place is another experience altogether...you get to learn the history of all most of the polynesian islands as well as enjoy a pagent boat show, then a dinner of your choice (I would highly recommend the ali'i luau) and last but not least the horizon night show. Prices of tickets range from $50 to $110 depending on what you want to do. My suggestion would be to buy a ticket which included dinner mainly because this is an all day tour and it starts from 10am and you are usually back into your hotel by 10pm...You can book through the website or you can book through an agent. We decided to book through an agent called Sav on tours...they can be located in the Waikiki Trade Centre building. We got a deal which included the Grand Circle Tour and Snorkelling at Hanauma Bay...which cost us $160 we saved about $50 if we had booked each one separately....

St. Augustine Catholic Church

This is an old church on Waikiki's Kalakaua Ave, the main strip. Unfortunately the land in front of this old church has a tacky strip mall built. But there is an old gate that leads you back to the entry of this church. Inside there are many beautiful stained glass windows with tropical themes running through them.

The Duke

Duke Paoa Kahanamoku lived from 1890-1968. He was born and raised in Waikiki and was a full-blooded Hawaiian. He was an Olympic champion between 1912 and 1922. He is known as the Father of International Surfing having introduced the sport to the Eastern seaboard. He is recognized as the "Hawaiian Ambassador of Aloha". During his lifetime, the Duke was a movie actor, political figure, and true hero. His statue is located on Waikiki Beach where many honor him by placing leis on his statue.

Beach scenes

Another favorite pic on the beach.

You can see many people with surfboards jumping in the ocean or watching others and the waves.

How high are they? This is critical to a surfer, my sister windsurfs and is a professional in the sport. She definitely checks things out before going into the water.

Luau

Germaines Luau - they moved the luau to their own beach in the INDUSTRIALISED ZONE!! YUCK!!! When you arrive there, you will note the scrap metal yard, the cement factory, and other industrial junk. Immediately, you get buyer's remorse and wonder what the heck you are doing there.

Other luaus I have been to had the performing area (stage) facing east - therefore you would see the setting sun behind the performers. Not so here. The stage faces west, so you miss the sunset, and they built up the stage and the area behind it so you cannot see the other industry in the area anyway (not that you'd want to!).

I recommend trying other luaus, one being the Ko'Olina luau. I have had this one recommended to me - it is a few dollars more expensive, but I am told it is a nicer ambiance and worth the money.

Get Lei'd

Create your own lei while in Hawaii! I stayed at the Outrigger Beach Hotel and they had a lei making class. At first I was not interested but my friend, Natalie said we should try to make one since we are in Hawaii. We made these beautiful lei's and also made ankle and wrist leis as well. It is great to just hang out be a complete TOURIST and the best part is that they smell magnificient and look great while you are strolling down Waikiki Beach.

Children at the beach!

I watched these children cutting leaves from the tree until each one got their own leaf?

What were they building? A gilligans island?
