Surfer Walking in Front of Macy's on Kalakaua Ave.


I was shocked the first time I visited Waikiki by the variety of shopping. There was Louis Vuitton and Coach stores, and then there were tourist souvenir stands all within a block of each other. There are also duty free shops, and Asian department stores.


And then there is the Ala Moana Center. The largest outdoor shopping mall in the world and the largest mall in Hawaii, with the coolest food court I might add.


The shopping is so great, Japanese tourists take tours from Japan to visit Honolulu and Waikiki for the shopping alone!

Look for typical Hawaiian souvenirs like, locally grown coffee, macadamia nuts, and aloha wear.


Below you will find some options on Honolulu shopping.

International Marketplace

Honolulu Shopping
The International Marketplace  is a great place for souvenir shopping in Honolulu. It is made up of over 130 carts and shops, shaded by a huge Banyan tree, right on Kalakaua Avenue, between Seaside and Kailulani. In the evening they have free entertainment, and the area has a nice atmosphere to visit.


The prices are good if you are looking for T-shirts, aloha wear, beach towels and local crafts. There are also food stands and many jewellery shops.


We enjoyed our time here, and even got temporary tattoos for fun!
