From the white sand beaches and golden sunsets to the lush mountain rainforests, there are many reasons why Hawaii has become one of the world’s favourite holiday destinations. Shopping is without a doubt among the top attractions. Enticing shoppers from around the world, Honolulu boasts fine department stores, glamorous fashion and accessories boutiques and of course the ever popular outlet malls.
Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki Beach and downtown’s Ala Moana Center are the main locations for those looking for upscale shopping with all of the internationally known name brand retailers. While Waikiki offers an entire street length of tempting upscale shops and stores, the Ala Moana Center (the world’s largest open air shopping complex) is filled with all the best boutiques and shops in one magnificently concentrated area.
If you’re looking for the best deals on all the name brands, there are several outlet malls to choose from. Waikele Premium Outlets in Waipahu is just 15 miles west of Honolulu and conveniently located off the H-1 motorway. Bus, taxi and shuttle service is available to this enormous mall which features everything from designer fashions, shoes, accessories, children’s wear as well as gifts and accessories.
