The Polynesian Cultural Center is one of the most visited destinations in Hawaii! Our beautiful 42 acre park, which sits along the northeast edge of Oahu, features six distinct Polynesian villages, Hawaii, Aotearoa, Fiji, Tahiti, Tonga and Samoa. We offer numerous dining options including daily luaus which provides a delicious island themed buffet and lively entertainment. Our award winning evening show, Ha: Breath of Life features over 100 Polynesian performers, presenting a stirring tale of love, adventure, life and death and featuring championship level fireknife dancers and jaw dropping special effects. We also provide a variety of shops and kiosks offering everything from aloha inspired clothing to quality ukuleles, and island souvenirs to fine jewelry.

After approximately 20 years I went there again and it was a pleasant, fun day. Yes, it changed and improved on certain levels, even the local friends I went with liked it a lot.

While I tend to be generous in reviewing travel experiences, from my perception, this place seems to be designed for those who want a touristic Disney-esque view of Hawaiian and Polynesian culture, from a capitalistic viewpoint. In theory, the concept is good but it is...More
