    TOO RICH FOR ME
    Very easy walk through. Sadly nearly all the shops were very high end and catering for the wealthy (not me!) There is a food court for cheap eats although the range is less than last time that we visited. They do have lovely decorations at Xmas time

    You may find something you like in this center
    Amazing place with various shopping and dining options with relaxing atmosphere for strolling. Lighting and decorations at night (we were there around Christmas time) was also impressively beautiful. We visited Poke Waikiki, Korean BBQ, and the ice cream places couple times. Delicious and affordable.

    Upscale Shopping Mall Near Waikiki
    Upscale 2 story shopping mall near Waikiki on Kalakaua Avenue. No inexpensive shopping here. Nice enough to wander through and window shop. Found a nice gelato place just outside the northeast entrance.

    Very nice mall with a little bit of everything
    This is a good mall for tourist. Lots of shopping, many restaurants,and of course an ABC store. Whether you forgot your sunscreen, wanna buy Hawaiian cookies for a gift or dying for some of the best sushi you’ve ever had… this is your place. The Hawaiian ice here is OK not the best but is decent.

    Beautiful at Night, Support Local Artists
    Most of the stores here are high end places that you can basically find in any major city in the world (think Hermes, Fendi, etc.). However, there are a few shops here that sell only local artists creations. I would recommend going here for that reason alone! It is also a good spot to get traditional shave ice and admire the light decorated palm trees.

    Waikiki Shopping Mall
    The Royal Hawaiian Centre is a three storey shopping mall that's immediately outside the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, and spreads three blocks along Kalakaua Avenue. The top two levels, with lesser foot traffic, have some shops and several eateries ranging in type from food court style up to fine dining. The ground floor has a mixture of chain and specialty shops, but importantly also a concise range of the very high-end designer stores. This mall is an important part of the Waikiki experience, and it's also very convenient for people who are staying at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

Years ago I took TAUK TOURS AND STAYED at the ROYAL HAWAIIAN HOTEL ABOUT LATE 1980S . THE ROYAL HAWAIIAN CENTER WAS NOT THERE. WHAT A FANTASTIC ADDITION. THE DESIGN IS SUCH THAT WOULD.
MEET THE SATISFACTION OF HAVING A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE IN HAWAII WETHERSFIELD YOU ARE SINGLE OR ON A HONEYMOON OR WITH A GROUP. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS.

Nice street mall that has a lot of high end shops on the street level. Restaurants and food court are located on upper levels. It’s a great place to go for a stroll.

A beautiful shopping centre. Offers a number of great events throughout the week that are worth checking out. Everything is listed on their website. Only one of my daughters was able to do the Lei making activity on Friday due to space limitations. We arrived 15 minutes early and still there was only one of the 24 available spots left!! So if you want to do this, plan to get there early! The lady who runs this event is quite strict - she made a 9 and three quarter year old cry when she booted her out just before the class was starting as she didn't meet the minimum age requirement of 10. They have other cultural events which are great - hula dancing shows, some singing, even hula dancing lessons my kids did. But beware - they are quick to cancel. We didn't get to see the scheduled Saturday Hula show as it was cancelled for some unknown reason. Cancellations are never listed on the website which is too bad. Google them to find their site to check out their different offerings. Another great free hula show is right on Waikiki beach. Every Tuesday and Saturday, it runs from 6:30-7:30. We walked over to that after seeing the Saturday show was cancelled at the Royal Hawaiian and it was great! The family really enjoyed it.
