Hawaii: Shopping Holiday

Sip cocktails with hibiscus flowers in your hair!

Although Hawaii has a few very fine shopping malls housing everything from your favourite accessory shop to the chicest boutique, the most unique shopping in Hawaii is done at its local market areas. Locals looking for the most authentic wares tend to head to Chinatown or the Giant Flea Market at Aloha Stadium – reminiscent of the Rose Bowl market in Pasadena, CA – if on Oahu. Visitors on the Big Island, Maui, and Kauai are treated to quaint local shops catering more to souvenirs and locally made products such as coffees, clothing, art, treasures from the sea, chocolates and macadamia nuts. No matter where you are in Hawaii, there’s always a bit of shopping to do.
