    Tons of shops from Target to high end, very nice and huge mall to explore for hours if you like.
    Not too far from Waikiki beach.

    Truly magical place. As you walk on the grass there are so many different kinds of birds and they are not even afraid. It’s paradise. The beaches on both sides of the island are superb. Clear water and no waves, so serene. There is a colony of adorable cats living on the rocks. Watching the sunset is incredible. Very serene atmosphere. Everything very clean. Bathrooms sparkling clean. Just a wonderful place to go and admire nature.

    We love Don Quijote because it carries a very large selection of Japanese and other Asian products, but of course, along with that, the price tag sometimes can also reflect the "made in japan". We especially enjoy their very reasonably priced sushi and hot meals. They have almost everything you need. What I found a little pricey here is the eggs (from hawaii) and the milk. you would be better off going to elsewhere for those products at a lower price point. We also enjoy their Taco poke in kim chee sauce...

    During our one month stay in honolulu, we usually visit DQ at least 4 or 5 times.

    Nice, fun way to spend a Saturday morning. We took TheBus from Honolulu. Drops off right across the street from Market. Really loved the older gentleman playing the ukulele. Fresh veggies, a few local products for sale and food vendors. We had great acai bowls and street corn.

    Great place for kids! Lots of interactive and interesting activities and displays! Not sure the parents should be charged full price - almost not worth it for that but it did exceed our expectations going in. We did it on a rainy day and arrived just after it opened before it was very busy. Definitely got busier as it approached noon. Lots of fun

    Describing this as a shopping centre is a little bit of marketing spin. It's actually five separate buildings of somewhat disparate quality in the same area. The Nordstrom Rack and TJ Maxx in one building are both great and there's an excellent Whole Foods Market a hundred yards or so up the road, but the other shopping precincts were either rather run down or of minimal interest given how much shopping there is to be done in Honolulu. One plus was that there is lots of parking.

    There were some big waves crashing in with lots of surfers riding them.

    We watched for several minutes, enjoying the blue water and landscape. It was a fun spot to visit.

    Was luck enough to catch a Jack Johnson show here. How great is that? Seeing jj in Hawaii, great venue. Very picturesque. Recommend seeing a show here.

    The Hawai'i Opera Theater (HOT) stages several operas or concerts each season at various venues. Contemporary operas are included. We attended a performance at the Blaisdell Concert Hall (central Honolulu) of a traditional favorite, Jacques Offenbach's "Tales of Hofmann," in the original French with English translation in easily readable supertitles. Chorus, orchestra, and soloists were all good, some very good. It was a most enjoyable evening. Garage parking is convenient and costs $7 after 5:00 pm ($6 before 5:00). The Blaisdell Auditorium is modern and comfortable. Seat prices are reasonable for entertainment of this type. Dress varies from elegant flip-flops to men's jackets, but Aloha shirts and slacks for men, and slacks, skirts, and blouses for women in the "Hawaii business casual" mode were most typical. The performance was preceded by a most illuminating 15-minute outdoor lecture at the Ward Avenue Lanai.

    Love the Consolidated Theatre complex. 16 screens, Comfy Recliners.
    Good food and entertainment options. We went to Dave and Busters for a little arcade fun.

    Excellent experience overall. Crew informative, friendly and accommodating. Less than ideal weather but worth the experience.

    As you'd expect from the name, Opal Fields has an amazing collection of fabulous, rare black opal jewelry in spectacular artisan-designed settings. I'm an opal connoisseur, and their selection is second to none in the United States. If that were all they offered, their new store in Waterfront Plaza (a/k/a "Restaurant Row") would still be a must-visit. But Opal Fields is so much more than just an opal store! Their collection of exquisite jewelry and loose stones ranges from the world's rarest and finest diamonds (they're the only authorized EightStar representatives in Hawaii, and one of only a few in the United States) to heart-stopping emeralds and rubies, magnificent natural pearls, lustrous jade in all shades, and so much more. (Think Harry Winston or Van Cleef and Arpels quality -- then add another ten points and subtract the snobby attitude!) Master GIA Gemologists Tom and June really know their profession, and they're very glad to share their knowledge and expertise. An appointment is suggested. This is not a high-volume shop like the ones at Ala Moana Center or the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center; expect to be receive individual attention in a relaxed, professional atmosphere. Highly recommended!

    This experience was simply incredible! Our driver (Benny) and tour guide (Paul) were fabulous. The stories during the bus ride, the knowledge of Hawaiian history and culture, love of nature, and certainly the jokes and laughter was like good medicine. Paul’s love for this state and making us all feel welcome was greatly appreciated.
