A huge 100-year-old banyan tree sits in the middle of this open-air shopping mall in Waikiki. It opened in 1956 and is still a popular shopping stop. Shops sell Aloha shirts, diamonds, pearls, woodcarvings, gold, kites, tapestries and surf equipment. You can find some interesting things at a reasonable cost at this popular place.
at the duke market there was a vendor who was selling black sand beach artwork who was very rude to me because i had purchased a similar item at another vendor. i had a great time on hawaii but this vendor left me with a bad taste in my mouth about the duke marketplace (next to international market)
My wife and I went here several times during out honeymoon. Having grown up in Hawaii I really enjoyed the International Marketplace because most of the people working there are actually the shop owners. They sell unique gifts at typically lower price. The only place you might find some of this stuff cheaper is at the flea market. But the flea market is only once a week and it is not as good of an experience.
I bought my mother in law a print from the Music Box kiosk.
The food court is both good and affordable. They often have life music by local artists and local polynesian shows. The open air environment is nice. Huge banyan trees offer shade (but watch out for bird bombs!)
Some shops can get repetitive in selling the same stuff and shop owners will engage you. Obviously if you like to avoid talking to human beings while you shop you should go to large retail centers nearby. But all-in-all the International Market Place is a fun affordable shopping experience in Waikiki!

Shady, breezy and somewhat beautiful, and a great place to shop with our bad ecomony. The marketplace has basically anything and too much of it. If youre careful you can spend less than $100 and get alot of gifts. We bought 4 tee shirts at one place for $9. The best rule is not to buy one particular thing you like the 1st time you see it. Chances are its at another vendor for $5 less. Shop around. Alot of the shops have the same exact things and that cool leaf-made photo album you just spent $15 on may be around the corner for $8.
The atmosphere is pleasant. Even when it rarely rains, you cannot tell. At the food court you'll find awesome plates for less than $6. Try that little Korean place, whatever you do. Visit the marketplace atleast once and like someone else mentioned "watch the gold" and dont think ya cant get that $20 picture for $12
A great place to browse, has almost everything, even luggage if you have bought too much. Very friendly vendors, nice little food court. Has some entertainment in the evening. Plan on spending some time here.
I have visited 5 times and will be there again the last week in April and I am so
excited. Everyone is so friendly, especially the ones who are demonstrating
their talent in making their products. I just love it there! Feb. 2004, my husband
& I were there to celebrate our 50th Ann. and it rained all the time. Since we are from Arizona, we loved "slopping in the water even when it was over our shoe tops"
and others were running for cover. We went upstairs and listened to the music, had french fries and beer and it was just
We spent a week in Honolulu early last year. and spent almost every evening at the IMP. We are going back this month, and we are excited about spending our evenings there again. What fun, looking at all the goodies. Prices much the same everwhere, but you could often bargain with them and get a better deal. Love the shell necklaces and other items unique to the islands. I'll be sure to get some better jewelry this time. Great atmosphere even is the rain. Excellent place to get your souveniers and gifts to take home to friends and family.
