Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center
With more than 150 specialty stores and restaurants, this is truly a one-of-a-kind complex. The only one larger in Honolulu is the Ala Moana Center, and some people say that Royal Hawaiian is beginning to outgrow its famous neighbor. Designer boutiques include Bulgari , Celine and Cartier . Specialty stores such as the Ukulele House 2 carry local merchandise. With more than a dozen restaurants and informal eateries to choose from, you'll never go hungry.
I am a shopper at heart. Los Angeles offers such diverse enviroments since the city is a meshing of various cultures. We have are faux pas as well, Hollywood and Highland, The Georges Pompidou Centre inspired Beverly Center and the 70's left over the Glendale Galleria. But that is expected in a large city that is vast and geographically different from neighbourhood to neighbourhood. It is rather unfortunate that this shopping center hides the Pink Palace" and it's charming island vision. This mall seems like it was plucked right out off some suburb in Los Angeles and transplanted to Waikiki to remind us that although we are in paradise, it too can get ugly. Inside the shopping center are stores that appear desolate since it is rarther dark, eventhough it is an open air mall. I am surprised that this building doesn't offend much, but I guess it will be around forever or until someone finally decides to remodel it to fit the scene of Waikiki. Regardless, name brand shoppers will still flock because while on vacation there is always money to burn at Salvatore Ferragamo.
Granted the last time I was there was 18 years ago, but at that time the mall was bustling right up to the 4th floor. Now there are only a few stores that the average person could even think of shopping in, unless you plan on spending US$750.00 on a purse! It has lost its charm and that goes for a lot of Waikiki. Kalakaua and Kuhio used to be two busy street with interesting stores and restaurants. After dark Kuhio completely dies down and is full of prostitutes and drug dealers. My wife and I witnessed this while out for a walk with my 18 month old and were very frightened... at 7:30 pm!!
