Waikiki Shopping Plaza
More than 75 specialty shops and restaurants are spread over five floors in this interesting Asian-dominated shopping complex. There are several casual eateries on the lower level, including Plaza Sushi and the Plaza Coffeeshop. Famous Teppanyaki restaurant Tanaka of Tokyo is on an upper floor. Shops include Yokohama Okadaya, Belle Vie and Naughty Wave. Most of the wholesalers and open craft studios are located on the top two floors; you can usually spot the artisans at work.
The shopping was great, but what I loved the most about the Plaza was the show that they have Monday - Friday from 7:30 to 9:00. It's free and really leaves you with a great memory of Hawaii. I can't wait to go back
Not that Honolulu needed another mall along Kalakaua ave,its International mkt place and Royal Hawaiian malls are plenty.Yet what Waikiki shopping plaza has that the others don't,is a trendy atmosphere.In its many tiered levels,five in all,take you from soup to nuts.I spent a few hrs in the evening here and snacked on spring rolls at an eatery in the lower level.Here too is Subway,Popeyes,oriental eats and a cafe for hot and cold drinks.Other levels included art gallerys,souveniers,houseware items and gifts.The piece de resistance,however is located on the 5th level.Here is "Kid Kahuna" a fun and games locale having glo-in the dark golf,boutique carts with one of a kind crafts and trendy gifts.Also on the day I happened to be here free pop corn and pink carnival cotton candy were given to shoppers!
What fun,the more malls the merrier,cuz Hawaii just isn't the hula anymore!
THe Waikiki Shopping Plaza is a good tourist shopping center,less crowded then Ala Moana,and closer to major hotels.It's rather large and has a large variety of stores.But you have to keep an eye on your kids so that they don't get lost.The store you HAVE TO see is the Waikiki Beach Gallery.They have the best collection of local art anywhere.
