Mall shoppers will flock to Ala Moana Mall and Ward Centers in Honolulu. From designer apparel to jewelry and household items, you’ll find a little bit of everything in one location at these popular shopping destinations: Macy’s, Nordstrom, Sears, and Neiman Marcus anchor Ala Moana Mall, with smaller shops like Ann Taylor, Gap, Old Navy, and even a Lego store filling the four-story complex. Ward Centers offers stores like Quiksilver and Patagonia along with island specialty stores like Nohea Gallery and Native Books/Na Mea Hawaii. The Kahala Mall is on the smaller side, but home to the popular Whole Foods Market.


Known as Luxury Row, the 2100 block of Kalakaua Avenue features world class shopping and international brands such as Chanel, Tiffany and Co., Gucci, and Coach. This is where you’ll see shoppers dressed to kill carrying piles of bags from designer boutiques. 


For aloha wear, a visit to Hilo Hattie or Reyn Spooner will fill your suitcase with the bright colors of the tropics that are so popular in the islands. Both brands have several locations on Oahu. If you prefer a vintage look, seek out Bailey’s Antiques and Aloha Wear, with the world’s largest selection of aloha wear. They claim to have 15,000 shirts to choose from, but who’s counting? 


Bishop Museum is worth a visit for its excellent exhibits but you’ll also find Shop Pacifica, the museum’s gift shop, a great place to find unique items crafted in the islands. The Honolulu Academy of Arts also has a museum shop worth checking out. 


The Aloha Stadium Swap Meet, held Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, is a fun outdoor market offering a little bit of everything, from antiques to clothing and take-out food. Don’t miss the International Market Place in the heart of Waikiki, where vendors offer bargains on jewelry, textiles, toys, clothing, and lots more.
