Best places to go shopping in Hawaii

Hawaii Tourism Oceania also releases 2020 Meet Hawaii Guide

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, and Christmas hot on its heels, The Hawaiian Islands are a great place to go shopping.


Hawaiian Airlines has the super generous 60kg luggage allowance so why not head over and do your gift shopping in one of the most beautiful places on earth?



Waikele Premium Outlets

If you love big brands but not the big price tags, Waikele is your dream shopping destination. Head here for Kate Spade, Tommy Hillfiger, Polo Ralph Lauren and more. 


Ala Moana Center

Allow at least half a day to make the most of Ala Moana Center, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest open air mall. With a dedicate Disney shop, this is a great place to shop for kid’s presents.


Ross Dress for Less

This is possibly The Hawaiian Island’s best kept secret if you are a thrifty shopper. With clothes for men, women and children ranging across underwear, swimwear, footwear and everything in between, the low prices are thrilling.


International Market Place

This open air shopping centre has just had a major upgrade and now features a huge range of dining outlets, including fine dining, as well as over 100 stores. Conveniently located in the heart of Waikiki, it’s easy to pop in and out of. 


Aloha Stadium Swap Meet

Held every Saturday morning, there are over 400 stalls selling bric-a-brac, second hand items, handmade jewellery, arts and crafts and plenty more. This is a perfect place to pick up a ukulele, eat some food truck specialties and fossick through the range of treasures on offer.


Waikiki Beach


If you're into Hawaii events, the 2020 Meet Hawai‘i Guide has been released by Hawai‘i Tourism Oceania to assist meeting planners in organising their business event, conference or incentive programs across the Hawaiian Islands.


The Hawaiian Islands are popular destinations for meetings and incentive programs, due to their phenomenal natural beauty, comprehensive accommodation options, unique venues and accessibility from Australia.


Providing event planners with a guide to the experiences, activities, accommodation and team-building opportunities across the Hawaiian Islands, the 2020 Meet Hawai‘i Guide is the perfect resource for planning a meeting, incentive, conference or event.  


Giselle Radulovic, Country Manager Australia for Hawai‘i Tourism Oceania said Hawai’i continues to be a favourite destination for both meeting planners and delegates.  


“With first class conference facilities, top tier accommodation options and unique ‘only in Hawaii’ social and team building activities, the Hawaiian Islands will deliver a memorable program for delegates and their partners” Ms Radulovic said.  


Hawai‘i Tourism Oceania offers a free event planning service for organisers holding a conference or incentive in Hawai’i. 


Kris Phadungkiatipong is the Sydney-based Trade and MCI Manager for Hawai‘i Tourism Oceania, providing up to date destination information, as well as advice on accommodation, venues and activities to create a memorable event.


The 2020 Meet Hawai‘i Guide is available for free download and provides a general overview, map and information on Hawai‘i’s six islands, Kaua‘i, O‘ahu, Maui, Moloka‘i, L?na‘i and The Island Of Hawai‘i.
