Waikiki's ala Moana Center Expands Shopping Options

June 4, 2007 By: Mark Rogers Travel Agent

Commissionable shopping packages offered

Although Waikiki may have made its reputation as a sun-and-sand destination, visitors will quickly notice how important shopping is as a component of the destination's tourism appeal.  Ala Moana Center in Waikiki

Kalakaua Avenue
is lined with high-end shops and many Japanese tourists come to Waikiki with shopping as their preferred activity.
Another major magnet for shoppers is the Ala Moana Center, which bills
itself as the world's largest open-air mall, with 260 stores, including 70
dining venues and such high-profile stores as Gucci, Bulgari and Tiffany &

The center is in the midst of a two-year retail expansion
project that will add 35 new merchants, including Hawaii's first full-line Nordstrom. The
center recently saw the opening of Tsukiji Fish Market and Restaurant, inspired
by Tokyo's
famous eponymous fish market.

A spokesperson for Ala Moana Center
had an interesting observation, mentioning that while visitors from major U.S. cities
will find these high-end shops familiar, those from many other parts of the
country will be impressed by the plethora of shopping options.

The center has several commissionable shopping packages,
ranging from $25 to $120, and including things like free transportation, discount
coupon books, gift cards and a complimentary shopping bag. Visit
