Honolulu Shopping Guide

White sand beaches and fantastic weather might offer a distraction from Honolulu’s electric shopping scene, but make no mistake about it: Honolulu is a shopper’s paradise. From mega malls and sprawling retail enclaves to outdoor markets and small mom-and-pop boutiques, whether you’re a Louis Vuitton-toting fashionista or a student in search of local souvenirs, endless shopping treasures await you in Hawaii’s capital city.

Ala Moana

Shopping ’til you drop takes on a whole new meaning when you visit Ala Moana Center. Located about 20 minutes outside of Waikiki, with free public trolleys to take you there, this sprawling, 2.4-million-square-foot mega mall—the largest open-air shopping mall in the world—is like New York City’s Soho, Chicago’s Miracle Mile, and Beverly Hill’s Rodeo Drive all rolled into one. From the minute you ascend the escalator to emerge on Ala Moana’s main floor, you’ll be dazzled by the seemingly endless array of luxury name brands: Cartier, Carolina Herrera, Bulgari. It's a who’s who of more than 50 designer boutiques: Pop into Dolce & Gabbana for the season’s latest ready-to-wear, Hermes for a signature silk scarf, or Gucci to pick up a classic logo purse. For locally made goods, hit up spots like Splash! Hawaii for island swimwear, or Big Island Candies for shortbread cookies and chocolate. The shopping continues at the center’s four major department stores: Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, and Bloomingdales. When you need a boost in energy, take a break at one of Ala Moana’s 100-plus eateries. Shirokiya Japan Village Walk, a Japanese food hall, is noteworthy for its distinctive architecture and 56 vendor stalls featuring steaming hot bowls of ramen, delectable sushi, and chargrilled yakitori.

Thoroughly enjoyed shopping at this mall - good variety of shops at reasonable prices and Macy’s is far better with much more variety than Macy’s in Waikiki.
The mall was a pleasant surprise - a good size Macy's (better than the one in central Waikiki), and there was a good diverse range of shops that aren't part of major chains.
