Royal Hawaiian Center

Mall in Waikiki

Not to be confused with the Royal Hawaiian Resort hotel next door, this upscale shopping center has four levels and houses more than 80 top-end stores; some local such as Fighting Eel, some chains such as Apple. Art galleries display high-quality koa carvings, while jewelers trade in Niʻihau shell-lei necklaces and flower-lei stands sell fresh, wearable art. It hosts many free activities.
