On my recent trip to the Hawaiian Islands I visited the Polynesian Cultural Center – a 42 acre living museum located on the north shore of Oahu. An enjoyable way to spend the day!
I visited six authentic villages; Tonga, Tahiti, Hawaii, Fiji, Aothearoa (New Zealand) and Samoa. Each village share their culture, history and offer shows during the day, with interactive attractions and authentic food to try.
Don’t miss Hawaiian Journey; a 15 minute 4D film on a 40 x 74 screen, showing areas of the Hawaiian Islands accessible only by air. A beautiful film with incredible scenery…I loved it! Note – look for the high top chairs in the center of the theater to experience the fun motion based seats.
Ali’i Luau – the extensive buffet dinner is followed with an enjoyable show; dancers, fire and music. Lots of colorful costume changes added to the beauty of this lovely show. After dinner and the show we moved to the Pacific Theater for a special event, HA: Breath of Life, a Pacific Isle saga with over 100 talented performers. The seating is theater style.
Transportation from Waikiki hotels can be arranged or combine your visit to the Polynesian Cultural Center with a Circle Island Tour of the Island.
The young guides and entertainers are helpful, friendly and very talented…well worth a visit!
