Kama’aina and tourists alike rejoiced when the new International Marketplace opened in 2016. This iconic gathering place features approximately 75 retailers and a handful of delicious dining options in the heart of world famous Waikiki.
A perfect blend of old and new- let’s discover the International Marketplace.
Anchor store, Saks Fifth Avenue, offers a wide selection of high-end designers for both men and women., featuring an assortment of apparel, footwear, leather goods, accessories, cosmetics, and fragrances.
My personal favorite is the Christian Louboutin boutique. Famous among celebrities and fashionistas alike for its iconic red bottom shoes and daring style. With only a select number of free standing Christian Louboutin boutiques in the United States, locals and tourists can take advantage of the lower sales tax in Hawaii when making a purchase.
For dining, consider Eating House 1849 by Roy Yamaguchi. Award winning chef Roy Yamaguchi blends locals flavors while creating a true farm-to-table experience. A popular restaurant during evenings, so be sure to make a reservation!
Be sure to take a step back in Hawaii’s rich history at Queens Court stage. There is nightly complimentary entertainment featuring Hawaiian and Polynesian song and dance.
Whether you love shopping, eating Pacific Rim cuisine, or exploring the heritage of old Hawaii, be sure to add the new International Marketplace to your travel itinerary. O’ahu is known as “The Gathering Place” and the International Marketplace truly embodies that spirit.
