Its world-class resorts, sprawling surf beaches, constant sunshine and close proximity to the rest of the US keep luring us to its shores in record-breaking numbers each year.
But besides the usual image of postcard-perfect palm trees and Pina Coladas, Hawai’i has also earned a name for itself as one of the most exciting shopping meccas in the world, featuring everything from luxury designer boutiques and malls to quirky markets and excellent value-for-money outlet shopping malls.
In fact, shopping is the number one holiday activity enjoyed by Aussies in Hawai’i!
