Polynesian Culture Center

<font color=green><font size=3>This is definitely my most favorite memory of Hawaii on this trip.

7 Pacific cultures came to Hawaii and they come alive on this 42 acre center.

1) Islands of Samoa
2) Islands of New Zeeland
3) Islands of Figi
4) Islands of Hwai'i
5) Islands of Marquesas
6) Islands of Tahiti
7) Islands of Tonga

<font color=red>The dancers reinact war dances, ancient wedding ceremonies, climb four-story trees with bare feet, rub sticks, tattoes, basket weaving and more.

<font color=black>This was my 4th trip to the Hawaiin islands, but I never saw the cultures and who first came to the islands many years ago. It was fascinating, I highly recommend it on your first visit.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Spectacular night show with a cast of 100
  • Cons:8 hours is not enough time to see it all!
  • In a nutshell:A GREAT mixing of cultures and learning experience
