Metro Honolulu, and especially Waikiki, real estate was where the old aristocracy once made their homes. During the days of Hawaiian Monarchy, Hawaiian Royalty kept beach houses along the Waikiki beach of Oahu and once considered it their playground. Much of the area, however, was
of marsh and wetlands and often flooded the land during heavy rains.
In the 1920’s, the Ala Wai Canal was dredged and the springs, ponds, and marshes filled and the Waikiki of today began to take shape.
Waikiki and its surrounding neighborhoods in Honolulu, including Chinatown, Downtown, Maikiki, Kapiolani, and Manoa, are considered Hawaii’s metropolitan area. Waikiki, of course, is famous for its beaches and world-class hotels and resorts. And, if shopping is what you’re looking for, Waikiki does not disappoint.
Along its main strip of Kalakaua Avenue alone, you’ll find an array of shops, boutiques, and kiosks selling everything and anything under the sun. Not too far from there is the Ala Moana Center, the world’s largest outdoor shopping center, where you can find premier shopping, entertainment, and dining destinations.
Waikiki and the Metro area also boast some of Oahu’s popular attractions such as the Waikiki Aquarium, Honolulu Zoo, Iolani Palace, Ala Moana Beach Park, Kapiolani Park, Manoa Falls—just to name a few.
