Join your personal Tour Escort, Stacey Baker as you shop up a storm in Hawaii.
22 - 29 November 2020
Pack an extra bag and let's fill it with Hawaii’s shopping treasures. Shopping can be a highly experiential way to travel — a way to find evocative, one-of-a-kind items, meet local craftspeople, and discover an authentic window into another culture's history, traditions, techniques and aesthetics. In the first of our Shopping Tours, we decided to help you experience one of the biggest shopping days of the year: the Black Friday Sales.
While the shopping in Hawaii has its rewards any time of the year, come November the bargains reach fever pitch with the Black Friday sales. These post-Thanksgiving sales are the Super Bowl of shopping in America. No matter your preferences, Hawaii has something for you; be it the fabulous Waikele Premium Outlets, Ala Moana Shopping Centre or the hidden spots on locals know about in Waikiki, let Stacey help you shop up a storm.
