  • All our local friends advised us to buy before we not the Aloha Stadium swap meet visited, a kind of flea market anything on Oahu on souvenirs. Wednesdays and Saturdays are mainly with Virgin material traders who felt often specially manufactured for the swap meet. On Sundays, where we were there, there was also still around 70-80 levels of private people who offered their discarded furniture, so what we understand under flea market. Our local friends were of the opinion that many stores in downtown Honolulu and Waikiki right here buy your goods and collect double and triple fixed. We could not confirm however so that from personal experience. Indeed, one finds here really locally manufactured goods such as bags, Lei and clothes, which are perfectly suitable as souvenirs. But in far East cheap, like TShirts with Hawaiian motifs, cloned Hawaiian shirts from cheapest materials, that's just shudder one. We found the same cheap goods on many levels with minimal price differences. In between, there are food stalls with chilled coconuts, fruits and snack mixtures or service providers as masseurs. Even if the market stretches around the stadium, there is everywhere much air in between. We talked about it with a few stand owners and they told us that the owner has changed some time ago and now massive booth prices increased, so that many market people who were active there for 30 years, had to give up now. On Sunday morning there were approximately estimated 200-250 dealer we saw. We went without any problems with the car over the Highwayhin, the stadium is signposted from the top and from afar, paying $ 1 per person at the entrance and parked right there. It should go well with TheBus and Waikiki, there should be extra tours there. We recommend anywhere to bring cash and your own bags, what we can not confirm however. Regularly there at the edge of credit cards-ATMs, which were also acceptable conversion rates and fees. And reaches a small backpack, because if we bought large quantities, then we got to even a bag. However, if it is hot, should one be sure a head covering (no shade) and have a water bottle. On the other hand, the baseball caps and hats with about 5 USD for Oahu were dirt cheap. It has no water, so a beheaded coconut is really refreshing. The swap meet is quite worth also not so sensational, as always I do when writing. If you're only a week in Honolulu/Waikiki and publicly there out do move (so half a day goes around quickly), you wonder whether the savings of 10-20 USD are really worth the effort. On the other hand the private swap meet are interesting insights, on Sunday that is so left at the end of a life section for Hawaiians. Who wants to see the private providers, should not be on Sunday but no later than 11: 00, there before 9, because we have seen that the guys also soon give up.

  • Was fun to take the family, great place for souvenirs, and fun to haggle with the vendors. The vendors were all polite and overall the merchandise is pretty good. Just be prepared to walk a lot possibly to find that perfect souvenir.
  • "Don't forget to bring me back something!" is something we ALWAYS hear from the mainland when we come out to the islands. When you visit Hawaii, make a note to NOT MISS THIS PLACE! This is DEFINITELY the spot for souvenirs, island gear, and fresh cut fruit in an ice box. Located at the Aloha Stadium, this Swap Meet has vendors wrapped around the whole stadium. Everything starts looking the same after walking around, too. TIPS for coming here: - REMEMBER where you park your car. It took me a good 15 minutes to go back and look for my car. - Bring a few bottles of water and food to snack on. - Don't forget to wear some comfortable shoes and sunblock - Don't buy everything the moment you get there. WALK AROUND and keep note of the prices of the items you want to purchase e.g. T-shirts, Key chains, sarongs, etc. - Bring CASH. There's a good chance some vendors will let you haggle. - Open only on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. - Refer to their website for more information.
  • A MUST stop if you are looking for great prices on trinkets from the islands during your visit. If you find it in the gift shops you will mostly find it here and it will cost less. T-shirts, carry bags, jewelry, carvings, decals, and more. Food vendors as well as souvenirs. Fresh fruit, shave ice, fresh coconuts, pineapple bread, local jams, etc.... Wear good walking shoes and bring some water. Fun afternoon for a $1.
  • Best place in Oahu to grab suviniers!! Don't have to go to any of the expensive ABC stores on the corner.. This place had everything and half the price!! It was alot of fun walking around and buying things... I had to remember I can't fit everything in my suit case to go back home... lol
  • Lots of cool stuff here. Almost all the clothes are made by the same company, so it's not super hard to find the same print at multiple shops. Which is great if you're trying to match for a family. There is some bargaining that can be done in some boots, which we didn't know when we got there but figured out after a while. You have to know what you are willing to pay for something, and don't feel like you have to pay the price that's listed. It doesn't hurt to ask for something lower. I got some amazing stickers from the Honolulu sticker tent and a really cool steering wheel cover for $5!
