Adgang til Polynesian Cultural Center
The seven island villages showcase the Polynesian cultures of Hawaii, Samoa, the Marquesas, Fiji, New Zealand, Tonga and Tahiti. Real Polynesians share knowledge about their traditional customs and you can watch the demonstrations or join in. Take a canoe ride on the lagoon and cook a meal in the Samoan village. Kids will love getting ink tattoos, spear throwing, ukulele lessons and fishing.
No evening at the center would be complete without "Ha: Breath of Life", an ancient, yet universal tale. Over 100 native performers dressed in authentic attire will share their traditions and culture with you. See exciting fire walkers and knife dancers.

Friends recommended this tour and it was excellent! One day is not enough time to really experience the information offered here on all the cultures that came together to live in Hawaii. For example, we did not have time to see all the demonstrations of cooking, weaving, etc. The main shows for each nation were very informative as well as fun!
This is a great way to immerse yourself in the culture of the Polynesian Islands. You'll learn about their history, food, travel, belief systems, dances, music and society in general. You can explore on your own, or take a guide. There are shows at the different sites throughout the day: learn how to make coconut bread, dance the hula, make coconut oil, etc. Some of the show hosts are very funny, they are all engaging. We upgraded to the Hawaiian luau, which I would call a dinner theatre. The show was entertaining, but similar to some things we had seen throughout the day. There were a few opportunities for audience participation. The dinner portion was basically a buffet of Hawaiian food there are a LOT of people to feed. It wasn't really what I was expecting. Ha, Breath of Life is the major show in the evening and it was very well done. If you do nothing else, see this show. It was different than the day's activities and worthwhile seeing. It's a busy but well maintained facility.
Villages and big show all great - buffet wasn't very good
