  • After a long time I went to Ala Moana Shopping Center. Arrived aboard the trolley bus from Waikiki, but became disoriented. At center stage is am asked about 30 bands from 11:00. Japan food shops number less than the food court before the audience and opened a new fault felt it go to a new section. (Location is free)

  • Super at Ala Moana Center also has stores in Hawaii and is writing to eat but I like best. Now the new supermarket vegetable aisle and fruit store has a nice feel. Best poke, spicy and soy sauce. Can I buy in small containers. You can also taste. You can buy as a bowl. Can I buy members great deals on things more and become a member of the Super. Was told the Clerk to forget if you forgot your card to the registered phone number. So my mother-in-law has made card membership card where can I make is not knowing, ask the clerk. I want to make at the service counter. This supermarket is some cheap souvenir and coffee too.

  • This is an amazing more with so many options in Sydney shops to look at. Upstairs and down with a comprehensive food court in a variety of shots to keep you busy. I found them all to be very tidy and easy to navigate with a lot of architectural variation. This is a 5 out of 5 stars from me.
  • Free parking if you're prepared to wait a bit for a space. Lots of high end stores. A small kids outdoor play area. Good selection of Japanese food in their food court. Also other food styles in main food court. Good for a day if it's wet or you need an alternative to the beach.
  • So far it's been enjoyable, however there's not too many staff members available to ask questions about how to use the machines... it's kind of "just look at the pictures" on each machine...pretty self explanatory?? Yes, for most but still would be nice to get special tips on... what's the best # of reps for beginners, or maybe how many lbs should a beginner start with so they don't hurt themselves,...even breathing...when do we inhale or exhale when using the machines to lose weight or build muscles?
  • This mall is absolutely huge and I have never been more happy about a shopping place. Plan to stay a while because of its size. It's also super awesome because you can find a forever 21 in one spot then a Prada store right around the corner. There's a perfect blend of very high end and average clothing stores. There's also plenty of places to eat from pizza to Chinese to burgers and shrimp. This place never let's me down although it is outside so a good part of it is uncovered, can be kind of a drag if it's raining
  • Probably the biggest mall I've ever seen. Food court has a crazy amount of options and there is pretty much every store you could want. There are also viewing areas and I got to see a Hawaiian Hulu Dancing show. They put a few on each day and it is a great way to spend some time and definitely a great way to get a taste of real Hawaiian culture. I recommend grabbing some food and sitting down, relaxing, and watching one of these shows! The stores are great quality as well as all the restrooms and public areas. The stores are pretty well organized but it's hard to find some and you definitely need to look at the maps sometimes to find your way. Of course you would expect that given the size of the mall. Definitely recommend checking Ala Moana out at least once during a trip to Hawaii!
