Admire the Middle Eastern and Indian architecture of Shangri La, formerly the private home of heiress Doris Duke. Today, the site is known as a center for Islamic arts and culture, and you can see metalwork, mosaics, vases, and textiles in brilliant colors. Inside the house, you'll also see rare artifacts in various temporary exhibits. Stroll the gardens to see a collection of tropical plants, as well as a pool and water terraces that flow into each other on a cliff overlooking the coast. Tours begin and end at the Honolulu Museum of Art and must be reserved in advance.

I decided to go to see the recommendation on the net this time. However, i needed to make a reservation in advance, so I made a reservation from Japan because I told them i couldn't go when the capacity was full. It's amazing that each one was a private home. The inside is wonderful, but the garden is also amazing!! Because there is only a guided tour here, please note that it is not possible to enter immediately by going suddenly, and it goes to the Honolulu Museum of Art which manages the tour once, and it takes a tour bus from there, so the person who stays in Waikiki In the opposite direction to Shangri-La, you can go to the museum, take a bus past Waikiki, and go near Diamond Head. It is a directions note when going by bus ~ also, i got a fan after arrival as it was on other people's blog, this was had to be returned on the way back ^^
