The Polynesian Cultural Center stop while on our Hoku Grand Island tour was truly a highlight! The brief overview of the Polynesian Triangle, the TuTu Sweet House treats and great souvenir shopping!

This is a must do. It is entertaining as well as educational. We loved the tour guides and the dinner after. There are a few different options for dinner and they are great.
