CHINATOWN incorporates a rich mixture of cultures but maintains a sense of identity.
Before my daughter and I went shopping for produce in Chinatown in Honolulu and we found a wedding shop along the way. We popped in just for a peek.
At that time it was a couple of months before she was to get married and she found a beautiful dress at Downtown Fashion - Chinatown - 108 N King St Honolulu HI 96817 ... The wedding dress, veil, garter, shoes, tiara and the alteration for her size 1 frame..... All for $250!! The Chinese have some of the best seamstresses in the world and just by pinning a few pins the alteration came out perfect!
My daughter then ordered her bouquet from Lin's Lei and Flower Shop located at 1017 Maunakea St # A Honolulu, HI 96817 - (808) 537-4112 for $85.00!
Check the picture to the right out....all from Chinatown!
We went shopping for produce on a open mall called Kekaulike Street Mall between North King and Hotel Streets. We came across the fruit stand with the exotic fruit Rambutan. It's bright red and hairy looking (weird looking) and in Malay and Indonesian languages it means hairy.. lol. In the middle it looks like the lychee fruit with a seed in the middle. Tangy and delicious!
Thorughout the whole Kekaulike Street Mall the vendors outside are just a smidgen of what lurks inside the stores beyond the stands!
Our Honolulu Chinatown is not only Chinese shops but Vietnamese, Japanese, Korean and Filipino and more. So, you can imagine the variety of wares and items for sale!
Supporting our local Honolulu businesses in Downtown Honolulu in Chinatown is a given. No matter what, there are bargains, fresh produce, meats, fish and poultry and items from around the world!
