There's a Tiffany's on every corner. Check out the ABC stores every 100 yds or so, too. At night music and street performers!

This is the main shopping street in Honolulu, directly opposite the main part of Waikiki Beach. There are arcades, malls, specialty shops, outlet stores, and all the high end designer label stores. You can't come to Honolulu without having a look at Kalakaua Ave.
