We visited the Kong Lung Market Center a couple times - we ate at the Bistro and the Kilauea Bakery (a few times for the guava chocolate macaroons). We bought some gifts at the Kong Lung Trading company and loved the Black Dog Gallery.

This is a great place to visit for speciality shops and several places to eat. They have quite a few good information boards around the area giving the history of the area and Kong Lung.

This small shopping center is a great little gem! We stopped for lunch and found a great outdoor bistro with wonderful food and we shopped in many of the stores.

This was a small unique shopping area. This store was started when sugar cane was a flourishing business. Worth a short visit and a brief stroll through a few other boutiques and a sporting goods store.
