Oahu is much better.

Waikiki is a shopper's paradise. Lots of shopping centers there. DFS Galleria, Royal Hawaiian Shpping Center are two of them.

All of the major hotels have shops.

There are over 50 ABC stores in Waikiki.

Also Ala Moana Shopping Center just across the bridge for Waikiki.

Victoria Ward Center is just past Ala Moana Center (toward downtown).

Chinatown & Aloha Tower Marketplace are in the downtown area. Lots of inexpensive shopping in Chinatown. Aloha Tower Marketplace is rather expensive, but stilll nice to stroll through.

Also Aloha Stadium Swap Meet.

Pearlridge Shopping Center in Aiea is huge. Located about 2 miles past Aloha Stadium

Waikele Outlets

The BEST shopping is definitely on Oahu - The Waikele Outlet factory mall is incredible!

Up to 90% off retail at Barneys New York, Saks Fifth Ave, Ralph Lauren, Coach, Max Mara, Banana Republic... oh god they've got everything - you have to go!!

It's about 30 minutes from Waikiki. We got a shuttle out there which cost $18 return from our hotel.

I'd seriously go back to Hawaii just to go shopping there!
