Fodor's Review

This thrice-weekly outdoor bazaar attracts hundreds of vendors and even more bargain hunters. Every Hawaiian souvenir imaginable can be found here, from coral shell necklaces to bikinis, as well as a variety of ethnic wares, from Chinese brocade dresses to Japanese pottery. There are also ethnic foods, silk flowers, and luggage in aloha floral prints. Shoppers must wade through the typical sprinkling of used and stolen goods to find value. Wear comfortable shoes, use sunscreen,

and bring bottled water. The flea market takes place in the Aloha Stadium parking lot Wednesday and Saturday from 8 to 3; Sunday from 6:30 to 3. Admission is $1 per person ages 12 and up.

Several shuttle companies serve Aloha Stadium for the swap meet, including VIP Shuttle (Tel. 808/839–0911); Reliable Shuttle (808/924–9292); and Hawaii Supertransit (Tel. 808/841–2928). The average cost is $12 per person, round-trip. For a cheaper but slower ride, take TheBus (www.thebus.org).

Aloha Stadium Swap Meet Review

The market is open only on Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday, $1 entrance fee. We took a shuttle for $4 (30 min trip). It was fine but next time we would take the local bus $2.50 (1 hour trip from Ali Wai canal) as then we would have no time concerns. The market is huge, in 3 hours we didn't do a quarter of it. There is a lot of duplication though. Great tourist stuff and good prices, you can bargain with vendors too. Jewelry, tshirts, towels, purses,

keychains, paintings, dresses, etc. Wear good shoes, bring water and a hat & something to carry your purchases in. Lots of fun!
