Ala Moana Center ~ the world's largest outdoor shopping mall, Ala Moana is home to nearly 300 retail stores from high-end luxury brands to department and specialty stores. There are plenty of dining options including an extensive food court, plus an entire floor of restaurants on the center's Ho'okipa Terrace.
Every year during late May thousands of people gather on the Ala Moana Beach in Hawaii to attend the annual Lantern Floating ceremony. Each lit lantern carries a message from the heart and it honours the loved ones that passed on. Last May over 40 000 of them were released to the ocean with the glorious sunset in the distance.
