Oahu Luaus at the Polynesian Cultural CenterO
f all of the places on Oahu to spend a day, there may not be one that is more culturally important than the Polynesian Cultural Center. The center, located on the North Shore of the island in the tiny town of La’ie, is operated by the students of nearby BYU-Hawaiii and stands as an homage to the history of the islands. Here, visitors spend their day exploring the islands of Polynesia, making their way to the island villages to discover the traditions of each island. The star of a visit to the Polynesian Cultural Center is the evening luau that takes place, complete with a thrilling show and all you can eat buffet.
Though you do not have to spend an entire day at the Polynesian Cultural Center, it is highly recommended. Visiting each island village brings the many traditions and cultures of Polynesia to life, sharing the cultural importance of Polynesia while letting you take part in the various activities that are featured at each. These fun activities and traditions come full circle at the evening’s luau, making a day at the park vitally important for the full experience of visiting Polynesia.
As the day starts to draw to a close, the Polynesian Cultural Center luau
begins, and what a luau it is. The all you can eat buffet kicks off the festivities, and the fun doesn’t stop until the show is over. A live performance highlights the evening, telling the story of a young man’s journey through life using traditional storytelling that combine music, dancing, and performance, while bringing the heritage and culture of Polynesia to life. The captivating show is one of the very best in Hawaii, and if this is your choice for your Oahu luau, you will not be disappointed.
Oahu’s Polynesian Cultural Center is one of the top places to visit on the island, and should be at the top of your Hawaii to do list. Make an entire day out of the center and stay for the luau, your whole day spent immersed in the customs, traditions, and rituals of Polynesia.
