I booked this tour before I arrived as I wanted to make sure that I utilized my time well so as not to miss out because tours are full. I picked up my ticket at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel Tour desk but learned that I had to walk over to the back side of the Hyatt Regency Hotel (across from Kings Village) to catch the tour bus. There were many people there and many tour buses and I was not sure how I would know which one of the tour buses I am supposed to get on. After checking with several of the bus drivers, I finally found the bus that I am supposed to be on. It was a beautiful hour's ride through the country side to get to the Polynesian Cultural Center which was located on the north side of the island.
Later that afternoon, each polynesian village put on a dance show on a barge that sailed through the village river. After this show, we went to the main dining area to enjoy our LUAU. There we saw how the pig was roasted Hawaiian style (covered in a pit). We were entertained with traditional polynesian music and dancing. After dinner, we ventured over to their Pacific Theatre where they did an amazing performance and light show called "Ha" meaning "Breath of Life". By then, it was 9:30 PM and time to head to our tour bus for our trip back to our hotel. You can also purchase tickets directly from the PCC at www.polynesia.com. The PCC is huge...allow one full day to see everything and take in the IMAX theatre as well.
