Fia Fia Luau is offering a bit of a niche among all luaus on Oahu. It might be described as boutique-ish due to being small, and the buffet offerings are quite more gourmet but it is one of the best places to go during vacation. Fia Fia Luau is providing all the things that you can expect in a Luau, a shell lei greeting, cultural demonstration, sunset ocean view, tasty traditional dinner, tropical drinks, and colorful Polynesian music and dance. They are certainly offering all those features, but the thing that sets it apart is the master of ceremonies.
A performer will greet you when you arrive at the FIa Fia Luau. You will either receive a shell or flower lei when you enter. The first stop is taking a photo with Chief Sielu, together with the other performers of the show. You will then be showed to your set, encountered to walk around and learn more regarding the Polynesian cultures. For a family adventure, the kids will get in line for complimentary tattoos and someone will teach them how to start a fire. You will also see special tables with souvenirs for sale and Hawaiian crafts.
The Battleship Missouri Memorial is the most famous battleship in the whole world. Being in this kind of place is a huge honor and you’re lucky enough to know that they are offering 2 daily tours with so much to explore on your own. General Admission ticket includes the main tour that will take you to the same spot where WWII has ended and is completely ADA accessible. The second tour is the “The Heart of Missouri” that will take you deeper inside the ship’s inner workings including the gun turrets and engine rooms. The “The heart of Missouri” tour is not open to kids below 10 and not ADA accessible.
There is no near store near the battleship that’s why it’s highly recommended to bring bottled beverages during the visit in order to keep yourself hydrated. In addition to that, it is also suggested to wear closed toed shoes for self-protection and take extra care when you are moving through the passageways and doorways with low ceilings. The safety briefings are also part of the tour in order for you to obtain a satisfying experience.
