Keo's, a wonderful Thai restaurant in Waikiki, where we had dinner. The restaurant was filled with fresh flowers and incredible statues.
Kalakaua Avenue was like the Rodeo Drive of Honolulu. It was filled with extremely expensive stores like Prada, Tiffany & Co., Hermes, etc. Waikiki was over-run with Japanese tourists! Apparently, there is one European tourist to every 100 Japanese tourists in Oahu!
