Hawaii is an archipelago with many beautiful islands. It is the only state in the country that is actually located outside of North America. A visit to the islands takes you to a different world, which is why it is advised that you join West Coast bus tours to Hawaii to make the most out of your visit. When you join a bus tour, you will be following a well-designed itinerary that covers the most important attractions in Hawaii—attractions you wouldn’t want to miss because who knows when you’re going to get the chance to visit again?
If your reason for joining West Coast bus tours is to experience an amazing cultural immersion, you will be in for a treat when you join us! With our West Coast bus tours, you will get to enjoy at least these three cultural experiences when we visit the Polynesian Cultural Center:
Immerse yourself in village life
The Polynesian Cultural Center is home to recreated island villages from different Pacific Island nations. These include a village in Hawaii, Samoa, Maori New Zealand (Aotearoa), Fiji, Tahiti, and Tonga. These villages cover about 42 acres of the cultural center, offering you a firsthand look at the villagers’ local life.
Learn about their history, traditions, and culture as narrated by natives of each village.
Watch a spectacular show of traditional Polynesian song and dance
Immerse yourself in a breathtaking spectacle of dance, music, and blazing fireknives as you watch Hā: Breath of Life, a story about an islander named Mana and his beloved. Over 100 islanders participate in the show. Prepare to be transported to another place and time!
Participate in activities
As you visit the recreated island villages, you will also can learn about customs and traditions, and truly experience these on your own. If there is still time, you can learn how to make fire by rubbing two sticks together, play a traditional Maori stick game, partake in traditional Samoan cooking, learn the Tahitian spear throw, learn how to dance the ma’ulu’ulu sitting dance of Tonga, and of course, Hawaii’s hula.
Our West Coast bus tours to Hawaii also gives you ample time to explore on your own, which means you get to plan your own cultural discovery and immersion.
