Senyor in Hawaii: Waikiki

Aloha! Welcome to Paradise!

Celebrating my Dad and brother's birthday, we decided to fly off to the beautiful island of Oahu.

Landing in Honolulu, we stayed in Ambassador Hotel, just on the corner of Namahana street in Waikīkī.

We had this awesome view just outside of our room.

After checking in and getting settled, it was time to explore the city.

There were countless tourist buses driving around the streets of Waikiki

After our bus ride, first stop is Hawaii's premiere shopping center, Ala Moana Center.

We made our way to its food court and searched for something to eat.

I was craving for some Mexican food so I found myself lining up at Señor Pepe.

Refreshing Horchata for me.

After our late lunch, we went on and strolled around the shopping center.

This is the first time after many years that we were able to travel as one big family.

The shopping center sure has big brands in it. Not to mention it has luxury fashion brands.

We went back outside, waited for our turn to board the Pink Link of the Waikiki Trolley and made our way near the shoreline.

This alley is a stretch full of surf boards on both sides, maybe for rent, I don't know.

We failed to get seats in one of the bars along the shore to catch the sunset since the next batch of reservations are for the 9PM time slot. We just decided to do some early shopping until it was dinner time.

This is the only photo I have that clearly shows Hawaii's Diamond Head.

The weather was perfect for people and kids alike to goof around, enjoying every bit of it.

The stretch of Kalakaua Avenue from Kaiulani Avenue.

The Moana Surfrider, a classic resort hotel that dates back to 1901 as seen along Kalakaua Avenue.

A view of Lewers street from Kalakaua Avenue.

We dropped by 88 Tees, Hawaii's own funky boutique selling trendy clothing and accessories, and souvenirs.

You won't miss the store's unmistakable entrance because of it being one of a kind.

Quick stop in one of the many ABC Stores in Honolulu.

The busy street of Beachwalk.

That's about it for our first day/night in the busy yet beautiful streets of Waikiki.
