A Cultural Feast ♥

So to be honest, the Polynesian Cultural Center at first.. didn't quite seem like my cup of tea. But this place grew on me. The HA! Breath of Life show was simply amazing, but the luau? Maybe not so much. Food was mediocre, Hawaiian fare. But I figured we weren't really here for the food anyways. However, it was definitely an educational, interactive and fun way to learn about the rich Hawaiian culture. I have to add.. the male performers also had a great sense of humor. (And well, not to mention.. good looking too.)

What I especially appreciated about the staff/employees aside from their genuine and warm welcomes, is that they're actually students at BYU-Hawaii. The profits from the PCC fund these students' education and provide scholarship programs, which is so awesome! Our tour guide was from Samoa, and he was studying to be an engineer I believe.

My grandma especially loved the shows. From the cultural dances, to the engaging and interactive performances, she probably enjoyed this place the most. As for me, I enjoyed visiting the different villages (Hawaii, Samoa, Aotearoa - New Zealand, Fiji, Tahiti, Tonga and the Marquesas Islands), and learning about the differences between them, and their history/influence on Hawaii. Although I would recommend checking this place out, once is more than enough for me. Have you guys been to the PCC? If so, what are some of your favorite moments?
