Street art big hit in Kakaako

By Associated Press in Honolulu | China Daily | Updated: 2014-08-26 07:16

Honolulu is famous for golden sand beaches and big waves. But the city's warehouse district, called Kakaako, is famous for a different sort of attraction. You won't find kitschy Hawaiian souvenir shops or hordes of tourists here, but you will find a thriving urban arts scene, with colorful street murals so big they stretch across walls and sometimes entire sides of buildings.

In one mural, a skeleton with a surfboard in tow flashes the shaka, a Hawaiian hand-greeting. In another, a snarling panda ferociously snaps its jaws near a doe-eyed maiden. A third shows a banana in a grass skirt dancing a hula with a talking pineapple.

Kakaako sits between Honolulu's downtown and the touristy Waikiki.
