USA -->  HAWAI -->  Polynesian Cultural Center
Billed as Hawaii's favourite visitor attraction, the Polynesian Cultural Center introduces the various cultures of the region through recreations of seven Polynesian villages with interactive games and displays of traditional crafts. Although obviously thoroughly touristy, it does provide an interesting introduction to Polynesia in an animated way.

Attractions include watching islanders carve tiki figures, wield fire knives and climb four-storey trees in bare feet amid 42 acres of beautiful tropical land. In the evening, there are shows enacting war dances and wedding ceremonies as well as a luau (the traditional Hawaiian feast featuring roast pig).

Because this is such a popular feature on the tourist circuit, it tends to get booked up in advance, so reservations are required. Since seating for the night shows is determined by the order that reservations are made, book as far in advance as possible, even before you leave home if you can.
