Our day was filled with emerging ourselves into the Polynesian Culture. From learning various games to observing tribal traditions, the day was filled with great experiences. Wear your comfortable shoes!

Yes, there was a buffet of fish and different meat. You could eat the pork, but not everyone eats it if they want.
