Housed in the old Kilauea Sugar Plantation company store, Kong Lung Trading offers an original and ever-changing selection of gifts, home decor, personal accessories, and apparel presented in an uplifting, fine-design atmosphere. The boutique is upscale without pretension, a welcoming institution in downtown Kilauea known for its friendly staff, including three dogs, a bird, and gorgeous displays. There is something here for every person of any age-at prices to meet any price range.

Great place to stop for unusual gifts, coffee, decor, baby and clothing items. The complex includes the Kilauea Bakery, Soap Factory and three other shops in a peaceful dog friendly courtyard. The Bakery has a book cart where patrons can borrow donated books

It always seems relaxing to stop in and visit this shop. Lot's of stuff to peruse - clothing, hats, books, art pieces, ceramics, a bit of everything - presented in an appealing way that feels almost like visiting a museum (don't worry, all very approachable)....More

Stumbled upon this adorable, historic shopping area when looking for an ATM. I needed cash to visit the Lighthouse! Loved the Island Soap company shop and the galleries. Very well done with the historical aspects.

Upon entering the store we said hello to the saleswoman and she replied back: "hi" like an annoyed teenager and continued by without asking if we would like help. She probably rolled her eyes, but I was too busy looking around to really notice. The...More

This shop is one of nicest places to shop we've been to on the Kauai. It's actually on the way to the Kilauea Lighthouse, so not that out of the way. A good combination trip. But from the outside, just driving by, you'd never guess...More

She was only interested in making a sale rather than helping me. After rudely ignoring me for a bigger sale, she accused me of hiding the merchandise tag even though she had it the whole time. Then when my boyfriend tried to pay she disappeared...More

If you're looking for Hawaiian tourist items, this store is not for you. But if you're looking for unusual gifts that you're not likely to find elsewhere, this store is the best! They have a wide variety: jewelry, shirts, beautiful books, unusual note and greeting...More
