About these ratings

The American tobacco heiress Doris Duke spent her winters living in this opulent oceanfront home near Diamond Head. She began building it in 1937 and then spent nearly 60 years filling its walls and rooms with art and furniture from Egypt, India, Morocco, Spain, Syria, and Turkey. By the end of her life, she had amassed approximately 3,500 objects, which are now available for you to see on a tour of her home. Art lovers should definitely make plans to stop by Shangri La, but you should also consider visiting the home if you're just a teensy bit curious about the enigmatic heiress.

You'll need to make a reservation several months in advance to visit Shangri La. The two-and-a-half hour tours, held Wednesday through Saturday, begin at the Honolulu Museum of Art at 9 and 10 a.m., and 1:30 p.m. Admission is $25 and includes transportation to and from the estate. Visit the home's website for further details.
