So when I set out to recap my trip to The Bahamas I had planned to bang out three or four posts within two weeks, but as you can see that hasn’t happened. I’m going to condense the rest of the trip into this last post, the reason is there’s so much to do in this country, if you’re considering taking a trip there I want to share as much as I can with you. Plus, this is also my last post on The Bahamas because I have so many more trips and dream destinations I’d like to share with you!
The country’s capital city, located on New Providence Island is a major port of call for cruise ships. Bay Street is tourist central with tons of shops, restaurants and the famous Straw Market.
The Straw Market is a must, it’s a huge pavilion right at the harbour filled top to bottom with vendors selling their wares. You’ll find souvenirs, sarongs, straw hats and anything and everything the can print The Bahamas on. Be warned: you will be cooed at by every vendor. They are all selling the same things, they all want to make a sale. They will call you every flattering name in the book, if you’re not interested just say “Thank You” and keep walking.
