My First Visit in Nassau Bahamas

The capital and the largest city of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas is Nassau. This place is also the commercial centre of Bahamas and considered as the business district. According to the 2010 census, Nassau has a population of at least 250K and is on the island of New Providence. Did you know that Nassau was considered historically to be a stronghold of pirates? That's what I heard ... most people say that.Isn't this beautiful? Nassau has an attractive harbor right? Most of the buildings are colorful, colonial architecture are very much visible, and this port is really busy. This place has tropical climate and Nassau is a popular tourist destination in Bahamas.

From the ship, I could tell that New Providence is relatively flat and a low-lying land intersected by low ridges. The gigantic and beautiful building that you see in the picture above is The Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island. It's so magnifiscent that upon arrival on the port, tourists will be drawn to visit that place first and foremost. The resort has 6,000 Bahamian employees...such gigantic business huh?

We took a van and head to Atlantis and the fare is only $5/person. We stroll for few hours, shop a lil bit, have a coffee at starbucks, used the wifi in nearby hotels, and we were back to the port of Nassau on the ferry ride that costs only $3. Oh I enjoyed the ferry ride best! The view is spectacular and the Atlantis is truly grand! Planning to cruise? Visit Bahamas. You will enjoy it!
