Trinidad is full of energy (both in the form of oil and natural gas) as well as the energy and vitality of its people. Home of calypso, steelpan, an educated and savvy population, with one of the largest carnivals in the world, Trinidad is as cosmopolitan as it is filled with amazing natural attractions, that reflect the South American continent. Trinidad is one of the four best places in the world for bird-watching and tons of unexplored nature. Trinidad is best enjoyed with a local.
The cultural blend that exists in Trinidad, cannot be found elsewhere in the world. Consider that Trinidad’s culture is a mix of influences from Africa, India, England, Europe, China, Middle East. This mixture is reflected in the music, art, food, festivals, holidays, and the Trini way of life.
Where else in the world can you find a black man singing an Indian bhajan or a Chinese guy with the surname “Singh”? There are Muslim festivals (Hosay and Eid al Fitr) celebrated by Hindus or Hindu celebrations observed by Christians (Phagwa and Divali). And it’s more than mere celebrations or observances. It’s a way of life that’s all about inclusiveness.
