Bridgetown



What do you wish you had known about this particular city/country before moving there?

Camping is illegal on the island so don't bring your gear! Also, despite this being a tourist destination, Bajans are ATROCIOUS when it comes to customer service. Drop your expectations and then lower them some more - money or tips do not help, smiling does not help, being friendly does not help - giving the proper greeting (good morning, good afternoon, good evening) can help occasionally. Customer service simply isn't something people bother with, particularly outside touristed areas, and everything moves extremely slowly. - Jul 11, 2016
