For part 2 of our Caribbean trip.. I'll just give you the tour of the beautiful Sint Maarten. Mainly because I haven't had any chance to finish editing rest of the photos but I digress... so here we go, the multicultural, and island divided between the French & Dutch... Sint Maarten:
We decided to utilize their local taxi tour guide instead of cruise line's excursion package to save us some cash.. after all it still takes us to all the places we wanted to see. So starting off in the French part of the island:
We stopped by the tail end of a nudist colony/beach.. the Orient Beach:
Might I add.. this is our first time ever at a nude beach, and no we did not participate :p
Here are some interesting scenery and lifestyle from the French side:
After exploring through the French side, we arrived into the Dutch territory and on to Maho Beach.. my "must-visit" spot for the whole Caribbean trip. For those who don't know, Maho Beach is located adjacent to the Princess Juliana International Airport! Where all the incoming planes must fly over to land on the run way! Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to wait for a 747 to fly by.. but hey at least now I can say I've experienced it :p
Last stop.. Philipsburg, the main town and capital of Sint Maarten:
Stay tune for part 3... back on the US soil, Saint Thomas of US Virgin Islands! Of course for those of you who missed part 1, you can always check it out HERE.
