Trinidad among Condé Nast Traveler’s “50 Islands We Love”

Port of Spain, Trinidad – Lauded for its Carnival and warm welcome, Trinidad is one of Condé Nast Traveler magazine’s 50 Islands We Love.

“Whether they wear it, serve it, or invite us to join in, islanders deliver a welcome that sea and land alone cannot,” the magazine raves in its July issue.

Culled from Condé Nast readers’ polls, Trinidad is one of only 10 Caribbean destinations featured in the top 50 list of islands, which included picks from Europe, North America, the Pacific and Asia.

Director of Tourism and President of Trinidad and Tobago’s Tourism Development Company (TDC), Mr. Ernest Littles, said to be recognised among top brands in a competitive global tourism industry by Condé Nast Traveler is an invaluable boost to the destination’s marketing efforts. “We have been working in conjunction with Conde Nast (the world’s premiere travel magazine) to position Trinidad and Tobago as a top island destination for some time now”.

“Destination Trinidad and Tobago,” he added, “will benefit from this additional exposure on the world stage, even as we continue to develop our distinctive tourism product, through engagement of local communities, and improve to international benchmarks product and service standards”.

In addition to a full page photograph of a colourful band of young Moko Jumbies on towering stilts during Trinidad’s Carnival celebrations, steelpan – the national instrument which was invented on the island – also gained mention in the magazine feature as “the sound of Mardi Gras and calypso.”

Known as the “Culture Capital” of the Southern Caribbean, Trinidad continues to gain recognition for its distinct culture, growing reputation as a hub for business tourism and as a destination for meetings and conventions.
