A Roundtrip Through Suriname: Paramaribo

A Roundtrip Through Suriname: Paramaribo, Paramaribo, Suriname (B)

Last year, I went to Suriname because of my study and discovered this beautiful country. In April, we spent two weeks traveling through Suriname. We have seen the capital Paramaribo, but we also have seen the jungle and did some adventurous activities. Suriname does not have a lot of tourists, but that can be seen as an advantage. You will better experience the destination and get more interaction with the locals. This country is not well-known for travellers, so that inspires me to tell you why Suriname is actually totally worth the visit and I will try to convince you to visit Suriname. In this article, I first will inform you about the capital Paramaribo. Then in another article, I will tell you some more about the internal of Suriname, the jungle and the great things you can do and discover there.

Paramaribo is the biggest and actually the only real city in Suriname. The historical city centre is part of the UNESCO world heritage list and features many places which are worth the visit. The language that is spoken, is Dutch. However, most of the inhabitants can speak English as well, so if you can speak English it will not be a problem to communicate. Suriname used to be a Dutch colony and in the past, there was question of slavery. Nowadays, you can still find back this history by several tourist attractions. The historical past makes Suriname worth the visit: it is a country with a story. The best way to go around Paramaribo in my opinion, is by walking. The city is not really big and by walking you can see everything very good. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
