A day in Nassau Downtown
Last weekend we took a day trip to Nassau with my family. We traveled to Nassau by Bahamasair. Their services were excellent. Our flight was late by 10 minutes, but they helped us check in fast, and we arrived on time. The cabin crew was as good as the ground staff. In Nassau, our day was packed with activities. We went to the Nassau Downtown which had a lot to see and shop. We first went to the Pirates of Nassau Museum. Then went shopping at Bay Street, which had many duty free shops. In the evening, we went for a quiet walk at the Cable Beach.
Holiday in Nassau
My partner and I went for a holiday in Bahamas and chose to visit Nassau first. We went to Nassau by Delta Airline, each of us on economy class ticket. We liked their services as they were very friendly and pleasant. The flight was smooth, and we arrived in Nassau on time. In Nassau, we stayed at the British Colonial Hilton Nassau, which is just by the beach. We visited the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas, went shopping for beautiful handmade products at the Nassau Straw Market, where I got myself a stunning hand made hat perfect for the weather in Nassau. We also went snorkeling with the Nassau Snorkel Bahamas Adventure Tours.
