My friend and I spent a morning in Willemstad and saw Handelskade. It was very nice to see and definitely worth it although it does not take too much time.

A really good place for shooping. A great mix with local, cheap shops and known brand stores. Or just enjoy a drink and watch the busy "city life".

It was amazing. There were open markets an fishing boats selling their fresh catches. There are shops for all budgets. I loved walking the streets. The buildings are so colorful and well maintained. We too the bus into town and felt completely safe.

The colours are well kept, especially looking from across the water! Its nice to see, however, this is me judging from a Dutch perspective haha (where all houses almost have the same colour).

It is a lovely place to walk around or for a few sundowners. The vibe is relaxed and the 'kade' views are just nice. I truly like it here.
