The capital of Curaçao is the biggest (if only) city in the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao). Its four historical neighbourhoods are rather unusual in the Caribbean: their typical Dutch architecture has earned them a UNESCO World Heritage status. Yet the city hasn't fully tapped into this renowned status. In any of these neighbourhoods, perfectly well restored houses sit next to crumbling buildings. But this is far from being disappointing, it just illustrates Curaçao's economical situation and prevents the feeling of being in an artificial, tourist-perfect world. Each neighbourhood has its on personality: the hyper touristic Punda, the quickly gentrifying Dutch hipster ghetto of Pietermaai, the lively Otrobanda and historic Scharloo. Outside these neighbourhoods, Willemstad is more a mix of suburbs, oil plant and unremarkable beaches. The overall vibe, however, is one of cool attitude and fun.
