Let's be honest, Port-au-Prince is by no means a pretty sight, but it's not as bad as its reputation either. The city is still recovering from the devastating 2010 earthquake. Debris are everywhere, though new grey concrete and cement have taken over. Sightseeing in Port-au-Prince are normally confined to the downtown area which includes: Iron Market, remains of the cathedral, tower of the not-so-eternal flame (it has never been lit), the museum, and a wicked voodoo art gallery. Walking around can be very overwhelming as streets are chaotic and crowded with vendors, pedestrians, buses, mototaxi, and, of course, white Toyota Landcruisers with UN or NGO logos. However, if you dare, you can always jump on one of the many mototaxi and let the driver navigate the madness. For a bit of perspective, and maybe a sundowner, take the trip up to the observatory in the hills for panoramic views over the city and valley. And from that distance, Port-au-Prince can be very appealing.
