“The thing about Saint Kitts is that you can have the natural and exclusive vacation and in that it is still very unspoiled, both Saint Kitts and Nevis. We still have maintained our natural environment,” Jasmine Huggins, charge d’Affaires of the Embassy of Saint Christopher and Nevis in Taipei, told the Central News Agency at the fair on Saturday.
“We are not so overrun with tourists yet, so the person who travels to Saint Kitts can enjoy a peaceful and relaxing vacation,” she added.
Ms. Huggins said she hopes to attract more Taiwanese tourists to her country, which is rich in natural, cultural and historical attractions, ranging from Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park – a United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization World Heritage Site – to hot spring and crystal clear water along the coastline.
The best time for Taiwanese tourists to visit the Caribbean country is during winter, when there are Christmas celebrations, carnival and other activities, Huggins said.
