Let’s scream “Goedenmiddag” which means good day in Dutch as we cross the border and come back on the Dutch side. We will drive slowly across the border so we can take pictures of the flags and the border monument while the tour guide explains you about the date of the treaty that you will see there. We will now head on back to the cruise facility or you can choose to get drop off in down town Philipsburg so you can continue your shopping spree, for what you didn’t find in Marigot you will surely get here. Down town Philipsburg is the eye candy for shoppers, nowhere in the world will you find two back to back streets (Front Street and Back street) with a variety of fine jewelry with the best prices you won’t get anywhere else. You can also visit the Dutch side museum and another beach which is parallel of the shopping area or visit the home of our national liqueur, The Guava berry Emporium. Go inside and sample some flavors and see how we make our local Rum. If you choose to get drop off, you will have three ways on how to get back to the ship.
