So to explore more the feel about the island, lets started the journey…..
‘Here is the brief of the island ‘
The Turks and Caicos Islands or TCI for short, are a British Overseas Territory consisting of the larger Caicos Islands and smaller Turks Islands, two groups of tropical islands in the Lucayan Archipelago of the Caribbean Sea and northern Caribbean region.
The Turks and Caicos Islands lie southeast of Mayaguana in the Bahamas island chain and north of the island of Hispaniola and the other Antilles archipelago islands. Cockburn Town, the capital since 1766, is situated on Grand Turk Island about 1,042 kilometres (647 mi) east-southeast of Miami, United States. The islands have a total land area of 430 square kilometres (170 sq mi).

Hopefully this covered up of where am now and the hotel am work with, is a such good opportunity to came here . Totally different culture and atmosphere . Unlike when am in Dubai or Abu Dhabi . Here we are at the accommodation but still there is something here and there need to adapt well .
From where you can found the best place for daily needs until you need to collect some coin just for a laundry :).
The weather is really beach type , have a breeze but being this month july until august is humid . Then September start to more cold until March.
The transportation is quite hard if we don’t have car , especially if your work place far from accommodation. But lucky me not far from accommodation to hotel so am choose bicycle for transportation.
There is so much of restaurant and cafe here but because of they targeting for tourist so the price is is expensive , so for sometime only am choose to dine outside 🙂 , am prefer make alone food in the house.
