Willemstad City Center
The capital is divided into two sections by the Sint Annabaai: Punda and Otrobanda. The two sections of the island are joined by a floating bridge: the Emmabrug. Both city centers have a unique architecture and are protected by fortresses dating back to 1630. In Punda you can easily find your way through the shopping streets. If you are looking for jewelry, modern clothes or electrical appliances from popular brands, you are in the right place. You must visit Punda when you are in Curaçao because of it's many monumental architectural buildings.
Otrobanda has one long and popular shopping street. It is a smaller city centre and literally means ‘the other side’. People in Curaçao like to shop in this street because of great deals. A walk through the prestigious Hotel Kura Hulanda Hotel is recommended. This hotel is built within a historical city area and has its own museum. In Brionplein you will find different restaurants and bars with a lovely view on the city quay. The Riffort Village also borders the Brionplein. It is a shopping centre built in the old fortress.

You just stop near a shop, buy your goods and go on driving.
