Unlike most of the English-speaking Caribbean, Trinidad and Tobago is a primarily industrialised country whose economy is based on petroleum and chemicals. Trinidad doesn't rely on tourism as a source of revenue. Trinidad and Tobago is famous for its pre-Lenten Carnival and as the birthplace of steelpan, calypso, soca, and limbo.

Scarborough7 January 2009

Scarborough, Tobago is the largest town on Tobago, one of the two islands of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Its population is around 17,000, almost one third of the population of the island. The town is dominated by Fort King George, an 18th century fortification named for King George III which now hosts an archaeologic museum. Scarborough's deepwater harbour was built in 1991; before that ships were forced to anchor offshore. Visit the Fort and the Museum, then off to the Pigeon Point beach.
