We took a scenic 5-Hour sightseeing tour to explore both sides of the island - Sint Maarten (the Dutch side) and Saint Martin (the French side); visited the capital city of Phillisburg (Dutch side); explored the village of Marigot (French side, its street shops and a trendy West Indies Shopping Mall; breathtaking views of the Caribbean; and learn about the cultural history of the island.

St. Maarten/St. Martin is the smallest island in the world ever to have been partitioned between two different nations. Saint Martin, the French side, tend to emphasize on elegance and luxury with an easy-going lifestyle while Sint Maarten (the Dutch side) has been active in tourism, tend to be more developed yet informal. The neighborhoods still have traces of ancient sugar cane plantations. Yet this island of two countries has a border that you can't even notice except where its marked with signs on the mainroad. People cross back and forth without realizing they are entering a new country - yet retaining its own cultural distinctiveness.
