A website which will serve as a guide to the capital of Dominica, Roseau, has been launched.

The site, Roseaucityguide.com, is an initiative of Bradt Travel Guides author, Paul Crask, and will outline everything from where to eat and drink, what to see and do, to where to stay.

The content of the new site is taken from Crask’s Roseau chapther of his Bradt Dominica Travel Guide (second edition), which has been popular among stay-over visitors to the island.

Crask said the new website is mobile and ready and is primarily aimed at days visitors, helping them maximise ther short time in and enjoyment of the nation’s capital.

Paul hopes this website proves an interesting and useful resource for both visitors and Dominicans engaged in the tourism sector. He sees it evolving, improving and becoming more interactive over time.

Paul Crask is a dual national of the UK and Dominica and has been living on the island for nine years. He is a writer and freelance editor and is also the author of the Bradt Travel Guide to Grenada, Carriacou & Petite Martinique.

    The first picture, with Roseau in the foreground the Tourist ship berthed alongside the waterfront and the beautiful assure blue Caribbean sea in the background is absolutely breathtaking.
    Great job.

    I love the idea. I would like for when you select for example food and drink that instead of just seeing the addresses you can either see a map also with the locations or when you do some action that the map pops up with the location. It is not difficult to add the code and data.

    Still I LOVE THE IDEA

    Great idea! Helps promote the city. I suggest two pages on the website on the Past and The Future of Roseau should be inserted, The Past will show photos of Roseau in the past while the Future will tell visitors to the website the plans that are a foot to improve the city such as the Roseau River Promenade, the rehabilitation of the roads and sidewalks and parking and possibly show impressions of the improved city.

      If you are taking a tour of a foreign place, are you really intersted about the plans for the future of that place you may never visit again?

      What people want to see are structures that exist today and a brief history of the structure – not future plans.
