For years, the population has been fixated on working in the capital city of Port of Spain. Everything is located in around the 13 km² landmark. You could literally go to work in one building, pay your bills in the next, visit the bank down the street, stop for a bite to eat up Frederick Street, relax along Independence Square and lime with your colleagues on Ariapita Avenue after work.

With all these conveniences, why on earth would you ever want to move anywhere else, especially to Central Trinidad? In fact, here are 10 reasons we think you should continue working in Port of Spain.

 

1. The traffic is horrendous and lasts for hours heading there…
