Freeport/International Bazaar



It's a toss-up whether this district or Port Lucaya is the hottest spot in Freeport. Since they're several miles away from each other, it doesn't make much sense to go to both districts in one day—especially if you're taking a cab (since there is almost no public transportation in Freeport, cabs are usually the best option). While the Bazaar doesn't have a busy harbor to draw people, it has something that is for some even more tempting, a Las Vegas-style casino. Located at the Resort at Bahamia, this casino is 20,000 square feet in size, and has every kind of table game as well as over 400 slot machines. A production show is presented nightly in the Casino Showroom. The rest of this area's nightlife is scattered; the Resort at Bahamia boasts a few bars, while the club of the moment, Ruby Swiss Restaurant, is behind the Resort at Bahamia. During the daytime, the Bazaar is a great choice for shopping. It has nearly 100 specialty shops and restaurants, many of them purveying duty-free goods such as liquor, perfume and fine jewelry. Most people who shop in the Bahamas are looking to buy either souvenirs or duty-free merchandise. At places such as The Original Columbian, Colombian Emeralds, Parfum de Paris and Arcade Liquors, tourists can enjoy savings of up to 30 percent on domestic prices on luxury goods. When shopping begins to become tiresome, several restaurants and sidewalk cafes are nearby. Another seemingly minor but actually important feature of this area is the 24-hour ATM located in the Casino at Bahamia. It's the only one on the island that is accessible on weekends. While this may not seem important at first, at midnight on a Friday night, it becomes the deciding factor in many people's plans for the night.
