It is old timish country with untouched nature and people live in harmony with each other. Everybody is usually very loving and kind, always willing to help.
In the past everyone knew english, but now it seems that the younger generation don’t bother to learn english and they have created their own kind of “modern” culture. I guess that makes Suriname even more intriguing! (mixing the old and the new)over 6 years ago
I have been to Paramaribo, the capital of Suriname. I was there for almost 6 months, and the environment resemble the 60’s era, where wooden house and old buildings is nice to look at. Forest are green as they can be, and surprisingly this little country was a multi-ecthnic group although the official language was Dutch. Somehow I do can pick up a few words around as some of my friends are chinese, Indian and Javanese. I learn the dutch language by the teaching from my friends where I ask them Hakka and malay, and they translate to me in dutch.over 6 years ago
You will never find a more beautiful country then Suriname… Learn the taal – Sranan Tongo, and speak it, because everyone will be very excited if a foreigner speaks their language.
The jungles are beautiful, the villages are amazing and the people are great!
I love it. I am staying!over 6 years ago
