The Commonwealth of Dominica has gone virtual with great alacrity, and is inviting prospective travelers and friends to look at their enhanced web presence. They have posted a number of vodcasts ( a series of mini-documentary videos) produced by the Dominican Tourism Authority which are now available to download on iTunes.
The videos focus on highlighted aspects of the island including:
• Responsible Tourism – Information on how Dominica preserves its unique character and how tourism contributes to local communities
• Carib Culture – An insight into the Caribbean’s last indigenous Carib Indian population which resides in Dominica
• Hiking – An overview of the island’s trail network including details of the Waitukubuli National Trail which is due to open in 2011
• Creole cookery – Preparing a traditional Dominican dish using local ingredients
Other videos available provide an overview of the island’s history, activities plus cultural highlights such as local music.
This is just the latest way the Discover Dominica Authority is using social media platforms to promote the island: travelers can find out further information and ask questions on the Dominica Facebook fan page and through the island’s Twitter stream. Those interested are also encouraged to upload their own Dominica videos onto the dedicated Discover Dominica You Tube channel.
