Downtown Willemstad is divided into two parts: Punda and Otrabanda. These are large outdoor shopping areas where you can stroll while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the natural harbor St. Annabaai. Crossing the Queen Emma pontoon bridge you can see the many historical buildings of De Handelskade, where you can clearly see the Dutch influence. Punda has fashion and many jewelry stores and Otrabanda has market-like stands with affordable souvenirs.  You could see a ship entering or leaving the harbor, passing below the 180ft (60meters) high bridge named Queen Juliana.
