Take a trip on the St. Kitts Scenic Railway

The St. Kitts Tourism Authority has launched an hour-long slow video of the country’s iconic Scenic Railway, to help Brits to de-stress while on their commute to work.

The idea came following consumer research by the tourism authority that revealed Brits waste on average 202 minutes a week waiting in queues, being subject to train delays, waiting for public transport or walking behind slow people.

More than one third said they get frustrated trying to get to the office quickly, and everyone around them is slowing them down.

To help Brits understand the St. Kitts way of kicking back and relaxing, often described as Limin’, the tourism authority has shared an hour-long slow video of the country’s Scenic Railway.

They hope that the relaxing footage – showing the island’s historic sugar cane plantations, unspoilt coast lines and famous Mount Liamuiga, alongside the calming sounds of native animals – will help Brits escape to the island through the power of video.

Racquel Brown, chief executive of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority, said: “To help Brits overcome the daily stresses and strains of commuting to work, we have launched a mesmerising slow video of our iconic Scenic Railway, the last railway in the West Indies.

“Those watching can sink into tantalising views of both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, see the sumptuous green scenery roll past and hear the relaxing sounds of the native birdlife on the island.”
