The place was dirty, lots of people, vendors, food and very hot. If you love crowds this is the place to be, if not then don't visit here.

Independence Square is a place most travel through on a daily basis, the streets are dirty and littered with street merchants which ironically is an illegal act, yet the police pass by and even patronized these person. Much more should be done to actually make this area a tourist attraction.

The atmosphere is very noisy with loud music carts ,dirty bars and people quarrelling .Most of the food stalls are unsanitary looking.The are many taxi stands and people hustling items for sale.

De square is a like the center of Port of Spain. You must end up there. Around that square you can see different buildings and stalls. Example KFC, Church's Chicken, DVD Store, Bank etc. It is a extremely busy place with real transport etc.
