‘Bonjour blanc, a journey through Haiti’ (Thomson, 2004) is considered by many writers and literary critics as the best travel writing about Haiti as it makes the readers want to go there, make them feel they had actually been there and most importantly give them a better understanding of the place, notably due to the fact Ian Thomson takes the readers into areas of Haiti that no other modern writer has bothered to explore. Under many different aspects Ian Thomson can be considered as a ‘virtual’ tour guide. When he went to Haiti in 1990, Ian Thomson hired professional tour guides. All the information included in his travel writing (history of Haiti, history of particular areas of the country, information about particular people, etc) are derived from explanation provided by professional tour guides and also by the locals who are in some extent ‘tour guides’. In a country like Haiti with such a rich and complicated history, having a tour guide is a ‘must’ in order to be able to decipher the codes required to understand the true nature of the destination, its people and interpretations of heritage.
