Netherlands: Bus Tours
Bustling liberal cities, Windmills, flowers, fish, cafés, cheese - and tall people
There are many opportunities for bus travel in the Netherlands and you will not be short of opportunities to visit the many wonderful things to see in the country, whether it's the bulb fields in spring time, the Valkenburg Christmas Market, or even a bus tour of Amsterdam. You will find regular bus services in the Netherlands easy to use and cheap too. Buses tend to be used for local journeys, and those within regions and provinces, as trains are the preferred mode of transport for long distance travel. In Dutch towns, bus stations and bus stops are usually next to station, making for easy transfers from one mode of transport to another. In the Netherlands there is a national fare system that covers buses, trains and trams throughout the country. All you have to do is to buy a Strippenkaart (strip card) and each hour you spend travelling uses up one strip on your card. You can buy Strippenkaarten with different numbers of strips on them, depending on how much you want to travel.
