Volendam is a small town near De IJsselmeer and is a very popular tourist destination with day trippers so you're bound to see bus loads of fellow travellers from all over the world.

Volendam was an old traditional Dutch fishing village and much of the attraction is to come and sample seafoods such as salted herring and smoked eel.

There are many restaurants to choose from or you can just buy a snack from a "Vishandel" (fish monger) near the harbour and eat it as you wander around soaking up the historic ambience.
