  Grote Markt Plein/Den Haag (the Hague)
by jcsuperstar

Favorite thing: This square is where I go everyday to drink coffee, eat brunch, read the newspapers and generally shoot the breeze with acquaintances and friends. There are squares like this in Amsterdam but because they're well known it's loaded with tourists. This tends to make some locations a bit seedy but because Den Haag (the Hague) isn't such a touristy place, it stays a place where local artists and bohemians like to come and meet up. There are 5 bars, 1 club and 4 restuarants so there's enough choice for the traveller that wants to meet up with the local crowd. If you get there, just ask someone behind the bar (you might have to ask a few different bar workers) if Dutch/Canadian photographer by the name of Jan is around and then maybe we could meet up and I could give a few tips. Enjoy your stay. cheers, Jan
