"The Dutch generally exhibit..." Netherlands Local Custom Tip by PaulMagnuson

Netherlands Local Customs: 288 reviews and 290 photos

The Dutch generally exhibit the total opposite of Xenophobia -- they seem fascinated by people who are different. This is remarkable in comparison with most other continental European people in my (limited) experience. Don't be scared of talking to people, and commenting on what you find interesting. It generally sparks off a very friendly and stimulating chat.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
