"There is always SCHIPHOL when..." Netherlands Transportation Tip by eden_teuling

Netherlands Transportation: 243 reviews and 206 photos


There is always<font color = blue><b> SCHIPHOL </b></font color = blue> when you arrive by plane, from plane to train is a few hundred meters and you can reach <font color = blue><b>Amsterdam</b></font color = blue> our famous capital in no time at all. We are in easy reach for other <font color = blue><b>Europeans </b></font color = blue>by car and we do have famous harbours/seaports in case you prefer to come by boat. Coming from the UK you can use the <font color = blue><b>CHUNNEL</b></font color = blue> = Channel Tunnel, with car and all on the train, and your here in a<font color = blue><b> wiff</b></font color = blue>. Open to the whole dear world we are.
Our <font color = blue><b>motorways</b></font color = blue> are very good, you can reach ever place you want to go, no <font color = blue><b>hairpins </b></font color = blue>in this flat country, but quite some traffic lights and tail backs during <font color = blue><b>rush hours</b></font color = blue>: remember we are small and live here with almost 16.000.000 people; nothing is far off here, just can't be. <font color = blue><b>Public Transport </b></font color = blue>is perfect, trains, buses, undergrounds, taxis, bikes, boats, ferries. Ask for 'more days' or 'more persons' tickets everywhere you come. Each town has its own VVV = tourist inf. and, very important: <font color = blue><b>language</b></font color = blue> is no problem: every dutchmen knows his English and otherwise s/he will invent it <font color = blue><b>immediately</b></font color = blue> when you ask something and haven't we all hands and feet and all kinds of gestures to make ourselves clear??
