Netherlands Tourist Traps: 76 reviews and 53 photos


There are more bikes than Dutchies. And the canals are filled with them as well. In Amsterdam your bike insurance will be more expensive than your bike as one's bike gets stolen often.
Why? It is the best way to get oneself from one place to another.
There are special bike lanes along the roads and traffic lights.
A familiar sight is mothers bringing their children to school on their bikes. So rain clothes are als a necessary item. After bringing the kids to school, the women will go shopping, using the bike as a trolley for numerous shopping bags.

Unique Suggestions: Lock your bike!

Fun Alternatives: Don't only lock your bike. Keep it behind lock and key! Someone will steal off the useful parts leaving you with the frame locked to a tree or wherever you left it.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
