an afternoon outing for dutch sightseeing in Keukenhof and Zaanse Schans .
"its 100% dutch! so dutch, that most of the dutch people won't go there" said my dutch colleague.
basically Keukenhof is a park that have millions of tulips and other bulb flowers. an overwhelming display of colour in a beautiful setting covering an area of 32 hectares that incorporates elements of traditional and modern landscape gardening.
not really my type of spot, tapi sedap la mata memandang :)
mat bunga :)
while Zaanse Schans in the other hands, reflects its 17th and 18th century roots with painted wooden houses, windmills and warehouses along the Zaan river.
