What should I prepare for King's Day (Koningsdag)?

1 Answer(s)

Charlotte Zhu: It's on 27 April.

What I love most about King's Day is the free flea market around the whole city & orange dress code. It is literally a huge party in the Netherlands.

It usually lasts from 6.00 till 21.00.
I would suggest:
1. dress something in orange - glasses, hat, t-shirt... or you can buy them from HEMA.
2. get some cash for the open market as people gonna sell "anything" they want on the streets.
3. bring some drinks as it's true energy consuming!
4. make sure your phone has enough battery to take photos or videos.

Where are nice places for a staycation in the Netherlands

1 Answer(s)

Charlotte Zhu: I highly recommend Zwolle!

I was there two days ago. It’s a city but with a town-relaxing vibe. There’s a river around the city town. The town is both historical and clean, well organized. You’ll find beautiful architecture and nice stores.

In a word, it’s truly a great destination for short or long stay. And easy to get around by car or train.

Which crystal stores do you recommend to visit in Amsterdam?

1 Answer(s)

Charlotte Zhu: I recommend Fabula Rosa, which is next to the Westmarket.

It is a unique shop and sells beautiful stones, spiritual books, and cards.

It is such a spiritual store, and the only thing is that the price usually higher than the average.
