Don’t #1. Don’t Call The Netherlands, Holland. Holland is actually only two of the twelve counties in The Netherlands.
Don’t #2. Don’t Think the Netherlands is Just Amsterdam. There are tons of other towns, cities and villages to visit. From the flowers in Keukenhof to the Beauty of Groningen.
Don’t #3. Don’t Be stupid with Drugs or Alcohol when you visit. The coffeeshops are world famous and you should never buy drugs off the street.
Don’t #4. Don’t just bite into hot food. The Dutch like their fried food hot as can be, so make sure you take a second to blow on it or else you might lose a few skin cells.
Don’t #5. Don’t Wander into the Bike Lanes in The Netherlands. Those bikes will get you.
Don’t #6, Don’t Take the Dutch Attitude Personally. The Dutch are very straightforward and will ask you anything. So don’t be upset, just know that is just how they are.
Don’t #7. Don’t Forget to Bring a chip card with a PIN number for purchasing from person-less kiosks & shops.
Don’t #8. Have coins with you so you can pick up a snack on the go.
Don’t #9. Don’t Be Surprised if you see all the Dutch Tourism Stereotypes when you visit. From wooden shoes to windmills to cheese to really tall people on bikes, you will see them.
Don’t #10. Don’t forget to buzz your train ticket card when you enter and exit the platforms/stations.
Don’t #11. Don’t Take pictures of the girls in the windows in the Red Light District.
Don’t #12. Don’t Take the Hop On Hop Off Bus in Amsterdam. The bus cannot go a lot of places in the historic center. You would be better off on the hop on hop off canal boat.
Don’t #13. Don’t think that Amsterdam is just the red light district. It is so much more with culture, food, art.
Don’t #14. Don’t forget to Bring a jacket. It will rain while you are there, even if it says sunny.
