The fields of tulips that bloom in the Netherlands, from the end of March to the middle of May, provide a breath taking spectacle that is worth a trip to witness firsthand.
The sheer expanse of land that is blanketed in millions of tulip heads in every lurid shade imaginable is quite astounding. The perfect symmetry of the rows of flowers on the flat land also inspires awe.
Flying to Holland from the UK is relatively cheap and easy to do. It takes approximately an hour and a half to get to Amsterdam and travelling to other regions of the country is a simply a case of boarding a train at the airport.
