On the other hand, you may also visit Binnenhof & Ridderzaal and the Peace Palace.
Depending on what you want to see and explore, you may visit the other famous cities too - Rotterdam which features some fantastic architecture and Delft which is famous for the Dutch universities. Kinderdijk is also a pretty place known for its wind mills though it is similar to Zaans Schaans.
Netherlands is quite expensive than the other parts of Europe. This especially includes the travel and hence choose the options wisely and keep researching for some offers online. Hotels are costly and you can save by choosing B&B's for your stay. On an average you spend a minimum of INR 2500 per head/per day on travel and food. Beer is no exception to this even if Netherlands has many in-house breweries.
If you opt for an Airbnb apartment, you can cook one of the meals yourself. This definitely contributes to some travel fund saving.
Depending on your travel guidebook, different options are available. Bus and trams are best within Amsterdam. By all means, nothing is cheap here.
For intra-city travel, better way is to opt for travel pass options available which can save you a few bucks. We purchased the most economical 12 hour pass we could, to travel within and nearby Amsterdam. These are available right outside the Central train station.
Keep a note about the timings. To some places like Giethoorn, there are limited options available and if you miss these, you will have to alter or cancel your plans causing disappointment.
We had purchased the EURAIL BENELUX (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemberg) pass category as we also visited Bruges (Belgium) during our stay in Netherlands. This definitely helps if you miss any particular train as they are valid throughout that day of travel and you need not spend on buying individual tickets. EURAIL passes also have some special combo offers and you might want to check these out on https://www.eurail.com.
I found that there are varied food options available in Netherlands.
Bitterballen is a dutch meat based snack which is absolutely mouth watering. I had never tried beef, but this one was delicious.
More than any local varieties, we came across burgers, Turkish donors, Chinese rice and noodles, hot dogs and of course croissants!
