I have been very last minute with my planning again, so though would be leaving in a few days ( 6 days) i am still totally disorganized for the 1st leg of my trip.
My question is if i want to choose only one city in addition to Amsterdam ,where i would spend 3 days before my departure to Dubai which city should make my list?
I am looking for a charming place with lots of character , easy to access by train or bus directly from the airport , not too far away from Amsterdam ( not a 7 hours trip for example as will arrive from a 10 hours flight)where i can chill out and wander around and find nice things to keep me busy. I am a mature female solo traveller who loves nature , happy people art ....love to see windmills and tulips , relax and chill out and do one or 2 interesting activities eg: baloon tour in Bruges.
So far, have checked Bruges only. I am not a party person but love to people watch and have interesting conversations.
So any suggestions for the Absolute Must City besides Amsterdam which meets all the above ?
If ever, would i be able to take the train from the airport? should i buy the ticket when there or beforehand on the internet? can i make that city the base to do a one day trip ( Delft etc)...could it be a city with some warm weather and sunshine if ever?
I will be in amsterdam for 3 and a half days at the end of my Netherland layover anyway, and have planned to visit Kuekenhof, Van Gogh Museum, do a boat tour and canals , will stay in Jordaans so a stroll around there etc
So, for Amsterdam part, i think i am good to go just need to get some details in order but have a 4 days hole in my planning that needs to be to filled.
Please help me to complete this unorganised last miunte trip with your savy suggestions thanks a lot
