The Netherlands - Rotterdam & South Holland (Chapter)
This is the Rotterdam & South Holland chapter from Lonely Planet's The Netherlands guidebook.
Think Holland and you're thinking of the region southwest of Amsterdam where tulips, cheese, Vermeer, tulips and plucky Dutch people standing up to the sea avoid cliché simply by their omnipresence. Further south, Zeeland (Sea Land) is the dyke-protected province that people often associate with the Netherlands when they're not thinking of tulips and windmills. Cycling in this flat, mostly sub-sea-level region is unparalleled.
- Appreciate the architecture and verve of Holland's second city, Rotterdam
