First, Of course you have to apply for your Schengen visa (visa which is valid in several countries in Europe) advice from us, it is better to apply for visas at the embassy of Netherlands (rumors said it more easier) check the details here.
Netherlands is very beautiful, a lot of interesting places and a beautiful building here, we have relatives in the city of Delft. A city in the Netherlands (about 1 hour from Amsterdam station) which is not so big, but very beautiful. There a lot of beautiful building. We assure you, If you like taking picture, and interest in photography, here are so many places that you take a picture. In addition, the city is clean and people mostly ride a bicycle to go. Relax, you can also rent a bike there.
Despite the Netherlands, there are a lot of Indonesian restaurants open here, one that we encountered in the city of Delft is Jong Java. The restaurant is managed by Indonesian people. the eating system, you can select the package of rice, two vegetables, two side dishes or the other, and just select dishes what you want.

Beautiful scenery can be found along the way, the Netherlands is famous for the beautiful Canal, the river on the road and a lot of boats that pass.

We tasted cappuccino and strawberry cake, you can also get a free coupon cappuccino in your guide book.
One more well-known here, which is very famous apple pie from Kobush Kuch with whip cream is very tasty, tender. The texture of Apple pie was very creamy and tasty. Portions are big for just one slice we think enough for 1-2 persons. It costs about € 3. RECOMMENDED!
