The bus system in Almere is well developed and buses run frequently until midnight. It’s run by a private company called Connexxion under the name “Maxx Almere”. The (in)famous dutch strippenkaart is used on them too, so be aware of how many zones you are travelling through or ask the driver. There are special bus lanes all over the city so that...more

Spacious restaurant with outside terrace overlooking the harbour. Interior a bit dated but friendly and excellent service. The fish fritters (called Kibbeling) are excellent! Well fried, lightly seasoned with homemade remoulade, good salad and good fries.The fish soup by comparison was a bit of a disappointment. Too salty because of the smoked...more
Along the dike to Lemmer there are 50 windmills (Essent) of the windmill-park in the Nord-Oost Polder. The polderlands are very efficient to have these permanent energysources. Low land, sea is close and wind is almost 99% of the year guaranteed. All around Urk you see these enormous rotors on high poles turning around and making electricity for...more
Still many fishingboats are going out of the harbour to get a good catch. From the lighthouse one can see them leave towards the North and the North Sea. This is still the main drive of Urk, though tourism has also brought a welcome challenge with watersports and daytrip visitors.more

What is there to do on a lazy Saturday night. Watch a movie and that what we did. It went alright till the middle of the movie and the screen went all white and I was shocked that everyone remains calm and quietly took their coats and walk out. Apparently that was the intermissions and they do that here. If it was back in Malaysia people will...more
Batavia Stad and the Batavia Wharf in which the 17th century ship of the same name is anchored. Reconstruction work is being carried out on the "Batavia", an old sailing ship built in 1628 which once sailed to Australia. To the south of the town lies the wreck of "De Zeehond" (1878).more
Probably the best chinese restuarant in Almere. The cantonese menu is the best they have to offer besides the usual chinese food known by everybody.
Favorite Dish: Ti Pan meat/chicken/shrimp.
Baked on a hot iron plate with sauce, garlic and onion at your table.
Ofcourse you can always drive here by car. Plenty of parking space, with a small traincar wich will take you to the entrance.Another option is to take a bus from the trainstations Lelystad or Harderwijk (Both approx. 1/2 hour). Just look for the Six Flags Express.more

Look around sharply and find out little differences with the main land. The new polders are quite different from the old land and have there own tradition. A small example is what you find on top of the churchtowers. No, it's not the traditional rooster, but always something that has a connection with the sea. A boat, a fish or some legendary...more
The fact that this land only excists for a few decades now, makes everything rather new. Buildings do not have monumental status or look historical in any way. This is quite strange for many, including myself. Roads in the polders are made so that they for a chessboard within the frame of the outer polder lines. Towns are growing however steadily...more
