If you are not careful, your shoes end up getting mud! There are soft soil spots on the patches between the tulips and they look like they are dry but once you step on them, you end up getting in the mud! There are no wash area so be careful where you are stepping. Also, don't go between the patches because the farmers don't like that. They want that you just walk on designated areas. This prevents breaking the stems of the tulips!
Unique Suggestions: Just walk on designated areas only.
Fun Alternatives: Don't even try walking on the grassfields because it is watery there, too! Follow directions and stay on the path!
Walking or biking to the tulip fields is breathtaking! Really! But here it is, you want to hear? When you have children, make sure to bring them to the bathroom first before heading down to the tulips fields! There are porta potties (portable bathrooms) placed in the middle of the fields but sure is, there is a long line of people! Plus, it is not a pretty sight!
When nature calls, the kids will be crying and you are out and about in the middle of the tulip fields! It is hard to walk all the way close to the road where the potties are usually located.
Unique Suggestions: Make sure to exit on the last gasoline station or rest area before heading down to the tulips fields and potty! Tell the kids, go potty! Okay? Also, make sure to bring wipes for sanitation.
Fun Alternatives: If you have a strong bladder, it's okay to just control yourself. However, the kids can't. So, make sure that they potty first. If you have a strong stomach, then use the portable potties provided by the tulips farmers. Also make sure to bring wipes. Remember, there are many tourists using the potty. There is always a line of people waiting to go!
Since there is a lot of walking needed, make sure to bring comfortable shoes. And, since the festival is done only in the spring time, have a jacket handy just in case you get cold!
Bring sunglasses, bottled water, and don't forget your camera. Make sure that it has battery on it or it is fully charged!
