Cheap flights from the Netherlands Antilles

Netherlands Antilles is no longer known as a separate and autonomous country. As of October 2010, the country is labelled as a public body or a special municipality, which is fully integrated in the Netherlands. The name is being kept to describe the various islands in the Caribbean that were formerly colonized by the Dutch empire and remained as a constituent part of the Netherlands although with different currencies and visa regimens. Netherlands sits between Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and France in the Caribbean. A home to over 16 million people, Netherlands is a densely populated country with one of the most interesting capital cities in the world, Amsterdam. The country is rich with cultural heritage, liberal mentality, and a great contrast of century-old traditions and modern-day living. The country is a constitutional monarchy and is administratively divided into 12 provinces with four regions that differ in culture and language.

Where to go

Being one of the most interesting European countries, the Netherlands is packed with cities that offer diverse points of interest. Amsterdam offers impressive and meticulous architecture, while Arnhem provides a collection of old quarters and mansions. The historic town of Delft is as famous for its blue and white ceramics as the rich nightlife of Groningen. The Hague is a city of great importance to the country. This is the judicial capital of the world, as well as the centre of government and home to the royal family. Leiden is home to three national museums, while Maastricht gives off a medieval vibe with its southern culture, style, and architecture. Nijmegen is the oldest city in the country. Rotterdam is home to modern architecture, vibrant nightlife and art scene, while Utrecht mirrors historic centres and antique stores. In addition to this, Texel is the largest island outside of the major cities that you can visit, especially when travelling with kids. The island is best suited for bonding activities such as cycling, walking, swimming, and riding horses.

A little short of three hours, you can fly to St. Petersburg in Russia aboard KLM Royal Dutch Airlines from Schiphol Airport. The city is also a nest of rich culture and history, ornamented with old buildings and infrastructure, with a heavy tint of modern day living. Landing at Pulkovo Airport, getting to the city can be done via city buses and taxis, and getting around the city is efficiently served by its vast public transport system. Some of the most favourite tourist destination in the St. Petersburg is its historic centre, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit The Hermitage Museum, also known as The Winter Palace, which is the city’s premier attraction. The museum takes care of the vast collections of Rembrandt, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Rubens among other great and world-renowned artists. Churches, cathedrals, and monasteries are built in fine architecture that are, by looks alone, as interesting as the history that comes with them. Also, visit the Vasilievsky Island and take great pleasure in experiencing the unique treats and attractions the island has in store for you.

At half past 6 hours, you will find yourself in the sandy paradise of Dubai, one of the seven that comprises the United Arab Emirates. Dubai is the most modern, progressive, and seemingly independent of the seven emirates. A desert city with magnificent infrastructure, Dubai offers luxury, nightlife, and modern-day living unlike any other cities in the Middle East. The city has two faces: Old and New. Both are equally rich and equally interesting. The Old Dubai is home to the city’s first school, the Al Ahmadiya School; the Bastakiya District with rows of homes that have been reconstructed in the traditional style, museums and mosques; and souks where you can see and buy merchandises from spices to crafts and down to cheap souvenir shirts. The Modern Dubai, on the other hand, is luxurious and showcases a collection of shopping malls and theme parks. See the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building to date, with 160 floors and standing at 828 meters above ground. Palm Islands is also an extravagant and highly elegant place to visit in Dubai. It is the largest man-made island that adds an upscale beachfront property in the area.
