The Netherlands

Although officially called Kingdom of the Netherlands, most folks simply refer to this country as Holland. North Holland and South Holland are actually provinces within the country, and The Netherlands' Antilles and Aruba in the Caribbean are also Dutch territories. Here, in this populous land, you can eat delectable cheeses and delicious sweets, like stroop waffles and Oliebollen, take in the quaint charm of tulips surrounding windmills, add to your collection of delftware, and view the diamonds of Antwerp's world-renowned diamond industry. And while Dutch is the national language, English-speaking travelers will have no difficulty getting around.
