A Guide to Holland

For travellers, Holland offers a unique and rewarding blend of sophisticated culture, welcoming hospitality and down-to-earth charm - just as one might expect of the land of Rembrandt and Vermeer.

Food and Drink

The Dutch have a style of cooking that reflects their landscape: plenty of dairy products from the cows that graze the pastures of the polders; meat of all kinds from the many farms that dot the countryside; fish and shellfish from coast and coastal inlets; and eels from the inland waterways and lakes. Beer is the traditional alcoholic drink, although wine - imported from all over the world - is almost as popular.

A Guide to Cyprus

An eastern outpost of Europe at the gates of Asia, at the crossroads of the ancient world, Cyprus is crammed with vestiges of some 10,000 years of history. But to Cyprus's many visitors, it's the sun and the beaches and the high-octane nightlife that are the main lures to 'the island of Aphrodite'.
