We came for Tulipmania, of course. We miss the Netherlands so much that we take every opportunity to find something of the Netherlands. No, this is not that bad (would be if we miss it so much by now already already), but we were very curious about this spectacle. You can order tickets online and this saves you $2 per ticket than when you buy it at the box office. We paid $20 per ticket, which is equivalent to €13. You can buy a ticket for both biomes, i.e. the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. You can also choose to visit one of the two biomes. While writing this blog, I only find out that you could have bought a ticket for one of the biomes. We arrived at half past seven in the evening so we only had 1.5 hours to visit both Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. So we had to go through the two greenhouses in a hurry.
‘Oliebollen’ and ‘bitterballen’
In Flower Dome you can visit Tulipmania until the end of May. If you’re still wondering if foreigners see our country as a place where tulips, cows, clogs, windmills and bicycles can be found, then the answer is yes. A lot of tulip bulbs hadn’t come out yet, we had expected a bit more of this in advance. On the website it was mentioned that they were selling ‘oliebollen’ and ‘bitterballen’. We were looking forward to this the most, but unfortunately we didn’t find it.
