Did you ever want to see the famous cherry blossoms in Japan? And each year you realise that flying to the land of the rising sun is a bit beyond your budget and would put too much stress on your available holidays. Well, this year you are in luck because Expat Club has a great solution for you. This special blossom trip leads us to Holland’s fruit garden De Betuwe (or Batavia in English). This scenic flat piece of land lies between the big rivers the Waal and the Lower Rhine and is known for its many orchards. We’ll be making a lovely bus trip over winding dike roads and through numerous blossoming apple, pear and cherry trees.
This time of year the blossoms are just spectacular, so you’re in for a big flowery treat! We start our trip in the picturesque town Woudrichem, then have a nice buffet lunch in Holland’s most famous hotel chain, walk around an old castle with many apple trees, look over the big Waal river from a dike with windmill, drive through many orchards, visit the Dutch Royal village Buren, drive over the famous Apple Dike with trees on both sides and finish the day in Holland’s glassblowing town in the middle of the Betuwe.
