Our first destination -Windmill near Kinderdijk ( “Children’s Dike”) village – after 1 hours & 30 minutes in the bus.

Kinderdijk is located at River Noord between Rotterdam & Dordrecht, which takes its name from an incident during the St. Elizabeth’s Day flood of 1421 after a child’s cradle had been stranded on the dike. The big draw these days are the fantastically preserved 18th-century windmills. Now, more than 1.000 old windmills still exist in the Netherlands.

From the windmill, we move to the next attraction  – Cheese Factory Volendam.

The place is so colourful, although you are not the cheese lover, but you will end up to buy something back due to the colorful attraction.
