Dutch 'offer friendly welcome' for stag parties

Brits travelling to Holland for a stag weekend are likely to find the people there warm and welcoming, it has been suggested.

The Netherlands Board of Tourism & Conventions (NBTC) said that there is more to the nation than its culture, events and tourist attractions.

It suggested that the Dutch people respect others and offer a warm, laid-back and friendly atmosphere to visitors.

Around 1.75 million people from the UK and Ireland head to Holland each year, mostly travelling between spring and autumn, the latest NBTC figures show.

"[The Dutch] enjoy speaking to visitors from different countries and often speak several languages, making communication easier," a spokesperson for the organisation said.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands was recently found to be the most welcoming nation in Europe.

It scored almost twice the number of votes of Greece - its nearest rival in the OnePoll survey.

France was found to be the least friendly destination, while Germany was second last.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19461273-ADNFCR
