That's why I put Netherlands in 3rd place in my list about "countries-must-be-visited", after South Korea, and Singapore.
Another reason about why I want to travelling to Netherlands is that the Netherlands have special history connection with my country, Indonesia.
How about you? Would you like to go to Netherlands?

The constitution refers to the monarch of the Kingdom of the Netherlands as "The King", though the monarch may be a king as well as a queen.
The Kingdom of the Netherlands has been an independent monarchy since 16 March 1815, but has been hereditarily "governed" by members of the House of Orange-Nassau since 1559, when Philip II of Spain appointed William of Orange as stadtholder. William became the leader of the Dutch Revolt and the independent Dutch Republic. As stadtholder, he was followed by several of his descendants, and during the 18th century, the function of stadtholder developed into a hereditary head of state of the thus "crowned" Dutch Republic. The last stadtholder, William V, was succeeded by his son, William I, who became the first king.
