The Netherlands adds Taiwan to the latest list of countries with low COVID-19 risk starting June 24. Taiwanese people will not be required to present a negative COVID-19 test result and undergo quarantine upon arrival. Let’s add the Netherlands to our future list of traveling.

Giethoorn is approximately 2 hours by car from Amsterdam-- the capital of the Netherlands. This area is covered by canals and rivers with extended greenness, known as the “Green Venice of the North.” It is a popular scenic site in the Netherlands that casts away the uproar of the city and replaces it with the leisured atmosphere of a fairytale town.

Located in Giethoorn, De Lindenhof is a restaurant hotel run by Michelin star chef-- Martin Kruithof in Giethoorn. Let’s take a look at the photos of green sceneries taken by the family of photographer Chi-Hao Wei and Ruo-Jia Kung, the founder of the Yii Cultural Enterprise.
