In recent weeks and days, Kenyans have been discussing a lot about going to The Hague or not. Me, I would love to go to The Hague! The Hague means enjoying castles, cultural events, concerts, art exhibits, a night out at the theatre, shopping in the city centre and a romantic walk at the seaside. The Hague is a wonderful city full of life, all year round!
Under the name ‘The Hague Art City’, The Hague in 2009 - 2011 will highlight its many cultural treasures. A large number of superb exhibitions, festivals and performances will be held during this period. Notably, some recently announced performances by 'cultural' Kenyans have not been included in the programme.
Shopping in The Hague is always fun. Besides all the major department stores and chains, you'll find countless specialist shops, fashion boutiques, porcelain shops, shoe shops, delicatessens, and many more shops specialising in fascinating exotic products. Something for everyone! Kenyans, let's all go to The Hague!
I wouldn't mind dining at Tampat Senang, a very colonial-style restaurant with waiters in traditional costumes. This Indonesian restaurant is beautifully decorated with indigenous art and has an excellent garden for outside dining in summer.
The Hague also means enjoying cultural events, concerts, art exhibits, and other nights out! I would love to go to Club Silly Symphonies aka Club Sillies (Uhuru and Ruto, please note the interesting name of this establishment), a bar cum night club catering for the partyfolk.
How about taking a stroll along the beach? Followed by a nice meal in one of the restaurants on the boulevard or at the beach. Or, if you feel like doing something a bit more active, a bracing walk or cycle tour in the dunes. Scheveningen and Kijkduin are the perfect places to go!
I would stay at the Haagsche Suites, luxurious exclusive suites in a townhouse built in 1890 and recently thoroughly refurbished. And you, would you like to go to The Hague? And if yes, what would you do there?
