Shop until you drop: Greatest Outlet Mall in the Netherlands
Beside cheap Dutch quality products you find the largest international collection of outlet stores in the Netherlands in Bataviastad. This Outlet Mall is well known all over Holland because of the huge discounts: up to 70%. This Outlet Mall is in the city of Lelystad: 40 km from Amsterdam on the banks of the biggest lake of Holland: the IJsselmeer. I heard friends talk a lot about this collection of outlet stores. So recently I went there. I could not believe my eyes to see so many brands collected in a special outlet town. We did some serious shopping and came back home with Asics, Jeans and kitchen equipment.
