According to the 2013 United Nations World Happiness Report of 2013, the Netherlands was ranked fourth happiest country in the world. The Netherlands has the thirteenth-highest per capita income in the world, according to the International Monetary Fund. Perhaps that's why it is such a happy country!

根据联合国2013年的世界幸福报告,荷兰是全球第四快乐的国家。而根据国际货币基金组织的统计,荷兰的人均GDP在全球排第13,可能这就是他们如此快乐的原因。

There are 1,281 bridges in Amsterdam! There are almost no streets in the Dutch village of Giethoorn, but there are many canals, which is why it's also known as the "Venice of the Netherlands".

There are more bikes (over 18 million) in the Netherlands than there are people. There are about 15,000 km of bike lanes in the Netherlands.

The Netherlands are famous for their tulips, but tulips originally didn't grow there. They were imported from the Ottoman empire in the 17th century. Today, the Netherlands is the biggest producer and exporter of tulips in the world. But not just tulips. 75% of the world's flower bulbs come from the Netherlands. The famous tulip garden Keukenhof is the largest flower garden in the world.
荷兰的郁金香非常出名,但郁金香其实并不是荷兰原产的。郁金香是他们在17世纪从奥斯曼土耳其帝国引进的。而现在,荷兰是全球最大的郁金香生产者和出口商。而且不只是郁金香,全球75%的花苞都是从荷兰来的。著名的库肯霍夫郁金香园是全球最大的花园。
