American, Canadian and Japanese holidaymakers are avoiding the Netherlands because of the expensive euro, the Netherlands Board of Tourism & Conventions reported. The number of visitors from the US fell by 3 percent last year. There were also 11% fewer Canadians and 15% less Japanese tourists. The decline in the number of visitors from North America and Japan was largely compensated by the increase of the number of visitors from countries like Belgium (up 11 percent), Spain (+10 percent), Finland (+10 percent), Russia (+14 percent), China (+14 percent) and India (+13 percent).
