My observations spending a couple of days I spent in The Hague in the beginning of September 2013
- If you want to talk to politicians, you have plenty of opportunities. From sit-ins while Parliament is in session, to Dudok, a very pleasant bistro about one 150 meters from the Binnenhof, and which is regularly the stage for political programs and debates.
- People are well-dressed. Those working at an embassy or ministry have to look elegantly, and do so.
- People are well-spoken, prepared, informal and good at English.
- Has a lot of nice coffee shops (not the ones for crack heads, but those where you can drink Coffee), and other monumental buildings
- Many expatiates per capita, employed at embassies, policy institutes, tribunals and elsewhere (like jazz pubs)
- Is diverse.
