Our tips for Hatta Safari

  • Keep in mind that cell phone signals can be spotty in the Al-Hajar Mountains.Make sure you have a first aid kit on hand and try packing a GPS.
  • Hatta can actually get a little chilly during the winter nights.Consider bringing a light jacket along with you during your Hatta trip!
  • Although Hatta is home to one of the few examples of surface water in the U.A.E., we wouldn’t recommend drinking it.Bring plenty of your own H2O.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit the Amsterdam museums is April through May.  You’ll have the chance to avoid the massive crowds of tourist crowds that fly in during the summer and enjoy the best weather of the year in Amsterdam.  The months of September through November also feature smaller crowds.  But, you’ll find that the weather can change in an instant in the fall.  Winter is understandably cold; but, the upside is that you can usually find cheap airfare and accomodations.  Irrespective of season, the best time of the day to explore the Van Gogh Museum or Rijksmuseum is in the early morning.  The wait in the queues is shorter and the galleries aren’t packed like they are around noon.  For those who don’t consider themselves morning persons, consider showing up after 3:00 p.m., when many visitors have already gone home.  But, don’t forget that most museums halt all admissions at least 30 minutes before closing time. 

Getting there

Getting to the Rijksmuseum or Van Gogh Museum is pretty easy.  If you’d like to use Amsterdam’s famed tram system, the closest stops to the Van Gogh Museum are Van Baerlestraat and Museumplein, while Rijksmuseum has its own, dedicated stop.  You should have little difficulty pulling off a perfect Amsterdam museum tour by using Tram Nos. 2, 5, or 12.  Then again, riding a bicycle is one of the most popular modes of transportation in Amsterdam and represents one of the finer ways to do your Amsterdam sightseeing.  And, if you find yourself driving around Amsterdam, then you should considering using the paid Q-Park parking structure below Museumplein on Van Baerlestraat.  But, perhaps the best way to get around Amsterdam is with an iAmsterdam City Card.  It provides unlimited use of the city’s entire public transit system for the duration of the validity of the card, not to mention free admission at the very museums you plan on visiting.
