I have read through all the articles, FAQs, and many other postings on the topic of OV Chipkaart and other options, but remain totally confused!
We will be staying in Amsterdam for about ten days, and I expect that we will get around the city by walking most of the time.
However, we plan to do separate day trips to each of the following: Den Hague, Delft, Haarlem, Keukenhof, and possibly to Hoge de Veluew National Park (Otterlo). I expect that we will be using the trains for most of these side trips.
So what is the easiest/cheapest way to do this: buy each train ticket as we need it, OV Chipkaart, or other?
