Question by : Is thalys efficient or should we just take plane going to paris?
if its advisable to take plane, is there any budget airline that we can take? coz i heard reviews that thalys would normally go on strike…

Thalys takes a little over 3 hours from Amsterdam which I gather is your starting point. When you consider the time it takes getting to/from airports arriving early for check-in, security and getting to the gate before boarding time and waiting for baggage, a flight would take you longer. Non stop flights take 1 hr 15 min, but if you want cheap fares, you’re going to need to make a connection somewhere.
France does have transportation strikes from time to time, but I wouldn’t call it a normal condition. right now, the German train system seems to be close to a strike.
