Wide selection of cheap hotels in
Amsterdam is the capital of Holland although neither the government nor
the Parliament are based there. These are both in Hague, the third
largest city in Holland.
Amsterdam is a city of bikes. You can rent one and do like the locals,
using the bike as a means of transport. It is easy, fast,
environmentally friendly and healthy – and an excellent way of
experiencing the city.
Amsterdam is famous for its red Light
District and so-called coffee shops where cannabis is sold legally. But
the city has plenty of other attractions to recommend it such as its
many museums including the Rijksmuseum, the Rembrandt Museum , the Van
Gogh Museum and Anne Frank's house.
The network of canals
that dominates Amsterdam today was constructed as a part of overall
urban planning starting as early as the 18th Century. The inner canals
frame the city centre and the outer served as a defence for the city and
a means to control the water level. A walk or a bike ride along one of
the cosy canal streets is the best way to experience the unique
atmosphere of the city.
In Amsterdam, you can eat at one of
the local cafés or find an international restaurant offering
anything from French over Italian to Asian cuisine.
