A Canal Ride In Amsterdam| Explore The Netherlands

Amsterdam is probably the most beautiful city I have been in, and it is definitely, 100%, the cleanest city I have ever been in. Not even a cigarette butt on the ground. I am serious there were always people outside sweeping the sidewalk and cleaning the streets. 

The architecture  in Amsterdam is amazing, I love the tops of the houses. Land costs a lot there and so instead of building houses that expand over a large property, everything is built tall and narrow.  

A lot of the houses have hooks just below the roof because the staircases would be too narrow to bring  something like a piano up them, so they would have to bring it through a window.

I know everyone says there are a lot of bikes in Amsterdam (and the Netherlands) but I did not imagine how many until I saw this...

The best way to see the city is by a canal cruise. The canal cruises take you all through the city, from the oldest part of the city, to the red light district, past many bridges and houseboats. I think it is a really cool way of seeing the city and you can see everything from the canals.

I only wish I got to spend more time there, instead of just a few hours. Well I guess that means I have an excuse to go again. 

Have you been to Amsterdam? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Travels!
