A city of flow, a city of canals; Amsterdam is the archetype of the big city utopia. It is the cleanest city in the world, as its roads bear almost no traffic other than cycles, humans, and trams. Amsterdam instead breathes using the beautiful canals that interlace, and circumscribe it. It inspires by administering mixture of opulent history with a rich diversity of people and cultures. Amsterdam could hold you there for a lifetime, but a short visit can be very rewarding as there is much to see and do. Ogle the picturesque windmills, the many historical sights, the over fifty museums, and of course the no-tongue in cheek red-light district. Indulge in varieties of great cafes and restaurants, Rastafarian coffee shops, rich nightlife, and efficient public transport. And the best way to explore all of this is on the back of a trusty hired bicycle.
