Amsterdam

Our scrapbook notes about Amsterdam

Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands and a very backpacker style city. The city has plenty to offer the average traveller. Many people are attracted to Amsterdam due to its sex industry and legalisation of marijuana, which obviously can encourage many a backpacker to stop off in the Western European destination. However, Amsterdam has a great deal more to offer than it's party appeal. Firstly, Amsterdam is a beautiful city full of great architecture and culture. It can be known as the Venice of the North with its many canals and boat trips. Also, the outskirts of Amsterdam offer great insights into Dutch culture and what a fantastic country this is. Visit if interested in partying, culture and history or simple just relaxing on the many canals.
