The best of Amsterdam

Amsterdam is undoubtedly one of Europe's most photogenic capitals, with its crooked townhouses, colourful storefronts and winding canals. Wander around the city and take in the historic buildings in Dam Square, or visit one of the many iconic museums, the Anne Frank House and Van Gogh Museum among them.

If you're looking for some unique souvenirs to bring home with you, head to the charming and quirky neighbourhood known as The 9 Streets, where you'll find vintage and designer shopping, cosy cafes and unique speciality stores.
