Trip Moments

Dam Square may be said to be the birth place of Amsterdam. The funerary casket behind the monument contains soil from the cemetery of martyrs of the Dutch East India Company. If the weather is good, grand assemblies are often held in the square, which are unusually bustling. In the spider web like small alleys, there are many bars and small shops, where the travelers of all countries can enjoy leisure time in a very satisfying way. Everyone says Amsterdam is a kingdom of bicycles, and this is definitely true, because there are bicycle parking lots everywhere. The sunlight scattered between these perfectly ordered bicycles, is another beautiful sight of this city.

A small fishing village in the late 12th century built here, then due to the development of trade, Amsterdam in the Dutch Golden Age leapt into the world's most important port. At that time, the city is the centre of finance and diamonds. 19th and 20th centuries, the city expanded and many new neighborhoods suburb of form. It is now the fourth largest airport in Europe (the top three are London, Paris, Frankfurt). Amsterdam has many tourist attractions, including the historic network of canals, the Dutch National Museum, the Van Gogh museum, the Anne Frank House, Red Light District and many marijuana cafes. Each year about 4.2 million tourists to visit the area. The Netherlands is the current most significant city. Amsterdam, after the development process from a fishing village to a metropolis, has experienced glory and destruction. The Great War of baptism, to some extent, her history is a microcosm of Dutch history.

Amsterdam is the capital of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The second-largest city and largest port. Due to the urban ground 1-5 meters below sea level, more than 160 waterways, more than 1,000 bridges crisscrossing the river forms the city of canals of Amsterdam, but also to the unique style of this city, has become a veritable Watertown. Canals surround Amsterdam, and water will be less. The old town of narrow roads, bicycle travel, is the first choice for people in town. The city provides with bike lanes, bike traffic lights, bike rental, clouds each corner of the city bike parking spots, even bicycles wharf. To truly experience local life, we also rented a bike ride in the streets of Watertown, feeling like chasing the wind. I hung 35 small fixed-focus lenses in the chest, took along the streets of Amsterdam's most beautiful scenery.ental, clouds each corner of the city bike parking spots, even bicycles wharf.
