#tripaway During a 50-year project in the 17th century Amsterdam grew to four times its previous size, becoming the 3rd largest city in the world after London and Paris.
Central to that plan was the Canal Belt, a network of concentric canals that is now UNESCO listed.
Built on reclaimed land, Amsterdam is a feat of ingenuity, and still crackles with the ambition, cultural tolerance and enterprise that drove the 17th-century Golden Age when the Netherlands led the world in trade, maritime power, culture and economic might.
This is the city of Rembrandt, Anne Frank, the Red Light District, Johan Cruyff, and the Dutch East and West India Companies; there’s a world of fascinating stories, spellbinding art and architecture that has stood the test of time.
#tripaway I will always keep Amsterdam in my heart as one of the most charming cities I’ve ever been to! Amsterdam is colloquially known as Venice of the North because of its lovely canals that criss-cross the city, its impressive architecture and more than 1,500 bridges. There is something for every traveller's taste here; whether you prefer culture and history, serious partying, or just the relaxing charm of an old European city. #amsterdam #holland #netherlands #europe

Many canal houseboats docked on the canal. These houseboats are fixed vessels and are home to people. In the Netherlands, where the land is in the gold, the houseboat has become a fashion. There are 2,000 such houses in Amsterdam. Many houses have a history of 100 years or more. Many artists and musicians live in the houseboats to seek inspiration.
The houses on both sides of the canal were built in the middle of the 17th century. These centuries-old houses have witnessed the most glorious period in the Netherlands
Whether it is day or night, the canals of Amsterdam are always packed with Cruise ships and tourists from all over the world. In order to avoid the crowds and feel the original taste of the Amsterdam Canal, we climbed up early in the morning, taking the sun in the morning, starting from home, passing through the Jordanian district of the Old Town, and finally arriving at the Dam Palace in the seat of the Royal Palace in Amsterdam.
