The Netherlands is by far one of Europes most gripping country. It has a rich history and I visited Amsterdam for a week. I can tell you that the city is not only pure charm and excitment, but it is also out of common and it's too unique unlike many other European cities.
The best way to explore the city is obviously on bike, which is a tradition in the Dutch culture. The place is exceptionally pleasing with it's architecture and canals. It's one of the worlds most tolerant cities. Although Amsterdam is always stereotyped because of it's Red Light District, it offers you so much more.
I definitely enjoyed experiencing the nightlife and biking around in the capital, and that's how every visitor should see Amsterdam,in fact the whole country, since it's very bike friendly with it's bicycle roads connecting every village,town and even big cities like The Hague and Rotterdam.
