Amsterdam Travel Guide

Amsterdam seems to thrive on its funky mix and, despite hordes of tourists, still manages to feel quintessentially Dutch.

The city is one of the world's best hangouts, a canny blend of old and new: radical squatter art installations hang off 17th-century eaves; BMWs give way to bicycles; and triple-strength monk-made beer is drunk in gleaming, minimalist cafes.

The the cobbled streets, old crooked houses,the tree-lined canals and the generous parks all contribute to the atmosphere.
