Yes, there ARE clogs to be had here in Amsterdam, but it is far more than that, a very international city with everything from diamonds, fashion, sex and flowers.

Many people arrive in Amsterdam just for the Blomenmarkt (Market of Blooms) that runs along the canal. We enjoyed finding many species of plants there that surprised us because they are so rare in Israel.

Of course you may also take your time to just "wander" the canals..it is called wandering the streets in other places ^O^.

Pros and Cons

    Glad you had a good time in Amsterdam. Did you rent a bike yourself? I agree with what you said in your bike tip, cycling is indeed the best way to see the city.
