<b><font color=blue>The Flower Market</b></font>
This is what Holland is famous for - horticulture. This market shows you why. You can find anything here from tulips to palm trees to cannabis seeds! All of the 'stalls' are actually floating on the canal, take a look from a bridge either end. Even if you don't buy anything, it is a wonderful place to go just to look at the colourful and strange plants on offer. If you want some flowers but know they won't last the journey home, why not buy some of the bulbs on offer and plant them when you get back home? Tulips flower year after year - a great souvenier! Watch out for the Christmas shop in a building opposite the market. It is open 365 days a year and sells Christmas decorations. Only in Amsterdam!
