Yes, okay, Amsterdam has legal marijuana and prostitution, but there’s so much more to the city that doesn’t seem to escape the Netherlands’ borders. For starters, Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Simply walking along its canal-lined streets and soaking up the city’s breathtaking architecture is a treat in and of itself. And that’s before you get to the incredible array of museums for which the city is known. Unfortunately, Amsterdam is also basically underwater already, so you might want to take in the sights before things get too, you know, drown-y. The dykes can only hold back so much H20.
