The first thing you notice...
Favorite thing: The first thing you notice about Amsterdam is the water. Water, water everywhere, as Coleridge put it. The canals that keep Amsterdam from being underwater serve as boulevards for the myriad of boats that glide their way across the softly-flowing water. Along the sides of the canals stand tall townhomes, constructed throughout the years by the merchant burghers who funded an empire.
See the canals, specially in...
Favorite thing: See the canals, specially in summer, walking in a very romantic city where everything is possible...but, watch out for pickpocketing! Act like you live in Amsterdam and nothing bad will happen. Amsterdam is relaxed and easy-going.
Fondest memory: When I am away I miss the easy live, the special humor of the people from Amsterdam and the feeling that you can do what you want. There are a lot of nice cafe's, restaurants and bars.
Favorite thing: Amsterdamhas somany lovely canals and at nights they look sowonderful,so picturesque...

sunnywong's General Tip
Fondest memory: One thing that gives Amsterdam something very special is the boathouses that boost all around in the canals (about 2,500!). This is normal boathouse in Amsterdam....and it even have a flower garden!
