What to buy: While in Amsterdam, don’t forget to stop by one of the many flower markets, the most famous one being the Bluemenmarkt. Buy yourself a bag of tulip bulbs, and in a few months you’ll have a beautiful reminder of your trip.
Holland is famous for its flowers and Amsterdam has a number of flower markets. The easiest to find, in the centre, is the floating market on the Singel canal, between Koningsplein and Vijzelstraat.

What to buy: There`s much more than just flowers here, with all kinds of souvenirs available as well. Holland seems to have the perfect weather for flowers, and in it`s in April that those tulip fields blossom, the ones we`re used to seeing in postcards.
.......Amsterdam!! Where else?
Seen here on the Flower Market, by the bucket load – unusual colours and very reasonably priced – they should be really – they grow millions per year!
