    That Central Railway Station is a starting point for many visitors I guess. I like the fact that it is so easy to get to the city from airport, since it there is quick and 'visitor friendly' rail connection.

    Train. Another shot of the Central station. Can you see the Sign of Seoul Restaurant in the left? I was so happy to see that sign since I haven't eat Korean food for several weeks after started backpacking trip to Europe. But I had to come back after seen the menulist outside of Seoul Restaurant. It was too expensive for backpackers to afford. -_-;
    Subway and Bicycle.

    If you come to Amsterdam by train, you surely will arrive in the Central Station. From here you are not so far from the City center.
    Central Station, it dates from 1889 and is built on three artificial islands and is carried by 8600 wooden piles. The big central hall is very impressive. The front of the building is decorated with views of the sea traffic, in order to honour the maritime past of the city.

    From outside the Central Station (train station) in Amsterdam looks really great. Old features are kept.

    Amsterdam Central Station is the best place to get off the train if you want to explore the city centre. The building was designed by an architect.

    This is Central Station (see pic below), where you can hop onto the metro or a tram to town or a train to Paris or Berlin. Needless to add, this area is forever ultra-BUSY...!
