Canal-lined streets; a Dutch treat

Amsterdam is one of the world's best hangouts, a canny blend of old and new: radical squatter art installations hang off 17th-century eaves, BMWs give way to bicycles and triple-strength monk-made beer is served in steel and glass 'grand caf├ęs'.

The city seems to thrive on its funky mix and, despite its hordes of tourists, it still manages to feel quintessentially Dutch. The 17th- and 18th-century architecture, the fleets of bicycles, the tree-lined canals and scattered parks all contribute to the atmosphere.
