The Netherlands is a great country with so much to offer. Though the country is flat with hardly a hill in sight, it boasts beautiful landscapes adorned with windmills, canals, and tulip fields. Windmills and tulip fields are scattered everywhere and if you visit at the right time of year (April-May), you can witness the blooming of the tulips. The cities are spectacular and the Dutch do a great job in preserving the old buildings while constructing modern ones. Rotterdam is a great example of contemporary architecture at its finest. Amsterdam, with its 1,280 bridges connecting a maze of canals, is filled with great museums and street life. A boat ride on the canals is the best way to get a feel of Amsterdam. And if you get lost, feel free to ask a local for directions. They are more than willing to help!
