Amsterdam 阿姆斯特丹 --The Venice of North北方威尼斯--

Amsterdam is a wonderful city in term of culture, language, courtesy and their warmth. I know about Amsterdam for the first time ...


Amsterdam is a wonderful city in term of culture, language, courtesy and their warmth. I know about Amsterdam for the first time was from a secondary novel called “Aku Anak Timur”.  The second time I knew this city more deeper was from the movie “The Fault in Our Stars”. I loved this city so much and wished that the time could stop at that moment. The friendly Dutch people can speak well in English and thus you no need to worry about the communication with the local people. When I step in this beautiful wonderland, the song sang by Ed Shereen had surrounded in my mind, and felt very excited and eager to explore this city. The first things you will be found was the Dutch people like to ride bicycle more than driving a car.
