There is no doubt that European countries rank very high when it comes to world tourism. Most tourists from all over the world
prefer to visit European countries than any other place because they find some of the best locations, landscapes and
accommodation here in Europe and among the top few cities in the world that has really become popular for global tourism is
Amsterdam. The city of Amsterdam has always been recognized as one of the most important cities in Europe not because of its
exquisite location and weather but because it has a lot of historical importance and has played a major role in the
development of Europe.
The city derives its name from a popular river called Amster and is the sixth largest metropolitan place in entire Europe. If you
consider the global tourism in Amsterdam than the city ranks seventh on the list because nearly four million visitors visit
Amsterdam annually and the numbers are only growing with the passage of time. Today, Amsterdam earns a decent tourism income
through which the government of Amsterdam is trying to make the city a better place for world tourism and even for people who
are the citizens of Netherlands.
If you are planning to travel Amsterdam, than you can find endless numbers of hotels and accommodations in the city. It is
a better idea that you book your rooms in advance so that you do not have any problems when you land in Amsterdam. However, even
if you have not planned your holidays you will always find hotels and accommodations available in Amsterdam. Since
Amsterdam ranks very high on world tourism scale most of the people earn their livelihood by entertaining or providing
services to international visitors and therefore a better option is to open up accommodation services.
Transport is never a problem in Amsterdam so you should never worry about how you will get from one place to another, but if
you want to go checkout some places in Amsterdam than it would be recommended that you go for renting a bicycle rather than
taking a bus or renting a car. More than 50 percent of the people in Amsterdam prefer to travel through bicycle rather than
taking a bus or renting a private car. On the other hand, you should also know that there are many large and small bridges in
Amsterdam which is why cycles are a better way to move from one place to another rather than taking public transport vehicle.
Amsterdam is a very different city from a regular urban metropolis because though it is one of the largest metropolitan
centers you will find a lot of peace and serenity around. If you are on a trip with your partner than you should not miss out
places like Canal Ring and Beginjhof which are really quiet and cuts off the traffic commotion making you feel relaxed. You can
enjoy some of the best European cuisines and delicacies at the street restaurants which serve food and drinks till late night.
