If by now you’ve seen the museums, scoured the markets, sailed through the canals and explored the cosy Jordaan district, you’re in for a treat. ‘Cause there’s more to discover in Amsterdam than just the city centre. Lots more! In just a half hour, you could be cycling through the wide green pastures of the Dutch countryside – just like a scene in a Rembrandt painting. Holland’s expansive white sandy beaches are also within easy reach of the city. Why not shop till you drop at outlet heaven Batavia Stad, or wrap yourself in luxury at Schiphol Airport. Or visit the elegant city of Haarlem – it’s an art lover’s jewel. Variety is the spice of life in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area, and that’s what sets this area apart. Thanks to an extensive public transport network, it’s easy to get anywhere in just 45 minutes. Just decide where you’d like to explore, and each day of your holiday is sure to be a day to remember.
