Amsterdam, the Netherlands

On the way back home from Madrid to Singapore for the festive season recently, we squeezed in a brief stop-over at Amsterdam, making it the last city that we’d visit for this year.

With its intriguing concentric network of canals encircling the city, Amsterdam is sometimes referred to as the Venice of the North and its canal ring area was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List just last year.

Having only a full day to spare, we were all over the place from the city center to the countryside, checking out everything from cheeses to clogs, canals to “coffee shops”, Christmas lights to the red light district. All that, plus surviving the death trap of a staircase at our hotel!

Here’re some of my favourite photos…
