A glorious city at any time of year and an excellent place to break up your journey, whether it is onward to Africa or to other European destinations. With its canals, bicycle routes, flower markets and al fresco cafes and bars, it often feels more like a large village than a metropolis. Most people you meet are friendly, helpful and very laid back. Amsterdam is family friendly as there is plenty for them to see and do there as well. The Dutch have a term Gezelligheid which has no direct translation, but pretty much sums up the atmosphere there: convivial, welcoming and a general feeling of unity and belonging.
