Probably the image most associated with the city of Amsterdam is that of elegant gabled mansions richly decorated and beautifully laid out, facing water canals lined with trees. The crescent-shaped rings of man made waterways, Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Prinsengracht, called the Grachtengordel in Dutch, were built around the old heart of town during the 17th century's Dutch Golden Age. The Canal House is directly on the the only floating flower market in the world so it's one of the sweetest smelling places of Amsterdam. The flower stalls stand on houseboats and whatever your favorite flower, you are bound to find it here. Also it is just off the Reguliers dwarsstraat, which has excellent restaurants and lively bars nearby which attracts a mixed bunch of both hip straights and gays. Rembrandtplein is around the corner as well as the famous Art Deco Tuschinski theater. It is easy to find many means of public transport, specially trams, there are also buses and taxis, but then again, you are in a privilege position to access the endless display of hot spots around town. Art museums, theater and architecture are all part of the Amsterdam scene and simply walking through the colorful neighborhoods offers an exceptional cultural experience.
