(businesspress24) - Travelling solo can be a great and exciting way to explore a new place. While many travelers are content with visiting highly-trafficked tourist sites, I find exploring off the beaten track to be much fun; spending a holiday finding the best local attractions and hideouts can be incredibly rewarding. There are plenty of European destinations to choose from for an incredible city break: Amsterdam is one of these and boasts many hidden gems to uncover. Let me share with you some great ways to see them for yourself.

A walking tour is also a great way for a solo traveler to explore famous sites and to meet others while doing so. The guides will show you landmarks like the Rembrandt Museum and the Anne Frank House, but they will also offer recommendations for the best cafes, bars, and restaurants that you should try to include on your city break. Amsterdam may just even be the perfect place to meet some fun people to make memories!

Tours usually start around the Salt Harbour, where there are breathtaking views of the IJ River. As you set out from the centre, youch the municipality regulates the level of water within its famed canals.

By Boat

Amsterdam is famous for its many canals, which intersect its centre, and a cruise is a great way to see it at its most picturesque. You can choose a day or night excursion, and there are plenty of options catering to all tastes: take your pick of a hop-on-hop-off canal bus, a romantic candlelit dinner cruise, or even a pizza and burger-themed cruise! With outings lasting from an hour to several, hopping on a boat is an excellent way to meet other travelers, strike up a conversation in a friendly atmosphere, and explore some of the best local waterside attractions.
