About six months ago I had no idea that ‘Kingsday’ existed… Now I want to go every year! It turns out that Kingsday in Amsterdam, Holland, is one of the funnest (and drunkest) holidays I’ve ever been on. There were street celebrations, concerts and boat parties everywhere! The locals cook amazing food in their houses then sell it to passer-bys on the street. There were fair rides in more then 3 locations and everyone seemed to be in a great mood (although that may because I was in the best mood ever).
My boyfriend and I booked our accommodation through airbnb and stayed in a really lovely apartment right near Centraal Station. We couldn’t of asked for a better location and a week seemed like a perfect time for us to stay. It was my fourth time in Amsterdam and I can safely say that Amsterdam is my favourite city in the world.
Apart from Kingsday, I love going to Amsterdam for the healthy way of life they lead, the wonderful crooked buildings and the grid of canals which are easy to navigate around. Everything that we had planned to go to (a great photography museum FOAM is a must see) was in walking distance and there’s always a bike rental shop nearby.
Overall, I think you should go to Amsterdam.
