The beauty of Amsterdam
Submitted by Jocelyn Ng - National University of Singapore (NUS) | November 18, 2014
Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful European cities I have been too, with human scale buildings, intricate architecture, and a very vibrant culture. With this program, i managed to see the many sides to Amsterdam, as well as the Netherlands an ordinary tourist would not get to experience, and am very thankful for that. Class also gave me a better insight into the dutch culture, history, and planning visions, enabling me to appreciate the landscape and urban plans better. I really enjoyed my time in Amsterdam and the Netherlands!
