With the promise of gorgeous canals, 'coffee shops' and the crazy party scene, one steps into Netherlands and heads straight to Amsterdam. But what if I were to make you fall in love with a more charming and romantic version of Amsterdam: a smaller town, one with cuter canals, lesser tourists, jazz music and just an hour away from the main city?
During my recent trip to Amsterdam, my local cousin insisted I go to Delft and you know what they say about local recommendations - they are always the best! It was a rainy day spent walking along the Schie (Water stream in Netherlands) flowing through canals, flower-laden entrances, and admiring the famous Dutch painter Vermeer's hometown.
If you are looking for a leisurely stroll down memory lane with Instagrammable corners, friendly locals, little treasures then hop on that train and enjoy the ride.
