Netherlands

With terraced houses so distinct, you feel as if you are walking through a post-card. Dancing tulips on each corner and canals from tip to toe.

The Netherlands is a place where tradition and modernism coexist in an oxymoronic but beautifully functioning way of life. Cycles outnumber cars here, so it is the most efficient way to get around. A centre of high design and super sustainable ethos, the Netherlands has a deep, artistic heritage which is felt throughout the cobbled streets.

Although the Netherlands has world-famous lenient policies on mind-altering substances and, not to mention the ladies of the red light district, it is one of the safest countries in Europe with one of the lowest crime rates. Enjoy one of the epicentres of European nightlife, not just in Amsterdam, but in university cities like Utrecht and Rotterdam, which have their own unique take on social drinking.
