There are some photo studios where we can pay - about 12.5 euro for one of 10R picture - to take a picture dressing in the traditional clothing of Netherlands. We can also take some pictures of Windmolen and many traditional things in there.

The Bloemenmarkt is the world's only floating flower market. Founded in 1862, it is sited in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on Singel between Muntplein and Koningsplein in the city's southern canal belt. It includes 15 florists and garden shops as well as a range of souvenir gifts.

Not far from the Bloemenmarkt, there is Canal Cruise to explore Amsterdam from the canal.
The other place I like to visit is Gassan Diamonds Factory.

The Gassan Diamond Factory is a very interesting place for diamond lovers to visit. You can learn about the crafts of jewellery making and diamond cutting, watch as diamonds are cut and polished, and see how a rough diamond is turned into a dazzling and brilliant jewel. Visitors will also learn how diamonds are valued, and what a flawless diamond should look like. If you have a diamond that you would like to have mounted on a piece of jewellery, the goldsmiths will do it for you while you wait.
