‘Amsterdam, the16th best travel destination in the world!’

Amsterdam is in 16th place on the list of travel destinations in the world by the US magazine US News & World Report, known for its consumer surveys. The Great Barrier Reef in Australia is the number 1. Paris stands in the rankings at number 2, followed by the tropical island of Bora Bora (French Polynesia). The editors analyzed 250 destinations, which were taken both the opinions of experts and tourists.

Amsterdam is particularly praised for its versatility. “Do not believe everything you hear about Amsterdam,” says the magazine, referring to the sex and drugs image of the capital. “Amsterdam attracts many young men, but is also ideal for a romantic getaway or a sound educational tour with the kids.”

Apart from the 16th place in the general list, Amsterdam is also put at four in the list of best spring destinations. “From cycling along the canals to the Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam fulfills many different travel preferences,” said US News editors.
