This is a pretty canal around old Amsterdam. This is the shortest concentric canal and it is beautifully lit up at night (just like the other canals).

The Singel is gem-filled if you're willing to explore the numerous quality cafes and coffeeshops- many of them don't look touristy at all! I kept returning to the Singel to check out many of the eateries along the canal - try to dine alfresco as the experience is incredible

P.S. Of great interest to many people would be the Flower Market which is at the southernmost point of the Singel canal (check out a map). Nearby are also famous cheese shops that allow free sampling.

The Singel is the outermost of the old canals of the city. It is wide and on one bank one can find the Flower Market.
