Very modern, architecturally buzzing port with numerous cultural and tourist attractions. Excellent transport system and wide, uncongested streets.
A complete contrast to Amsterdam. which is easily accessible by train for a day trip. Don't miss the old SS Rotterdam, previous flagship oh Holland America Line, now a floating hotel. You can wander round most of the decks and grand 50's style public rooms and soak in the glamorous atmosphere. Staff here were lovely and eager to share their love of this great ship. It is easily reached by metro and bus.
It is big city (to my understanding, second big)of not too busy. It is not filled with tourist that hinder the view of city's beauty.
Nightlife is not the main prupose of visit but the city that can express well the culture and nature of Dutch.
Rotterdam is a modern city, with all modern, artistic architectures. Not very busy like other big cities, good for relax travelling.
There are many unique buildings in Rotterdam, must walk around the city to see different views of what the city can offer.
Alternatively, taking the tram to see the city is a good alternative too.
It is not too busy a place but not too quiet. We can enjoy day and night time activities. Good food, friendly people.
From Rotterdam, we can go to other cities very easy and fast.
