Oh Amsterdam, you’re beautiful! Probably the best time to visit Amsterdam is Springtime. When London City Airport asked me to share a few of my favourite travel tips for Amsterdam for the #NoFilter Amsterdam campaign I knew immediately that I wanted to show the amazing architecture, canals and of course flowers.

The challenge of the #NoFilter campaign is to share photos without the use of any filters. Light is key when it comes to photography so the best is to choose a sunny day. I prefer a day with sun and clouds, than just something magic happens. When you visit Amsterdam take the time to look up and discover the beautiful architecture. One of my favourite buildings is the the old ‘tram remise’ De Hallen, a place where you can find a huge food market, movie theater, restaurants, shops and a hotel. The location is perfect to discover the city and a great place to stop for a drink and just wander around.

You can’t skip the ‘Vondelpark’ the park in the middle of the city where you can spot locals and tourists enjoying the sun. At Spring time you see many amazing flowers in the park but of course you can spot more flowers at the famous ‘Flower market’ or just stop at one of the many flowers shops.

At Hello Frankie you can find more tips for nice places, restaurants, shops and design in Amsterdam, just look around. I always like to search for nice places before I visit a new place, read blogs, local websites and of course you can take a look at blogs such as the Urban Travel Blog by Duncan Rhodes, a travel journalist.
