The Bloemenmarkt is a must for visitors to Amsterdam, with an array of florists selling bulbs and flowers along the bank of the canal, but mostly on barges anchored along the waterway. It offers a spectacular display of colors and fragrances whatever the season, and the expert florists are happy to offer advice in many different languages. For a very reasonable price, you can buy plants and flowers, such as large bunches of multi-colored tulips, but the most popular purchases – because they’re easy to carry – are bags of tulip, daffodil and iris bulbs. Although Amsterdam is famous for its tulips, these flowers actually originated in Turkey.
