Day 6 - Rotterdam (Kinderdijk), Dordrecht

Rotterdam is thoroughly modern - you'll soon understand why it's sometimes called "Manhattan on the Meuse": The Maas Tower, the Montevideo, the Millennium Tower and the spectacular Erasmus Bridge make for a dazzling skyline. Begin your day by exploring this modern city on a Dutch culinary stroll, with a stop at the architectural milestone, Market Hall. Erected in 2014, it's known for its futuristic look and unique culinary offerings.
