Giethoorn, The Netherlands

Giethoorn: the whole village is connected by a water canal system instead of actual roads - so pretty!!

Suzhou, China - gorgeous city with a terrific silk museum (and store!) and the beautiful Humble Administrator's Garden - one of the most famous gardens in China

THE TOWN WITH NO ROADS Giethoorn in Holland is a beautiful and quiet little village unique in that you will not find a single road in the entire town. Rather, it is connected by waterways and paths and some biking trails. Visitors are always welcomed and encouraged to rent an electric and noiseless "Whisper Boat" to explore this little piece of heaven on earth

Roads? Where We’re Going We Don’t Need Roads

Giethoorn, Netherlands. This idyllic village has no roads, and the only access is by water over the many beautiful canals or on foot over its wooden arch bridges. The locals use punters to get around and cars have to remain outside the village. Located in the province of Overijssel, there are 4 miles of canals and farmhouses with thatched roofs dating back to the 18th century.
