Rotterdam is a ‘must visit’ city

Rotterdam is one of the ‘must visit’ cities of 2014, according to travel guide company Rough Guides.

Rotterdam might be best known for its ‘container-clogged port’ but, the company’s website says, new projects such as the De Rotterdam vertical city ‘herald a new dawn for the high-rise area locals have dubbed Manhattan on the Maas’.

Top of the Rough Guide list is Rio de Janeiro. Rotterdam, in eighth place, is sandwiched between Almaty in Kazakstan and Scottish city Glasgow.
