Mark Malkoff's Best Of Holland (VIDEO)

It was shocking to me how many Americans think all there is to do in Holland is smoke pot in coffee shops.

As someone who has personally never smoked pot, I made it my mission to illustrate all the other amazing things the country has to offer in my video series, "101 Other Things to Do in Holland"

Here are my three favorite experiences

1. Food: Eating raw herring

2. Museum: Hanging up my own painting at the Van Gogh Museum

3. Bathing in the "I Am Amsterdam" reflecting pond
