North Holland Comments

It is really easy to get lost in Amsterdam, so bring a good map. Do not get the Amsterdam pass unless you either plan on going to a lot of museums. Most of the museum and attractions are a short walk from the center canal or Red Light District. Try renting a bike. It is the best way to get around town.
Word of warning in and around Amsterdam, be aware of the many vagrants, drug dealers etc. that hang around mainly the Red Light district and the main drag in from the railway station (Damrak) if they approach you or bump into you just walk away as they may accuse you of banging into them and making them drop their drugs, which you will be asked to pay for in a polite way, well, polite for a drug dealer anyway.
I'm totally overwhelmed by Amsterdam -- the city, people who live there, and the tourists. Everything is great -- they're tolerant and there's no crime. In Amsterdam I felt safe like nowhere else in the world! Amsterdam has everything -- culture, history, museums, all kinds of restaurants, nightlife, and coffee shops; the Red Light District was a mind opener. I think that the rest of the world and all the big cities could look up to this city. And there is a special thing that I like -- the buildings in the city center area are built on three or four floors, so you don't feel small in the big city, and all the big buildings and business/shopping centers are outside this historic and touristic area. I'm looking forward to traveling there again soon, but this time maybe for a month! I just love Amsterdam!
Amsterdam was really great! The Dutch are very friendly and laid back. We met people from all over the world and everyone had a good time. The place is really beautiful and historic. Also the red light area was an eye opener -- so open and the windowgirls seems to be very friendly. The U.S.A. can learn a lot from Holland. I love the city!
Amsterdam is the town to visit. What is good about it? To begin with: everything! Coffe shops, museums, restaurants, and of course the red light district. If you have to travel once in a lifetime, visit Amsterdam.
I have been thinking about moving to Amsterdam. I have never been there but I figure you only live once. The whole city stands for everything I have based my life on -- sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll.
