North Holland Comments

Great place! The coffeshops are amazing. For the older hippies try Dutch Flowers. I smoked with two seventy-year-old sailors and heard some great stories. (The hash and weed -- fantastic!). The Van Gogh museum and Rijks museum are must-sees. A ferry to the town of Markin will let you enjoy a small Dutch town that if you wander far enough, you can see the classic windmills. When you first dock you are spilled out into a very touristy part but keep exploring into the town and you will see farmland and windmills. The Dutch are very friendly open laid back. The U.S. could learn a lot from them. If you haven't been to Amsterdam, regardless of age, go!
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 is the best place in the world, if only others could follow the world would be a better place. Amsterdam has it sorted.
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.
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.
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!
