North Holland Comments

Amsterdam is great. Whether you're looking to enjoy the night-life, drugs, or sightsee, there is something for everyone. The area around Central Station is super touristy. Spend a day in that area and then move on. Go to the Pijp and shop at the Albert Cuyp Market, spend a day in Vondelpark, or go to the Jordaan and hang with locals in the coffee shops. Eat at a place called Abe Vento at 2 Plantage Kerklaan, they have great cheap Italian food. Also try the cheap falafels in Rembrantplein (Maoz was my personal favourite). There is also a soup place called Soup En Zo at the Waterlooplein that has amazing soup.
This small city is really really beautiful! Enjoy walking through the old streets and take a sit in the Grote Market, the central square of Haarlem -- full of life during the day and with some pubs and street musicians at night. It's peaceful, but not boring!
Amsterdam is a wicked city for a nice smoke lots to see and lots of places to visit, but be warned, drug addicts are not the friendly type and avoid the areas where they are, especially in the area near the church.
The best thing about Amsterdam (that isn't inhaled) are all the cheap falafel places. Look for one with a bar that lets you add your own toppings.
Wow, Amsterdam -- the rumours are true! What an amazing place to stay, so laid back and relaxed. The Red Light District is not nearly as scary as people to say. At the very least, just go there for a look, you'll be amazed by how differently people live here, and the Red Light District pretty much sums that up. Give the Sex Museum a tour as well. It might sound creepy but parts of it were hilarious! But be careful, while it might seem like anything goes in Amsterdam, some things will definitely get you into trouble -- taking pictures in the Red Light District, for example.
I am born Dutch and have lived in Amsterdam for more than twenty-five years. To all those worried about drug dealers on the streets -- do not worry, ignore the poor suckers who are basically selling only cheap sh*t to ignorant people who don´t know how to say "no thank you." Please understand as well that the people selling drugs on the streets are really just poor addicts who should not be taken seriously. They will never be aggressive, by the way. Why should we put them in prison? They just look for the sucker who wants to make their day by buying their washpowder or henna powder for five hundred times its value. Real suckers will get high from this anyhow! Enjoy Amsterdam, and do not think that everybody smokes all this stuff. Most Amsterdammers do not use drugs. You can have a great time without it as well!
