North Holland Comments

When in Amsterdam, be respectful, have fun... u can sleep when yer dead!
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!
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!
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 live in Glasgow so I know a great city when I see one, and Amsterdam is great. Great hash and weed for great prices. Great museums and buildings, if you like that sort of thing. Red Light District is a must see. I thought all whores were ugly, but not in the Dam. Not as scary a place as everyone makes out. All in all a great city.
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.
