I am born Dutch and have lived in
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!
I live in Glasgow so I know a great city when I see one, and
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.
-- 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.
It is really easy to get lost in
, 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.
The best thing about
(that isn't inhaled) are all the cheap falafel places. Look for one with a bar that lets you add your own toppings.
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.
