! What's not to love? Me and my best friend traveled for a month around Europe and Amsterdamwas one of our favorite places! First, go to the INTERNET CAFE or the BULLDOG next to BOOM CHICAGO if you stay at VONDELPARK. You can drink and smoke and play some pool. The music is off the hook and if you decide to shroom...there are incredible pictures coming right out of the wall!!! You also HAVE to get the cone fries!! They are soooo good! Nothing like em'. For sure you have to go to MULIN ROUGE or a live sex show! You have to totally experience the life! You should also bring some cash to buy the best weed in the world! About 13 euro well get you high! Bikes are everywhere...so travel that way or do what the locals do...foot it. Oh, and mind the fashion there. You can get some cute fashion ideas, or don'ts! Oh, and there are not too many R&B type clubs. But, the music is a great mix. You hear the sh*t that you don't hear in the States. Oh, and go to the coffee…
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!
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.
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.
I'm totally overwhelmed by
-- 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!
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!
