I have been thinking about moving to
. 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.
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.
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.
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
, regardless of age, go!
-- 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'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!
