    One of the best cities because it is very unique. There are lots of activities to do here and walking around is the best way to move through the city and see it at the same time.

    Insider Tip:Eat lots of stroopwaffles and visit the Van Gogh musuem. Also eat Indonesian food and check out the awesome magazine and book shops.

    Go to AMS as soon as you can, its a beautiful city with so much to offer. There is always something to see or somewhere to go. I highly recommend it to anyone, just make sure you bring enough Euro. Get some pancakes, sit on a canal, go to Vondelpark, go for a bike ride, people watch, see Van Gogh, see a concert or music festival... Amsterdam is the place to be.

    Amsterdam on a budget

    I went with little money to Amsterdam, I could not have asked for a better time anywhere else, Go to the supermarket for your drinks and sweets or whatever you may need, ask what offers there are, you will be surprised whats available.

    Insider Tip:Bring your weed back to where your staying, it works out much cheaper, the bus from the airport is way cheaper than the train.

    I love amsterdam

    Everything is legal at Amsterdam - the Vegas of Europe. Check out the red light district, smoke weed at the coffee shops and drink .. and eat of Wok the Walk. I really enjoyed my stay in Amsterdam and will go back for sure. The weather wasnt too good for me but i made the best of it.

    Insider Tip:Buy beer from the supermarket to save money. Buy the 2 day bus pass that you can use for an unlimited time. Also, get out of Red light district and see the real Amsterdam. Also, if you are tired of your typical museums, check out the Volrik Museum which is a hidden gem. They have real humans preserved in this museum with deformities. MUST SEE!
