I stayed in the city for 2 days with a mate. The canals really add to the beauty of the city and overall it is definitely one of the prettier in Europe. In the day, apart from exploring by bike, the rijksmuseum and Van Gogh are worth a visit but there isn't loads of culture of offer. What's more, the red light district was underwhelming and the mid-week nightlife was virtually non existent.
Insider Tip:Go on a weekend and don't take pictures in the red light district...you may get a surprise!
