    tourist friendly place

    everyone speaks english, so its easy to ask your directions, the train from airport is quite fast, about 25mins you will reach, routes are pretty straightforward, just go straight you will see it. Friendly people, nice buildings and environment.

    Insider Tip:buy the metro pass if you're gonna travel for few days, at town, buy your airport train tickets with coins, it will be cheaper than credit card.

    The city of surprizes

    Amsterdam is known for the smoking stuff, so naturally as non-smoker I was skeptical. But the people there are friendly, you can walk around all day, discover the cute houses and quiet neighborhoods and when you get lost, you just ask. The red light district was fun!

    Insider Tip:Take a sandwich and beer and sit at the canal at the red light district to watch the crowd... for free and very entertaining!

    it's a great city if you ignore the weed and the red light district. i'd recommend going to nemo, the amsterdam dungeon, artis or some of the really good musea amsterdam has to offer.
