    Very unique

    The city is very beautiful, all of this old building and facades, having all this water running through, and bikes everywhere ! Problem are mainly the overcrowding and all about the coffee-shop/sex tourist attractions.

    Insider Tip:Go to Van Gogh or RijksMuseum if you have time, it definitevely worth it.

    Stayokay in an awesome city

    Amsterdam was one of my favorite cities I visited my last trip. All the food was delicious. I loved all the cute little shops and cafes. The people were all so friendly and welcoming. Take a canal tour- it is worth it. You must see the city from the water :) Get lost on a little side street and take in the beautiful homes and bridges. Buy your tickets for the Van Gogh and Anne Frank Home ahead of time or you will be standing in a long line. Enjoy! :) Cheers!

    I AmSterdam

    Having never been before, I didn't know what to expect. The city has SO much to offer. Their way of life is so chill. They are so relaxed, but seem to be always busy. Also, a very strong sense of community, even though I found more foreigners working there than Dutch. But still, it's like they accept you straight away.

    I enjoyed the city. The weather in June was nice. Whether it's checking out the pretty parks, cafés or museums I think it's quite a good time. The city is quite walkable and public transportation is good. Just be careful with bike riders and their lanes.

    Worth the trip for a few days

    Great city to party in that's for sure. Although, after leaving the city, I felt like I was enclosed in a drunken-male-only town. The Netherlands have so much more to offer, don't just stay in Amsterdam! The Vondelpark is a must-see, and the Triposo app can be pretty handy for suggestions on where to go/what to do.
