Amsterdam Traveling Guide

Posted on 28 December 2017 by admin (0)

If you’re going to Amsterdam, this guide will help you see some of the sites that are lesser known to most tourists but promise to provide an incredible experience. We will also include some of the more known “touristy” things to do that we thought were well worth while. We hope you enjoy this article and it helps you navigate the beautiful places Amsterdam has to offer.

First off, this city has many beautiful botanical gardens that many visitors are unaware of. We checked all of them out and we thought every single one of them was well worth visiting because of the different types of beautiful flowers and plants they each had to offer. Some of the gardens can actually be seen from some of the canal tours, but we’ll get to that a little later. Regardless of where you are in Amsterdam, there will most likely be a botanical garden within walking distance of your hotel and we highly recommend you take some time to check them out.

The Red Light District is one of the most infamous places in the city and most people have heard about it because of the erotic women standing in the windows that are selling their bodies. The energy, mystique, and great bars make this place incredibly fun to hang out and explore. Be careful when you’re patrolling the District because it’s a big tourist spot and many locals will try to pick-pocket you, especially at night time.

The canal tours are one of the best ways to see the entire city while relaxing and enjoying the waterways. There are tons of options for the canal tours and they seem to be all priced about the same so you can take your pick on which one you want to do. It is worthwhile to ask for opinions and try to get the best and most entertaining captain as possible while on your tour.

The last thing we’ll discuss in this article is the Van Van Gogh Museum. This was one of my favorite experiences during our stay here because of the story behind this incredible artist. He had many beautiful pieces of art and as many of you may know, his work was never discovered or appreciated until after he passed away. If you want to have an amazingly unique experience at this museum, I recommend stopping by one of the truffle shops and buying the mildest form of truffle they have available and consuming it about 30 minutes prior before walking into the museum. This is guaranteed to take your experience to an entirely new level.
