Amsterdam is famous for The Red Light District, wild nightlife and coffee shops serving up more than just lattes (ya’ know what we’re saying?) - but there’s much more to the city than sex, drugs and rock’n’roll parties.
You can admire the cute canalside houses, or enjoy a picnic in Vondelpark next to a Picasso. Art is pretty much everywhere, and we don’t just mean the Van Goghs and Rembrandts hanging in galleries. In the uber-cool NDSM district, you’ll find unique street art, pop-up events and music.
Amsterdammers are a diverse bunch, meaning you can sample dishes from all over the world. From heavenly cheese to sweet, gooey stroopwafels, to Asian street food, there’s something for everyone - even your gluten-free, vegan pal.
The locals favour eco-friendly modes of transport: boating, biking, walking or the tram. As a tourist, just make sure you know the rules of the road!
