Amsterdam is truly one of the most electric cities on earth. From beautiful canals, bright colored tulip fields, funky art and more bikes than people. What surprises me most is just how lovely the city is; with picturesque houses stacked side by side and fancy gables atop every building. Whether you’re into museums, food, or just want to feel immersed in the culture, Amsterdam is the perfect city to explore.
Take a picture at The “IAMSTERDAM”. Must shop and marvel in Dam Square. There are so many things to see and do near and around Dam Square- where the city was founded. From the city’s National Monument, the incredible Oude Kerk church (the oldest building in the city), lots of shopping, and even Madame Tussauds – you’re sure to find something you enjoy. There’s also Koninklijk Paleis– the Royal Palace where King Willem-Alexander and his family live.
Dutch food is great, but not as wide spread in the city as Indonesian. Make sure to try the waffles, stroopwaffel, croquettes, fries with mayonnaise, cheese, and pancakes. As Indonesian is very popular here, make sure to try the spicy rijsttafel, or ‘rice table’ which is an Indonesian banquet of small dishes that you share.
For Drinks - Heineken, of course! But gin is also very popular here and you can find many bars offering a wide selection of Dutch gin. There is lots of nightlife around the city in pubs and clubs in places like The Medieval center, Leidsplein, the Red Light District, and Rembrandtplein. Remember that a coffeeshop isn’t selling coffee. These are cannabis cafes and are sprinkled throughout the city.
