    I guess it depends what you're going for hehe.

    I mean you can do the whole sitting in a cafe smoking cannabis and then go to the red light district thing. Alternatively, there are really decent museums in Amsterdam, quite a few sightseeing opportunities and various restaurants.

    Of course, you could combine all of this

    We just walked around for ages. My advice is that if you are going during the week, (as we did) is that you start off early, since it all closes up early at about 2 in the morning.

    We just walked around the red light district really, went into a few bars. It isn't the most welcoming city in the world, and don't talk to anyone who talks to you on the street!!

    You can walk on the parts of the pavements reserved for bikes and get shouted at by all the Dutch cyclists for being non-Dutch, and a tourist.

    I went in July with friends and had a fantastic time. It's so beautiful. Definitely try and get to any museums as early on as possible. The coach-loads of tourists seemed to arrive around half-ten/eleven. In the evenings, we walked around the city because it's gorgeous. I actually found the locals really welcoming (aside from the cyclists :-S) - not in a strange way!

    Here's something I've posted before in another thread on exactly this topic

    (Original post by blissy)
    We spent ten days in Amsterdam the first time we went and I've been back since! There is absolutely loads to do aside from drugs and sex shows!
    Here is some of the stuff we did:

    - Van Gogh Museum
    - Rijksmuseum
    - Troppenmuseum
    - Hortus Botanicus
    - Artis Zoo
    - Kattenkabin
    - Tushinski Theatre
    - Cannabis College & linked things!
    - Red Light District
    - Flower Market
    - Flower parade
    - Diamond Factory
    - Jewish History Museum
    - Anne Frank's House
    - Parks and Memorials
    - Lovely restaurants and cafes (not coffeeshops necessarily!)
    - Madam Tussauds

    And there are hundreds of amazing shops; ones that sell only toothbrushes, shops full of produce from other parts of the world, some very very cool design shops, wooden toy shops, art shops, markets etc. etc!

    The city is beautiful and so nice to walk around - Herenstraat was lovely, Museumplein is nice too! You just need to get on a tram or sneltran, plan your trip

    or walk around and try to work out if the thing in the window is a man, woman or gorilla.
