    Hey, my old flatmate and his twin are heading there for their 21st birthdays for 5 days (3 nights) with a few others, so I've just got a few questions as I'm also seriously low on money :P

    What is there to do aside from walk around, visit museums, smoke weed, and go to pubs? (I've never lived in a city, or visited one unless I was going to a gig or something, so I don't really know what else you'd do lol)
    I don't smoke but the others do, and I'm much more a fan of active holidays instead of visiting museums and admiring architecture and stuff, so it sounds like the main attractions won't be quite as interesting for me haha

    Also, as I can make expensive pints last a long time and won't be buying weed, how much per day do you think it'd cost (excluding the accommodation) if I did go? I did a week in the alps on 140 euros, I'm hoping it'll be less than that

    i went in december last year and am going again next week. here are some websites for you to have a look at to find activities if you arent into sightseeing:

    http://www.iamsterdam.com/

    http://www.timeout.com/amsterdam

    theres more on google so have a look around if you want to plan stuff to do in advance.

    it is more of a sight seeing, chilled city holiday as opposed to sunny places where you go jet skiing etc. but you can still enjoy yourself! it just depends what youre into, but think about the positives, you can smoke weed there in cafes which you cant do back home, so just try to enjoy it and the trip is only as fun as you make it!

    im taking about 300, but 100 is for my accommodation so 200 spending money (im not getting a hooker dont worry!)

    hope you have a good time
