What To Do in Amsterdam
Few things to do
In Amsterdam there's some must-do's. Yes, the red light district, yes the Van Gogh museum, but also the Anne Frank house. It will definitely make a lasting impression.
Very close to the AFH is Nemo, a big science museum, shaped like a giant green boat.
To really feel the soul of Amsterdam, on a sunny day you should go to the Vondelpark, one of the, if not the biggest park in the Netherlands.
The best tip is to reach all these places by bike. Rent one (forget about helmets, biking is much safer here than anywhere in the world) and follow the signs.

The red light district is a must see, if for no other reason than to say you have seen it. But something the red light district vendors won’t tell you is that the ‘special’ desserts that the town is famous for are actually much more potent off the overly touristy block.
Renting bikes is also a must in Amsterdam, the city is set up in a spiral design and there is a very popular bike path that loops the city. Bikes can be rented almost anywhere and the very environment friendly locals will respect you more for joining.
The Van Gogh museum is also a must! Amsterdam has a lot of great museums, but the Van Gogh museum will not eat up your whole day and is a very memorable site.
