Customer Travel Tip: If you want to go out partying. It's best to joint a pub crawl because the group takes up most of the club and its simply just fun

Disliked: That its known for red light.

Customer Travel Tip: try to stay in a flat/studio/canal boat rather than a hotel. go to the market on saturday, buy flowers, sit by a canal.

Liked: relaxed cosy atmosphere, quirky houses, canals of course! local market, apple cake:)

Disliked: we were not particularly lucky with food but i guess it is just the matter of knowing where to go. my friend said coffee was bad in all places. cyclists are aggressive..

Customer Travel Tip: If your a girl i'd say go in a bigger group probably with other guys because its a bit intimidating cause its so male-orientated. But thats only really around the red light district, in the other areas its fine :) friendly people and everyone speaks english!

Liked: The people there have a great attitude and it really is a very chilled out place. Coffee shops were awesome obviously but theres a lot more to amsterdam, the free tour was really good at highlighting that. It was a great place to finish off my travelling!

Disliked: It was hard to get to know your way around as there are lots of "centres" rather than one. A lot of large groups of guys which was annoying after a while as we were 2 girls travelling and they were in our face a lot. .
