Trip Type:
Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture

Age Range:
18-24

Customer Travel Tip: Go to the pub called "The Pint" in the Red Light District, I had the best night there with good music and reasonably priced drinks!

Liked: During the daytime, the people were lovely and the city is beautiful with plenty of places to visit such as the Anne Frank house and Van Gogh museum. Trams will take you everywhere you need to go so transport is great.

Disliked: Amsterdam nightlife was great but drinks were very expensive and there was a lot of sleazy, dodgy men who touched you up without consent or made vulgar comments so you just need to be careful especially if you are young.
