Amsterdam

Any suggestion about best and worst to see and do?

Going 20th. So probably going to be cold and exchange rate £ / Euro will probably be rubbish.

Do - Numerous museums and galleries. Some of the museums have long queues such as the Van Gogh museum.

Do - Great parties and concerts - check out the Paradiso listings as an example.

Do - Canal tours

Possibly do - Coffee shops where you can have a space cake or a smoke. 

Avoid - the red light district which is full of intoxicated Brits on stag nights.

Thanks for the suggestions. Going this week. Got some museums booked. Don’t want to overdose though. Want time to chill out. 

As far as the red light is concerned it is probably more exciting at home.

Thanks.  Got back today after a 3 night stay.  Had a great time but now feel exhausted from all the walking and looking. What are those girls doing who sit the windows?  They must get quite cold as none of them were wearing their vests.

I can thoroughly recommend Welcome Pickups https://www.welcomepickups.com/amsterdam/ for transfers to and from your hotel to the airport. Fixed price and competitively priced with taxis that are usually metered so you are not quite sure what you will be charged. So much nicer having a meet and greet arrangement.  Anyone interested check out the Trip Adviser reviews.

Good to hear you had an enjoyable time. I will consider the Welcome Pick ups for my next trip there.

I am sure those Amsterdam girls are feeling much warmer than the ones in the UK that have to walk up and down wet pavements until they get a customer.
