Amsterdam: Photo Inspiration And Things To Do 

I Amsterdam |
Heading to Amsterdam?

During my round the world trip I spent about five days in Amsterdam. I was planning to visit and stay in a hostel but reconnected with my friend Mattijs who I met while traveling in Bali. He was kind enough to host me during my stay and lucky me, he lived right in the heart of Amsterdam on Keizersgracht.

Here are some Amsterdam photos highlights:

And of courseI did! I lucked out and got a solo!

Things I did and places I visited and recommend for Amsterdam:

  • Vondelpark – a must visit city park near Museumplein
  • Dam Square – the city’s central square
  • Free walking tour with Sandemans
  • Canal Tour -just walk up to the canal and you can join one easily. Under 10 Euros
  • Red Light District – not everyone’s cup of tea but I had to take a peep (ha sorry)
  • Albert Cuyp Market – I didn’t buy anything but tried out the street food
  • Anne Frank House – I recommend making a reservation for a ticket and visit time
  • Van Gogh Museum – I went on a Friday night and there was a DJ!!!
  • Coffee Shop – they say when in Rome! I went to Homegrown Fantasy, a favorite of Willie Nelson and B. Real from Cypress Hill
  • Nine Streets to shop/window shop
  • Rijksmuseum in Museumplein
  • IAMsterdam sign!

    I think it’s nice leaving a reason/excuse to go back to places… even if you didn’t intend so in the beginning… sounds like you deff have one ;)

    • Yes I definitely do!! Amsterdam is an amazing city of history, architecture and art. And not to mention my good travel buddy Mattijs! I’ll go back in a heartbeat!
