I had been to amsterdam only twice but I do have a wonderful experience there. 1st of all is the atmosphere whereby the people are more friendly than I even thought they would!!! That really do surprise my conscience though. I can certainly say that the city or country even, it the 1 & only place where racism is the very minimum, almost next to nothing really. For those of you who yet to visit amsterdam or holland, please do make a note of this.
As for the food, perhaps those who love spicy 1's can fing numerous Indonesian restaurant with great affordable prices & a whole range of delicatessen everywhere. From hot dogs to posh restaurants are needless to mention.
Accomodation is pretty good, ranging from the cheapest hostle to grand hotels are availble to all & clean bathrooms can be found anywhere. Weather wise is good, compared to other parts of Europe.
Flowers is a must-to-see attraction over there, esp. at Easter. Other tourist attraction like Museum of Van Gogh, windmills, Vollendam, Madiurodam, etc are woth seeing. Not menttioning the red-light district, Zedek.
Those of you that may fear the language spoken there is truly not a big deal. They, in general do speak, Dutch (obviously), English, German & French, so no need to worry & 1 can get along well in no time!!!
