Based on my previous post, the next place I visited was Amsterdam and boy was it an eye-opener for me. The stunning view, vibrant nightlife. Here is a list of a couple of things to do and places to visit at Amsterdam.
2. Heineken Experience
Tickets can be bought either online or at the counter. Once you've reached, you will get to see an adorable vintage looking Heineken carriage with barrels and bike.
We were also taught how to drink the beer - for the beginners haha.
Pictures and videos can be taken to ensure we had a memorable fun-filled trip.3. Keukenhof Gardens
The best time to head to Amsterdam would be during spring where the flowers are all blooming in their fine glory. The whole place looks so serene and dream-like, way better than Alice in Wonderland to me.
We were greeted by two pretty Dutch ladies with their full on attire. As you can see from the way the rest of us were dressed, the weather was still quite chilly during early Spring.
4. Red Light District
Just imagine an ordinary street that looks like this. Picture taken from here where an intensive and well written post was written for the top 10 things to do in Amsterdam.
Just imagine this plain old street during the day come alive with red lights and plastic-doll-like prostitutes dressed in near to nothing wink at you out of the glass window. Other than that, sex shops selling all sorts of kinky stuff are available and sex museum with an oh-my-huge-penis. Those who are willing to fork out can watch sex shows, should be way better than hentai right guys?
Besides that, it was the first the where cannabis was sold cakes, biscuits, chewing gum and other forms. You could smell weed at practically every corner of the place. Magic truffles and other hallucinating items were sold.
5. Zaanse Schans
This village basically shows the Dutch culture in depth. Think WINDMILLS, CHEESE and CLOGS.
Rainbow coloured variation of chalk.
After all the climb and stroll around, we went to grab a simple cheese in a bun plus hot chocoloate to keep ourselves warm. Boy was it the best tasting cheese ever.
After filling ourselves with food, we continued on to view brightly painted clogs and the tools that were used. You could even buy a pair as a souvenir.
Well, other than that.. other places that are worth a visit are
6. The Anne Frank Huis which is basically a museum showing the room that Anne and her family hid in from the Nazis during World War II. Cameras are not allowed hence no pictures. You get to imagine and relive the moments as Anne Frank during that period and it's worth every penny paid.
When you're there, don't forget to try their fish Smørrebrød or open sandwich.
I can finally conclude that Amsterdam was definitely one of the places which I don't mind visiting again.
