    Great article about Amsterdam! Have heard similar stories about Ice bars, but feeling same as you, have to try it once and so I feel like doing. However, I'm quite sure I will feel like it's waste of money as well.

    Amsterdam is a great city to visit and tour there amazing city. Better yet! the marijuana is legal over there so you could smoke as much weed as you like which is great. I would definitely come back to this place to stay.

    I'm reading your post at a perfect time. I'm in Amsterdam today and tomorrow and I will definitely use your article as a guide. What's one thing I cannot miss doing when there?

      We have been many times as we lived for a few years only a few hours across the border in Germany! I love the cheese make sure you eat the local Old Amsterdam Cheese, wander the city, see Anne Frank I think this is a not miss - make sure to buy tickets online. If you have a chance the diamond factory is also super cool and the Heineken factory tour is really fun!

    You must be really good in planning trips, what a talent. I wish I had some of those planning a trip skills. :) Netherlands is a very good travel destination, full of history and really friendly folks. Amsterdam gets so busy especially during the weekends, but who cares, the place is really majestic with all the canals, old houses and tulips in spring! :)

    Its almost 10 yrs ago when we visited Amsterdam. I still remember visiting Kuekenhof, Volendam and wandering around red light district with my friend.

    What an awesome itinerary! I love it when somebody breaks down a city like this and gives me a blueprint to follow. I wish they existed for all of the cities in China I visit! I love the mix of activities on here. The foodie and booze hound in me is especially pleased!

    Like you, I time everything down to the second, so I'm in love with your packed itinerary. I love the canal tours in Amsterdam but have never done a dinner tour--definitely on my list. And I'd never thought to try out one of the sex shows after touring the Red Light District--putting it on the list for my next visit!

    This is so detailed. Nice job. Pretty impressive you bought your husband the midnight sex show. What was the experience like for you? So much to do and explore in Amsterdam. One of my favorite European cities.

    Very nice, looks like you had fun in Amsterdam. But then who doesn't, it's a very traveler friendly (if crowded) city.

    First of all your pic of Amsterdam at night are amazing! I went once some 20 years ago but only had a day so I definitely want to go back to explore the canals and the city at night! Also that Ice Bar sounds awesome and coming from me who hates the cold that is a big deal! Eric || The Bucket List Project recently posted...The Bucket List Project’s 50th Blog Post!My Profile

    I would love to return to Amsterdam! I only got to spend 2 nights there like 10 years ago and that wasn't nearly enough time. I would love to check out a canal tour this time. I think we will probably skip the sex show though!

    I love Amsterdam, I been there several times, even cycled from London to the Dutch capital a few years ago just to go for a drink. This city has so much to offer. I love reading your post and tips for first time visitors. :) Danik recently posted...12 photos that will make you want to visit Lake Geneva NOW!My Profile

    Oh Amsterdam is such a cool city. Love the clogs! My favourite place there is the flower market followed by the buzzing bars

    Wow, there is really so much to do and see in Amsterdam! I love the apartment you stayed in - great views and right at the heart of things. Walking or cycling along the canals (or in your case, taking a canal tour) sounds like a wonderful way to spend your time and explore. And how lucky you were to happen on the tulip festival at Dam Square!

    We loved our time in Amsterdam, but I think it was quite different :-P We loved the museums, Vondelpark, the gorgeous zoo and even a boat trip through the canals. Melissa @ The Family Voyage recently posted...How to Choose the Best Women’s Travel BackpackMy Profile
