Visiting Amsterdam

2019-07-29T07:02:28+10:00

Amsterdam was okay but I preferred the calmer streets of Rotterdam. It was probably the crowds and crazy heat wave temperatures. I was also in a very lame hostel located 30 minutes away on the metro. I would rather re-visit here during a quiet season without all the tourists such as myself gawking around. Oh and it was reaching record temperatures up to 38°C!

Highlights:

Amsterdam Centraal, Heineken Experience, Canals, 'Red Light' District  An English ship surrendering to the Dutch This 'hostel' sucked. Far too crowded with Contiki groups and operated like commercial hotel + mega food court a normal afternoon attraction in Amsterdam
