About Amsterdam

Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands, its largest city and financial, creative and cultural capital. Known as the ‘Venice of the North’ owing to the elaborate canal system spread throughout the city, it is also known for its artistic heritage, architectural marvels of the city’s 17th century Golden Age, narrow houses, and over 1,500 bridges. It is one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe, attracting over 7 million tourists annually. It is also known to cater to a variety of tastes, as it gives one a glimpse of culture and history, a vibrant nightlife, relaxation and rejuvenation as well as the laid back charm of a European city. The main mode of maneuvering through the city is by a bicycle, as the numerous biking paths make it easier. It is home to the famous Van Gogh Museum. The Canal Belt area had been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010.

Things to keep in mind:

Amsterdam is one of the safest cities in the world and is pretty much female-friendly, but general precautions should be taken to prevent petty thievery and baggage theft. Also the footpaths are in some places undistinguished from biking lanes; hence one should keep a lookout for signs to avoid any mishaps, since biking is a common form of transportation. Travelers, especially women, should be on their guard while near the Red Light Districts, which though have police security, sometimes attract vagrants and miscreants after dark. Also the sale and purchase of drugs is prevalent in the shadier sections of town, so caution should be exercised in such places.

Dine:

There is an array of restaurants in Amsterdam that offer various cuisines. Asian cuisine is abundantly found, especially in ‘Nieuwmarkt’, which is dubbed as Amsterdam’s Chinatown, where one can find restaurants offering Indonesian, Chinese, Thai and Japanese cuisine, as well as groceries. Indian restaurants here tend to be expensive, but are of excellent quality. Cheap Chinese and Middle-Eastern restaurants can be found on ‘Damstraat’ for travelers on a budget. Local specialties include the local cheese, which can be bought at specific cheese shops at Dappermarket or around Central Amsterdam; ‘Ossenworst’ which is a raw beef sausage with spices; and Dutch beer from the local breweries. Bars, pubs and nightclubs are abundant and offer a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Local Culture:

Amsterdam is one of the most historically and culturally rich cities in Europe. Seventeenth-century buildings and architectural masterpieces dot the entire city. The local canals are excellent places to visit, where one can board the open-air canal boats or the ferries, and journey through the canals, with the beautiful city as a backdrop. Cafés are abundant in Amsterdam and are frequented by locals as well as tourists for their daily brunches or even a place to relax after a long day. The city’s rich history is depicted in the museums, the most popular being the Van Gogh Museum, and others like the Rijksmuseum, Vermeer, Rembrandts and many more, which are filled with artifacts from the Golden Age of the city.
