Your tips If you are visiting for only a short time, stay in the city rather than the outskirts or airport region. There are loads of hotels of every rating and its easier to get around if you don't have to travel distances to the tourist attractions, especially at night.
Despite the cold and wet weather we couldn't wait to get out and about to explore. The locals were fantastic .. friendly and helpful and so proud of their city. Our cameras were clicking 24/7 and we have wonderful memories of the canals, beautiful architecture and constant buzz that is Amsterdam. One day we'll be back .. when its Spring again and the tulips are in bloom. Thank you Amsterdam!
