DO: Heineken experience – I’m not a beer drinker and I had so much fun. It’s very interactive and you definitely get your money’s worth with the beer tastings. Recommend going up top at the end to get a beautiful view of Amsterdam! Make sure you pre-purchase tickets (we bought ours from the reception at our hostel).
SEE: Red Light District at night – safer and cleaner then you would think…and you won’t find anything like it anywhere else!
DRINK: We had the best time drinking in our hostel, St Christopher’s Hostel. Met so many great people and they had pub crawls that we didn’t do but sounded fun!
EAT: Doner Kebabas and Vlaamse Fries from anywhere in Amsterdam is a must try.
PLAY: Rent bikes, pack a picnic and go around Vondel park! Also space cakes from the coffeeshops and the Rijksmuseum was a super fun idea…because ‘when in Rome do as the Romans do’ 😉
TRY: Fresh stroopwaffles in Albert Market, and waffles with ice cream and Nutella from anywhere. And hanging out at any coffeeshops.
STAY: St Christopher’s Hostel was awesome. Most comfiest bed I’ve ever slept in! Central location, free breakfast, and lots of fun events. Staff is all super helpful too.
