Tips for First-Time Travellers to Amsterdam
Be aware of the cyclists
Amsterdam is famous for its dozens of bike paths across the city. Keep an eye out for the cyclists, as well as an ear (the riders will often ring their bells at you if you're in their way).
Coffee shops and cafés are two different things
If you're looking for a good spot for a cappuccino, make your way to the nearest café. However, if you wander into a coffee shop, you'll find marijuana for sale as well as a select number of drinks.
Book your accommodation as soon as possible
Amsterdam isn't the cheapest destination in Europe. The limited size of the city means space is tight and hotels and hostels have high rates as a result. If you're planning to visit during the city's peak season or over a major event, you'll struggle to find a place to stay if you leave your airfare to Amsterdam and hotel bookings to the last minute.
