Amsterdam promises a whole lot of fun and frolic – it is an experience you will cherish for a lifetime. There is so much to explore starting from museums and markets to the party scene!
Take a Tour of Rijksmuseum
Begin with a tour of the Rijksmuseum which is one of the grandest museums in Amsterdam. Reopened in 2013 after a 10-year, €375 million refurbishment, you must visit to marvel at the brilliant Gothic and Renaissance building that houses a magnificent collection of Dutch masterworks from the Golden Age. Use the museum’s app to book a tour – it is an amazing way to understand the cultural heritage of the Dutch capital.
Visit De Negen Straatjes
Right in the middle of the canal belt in Jordaan, this micro-neighborhood of quaint and quirky streets has loads of intimate and cozy cafés, independent boutiques, vintage stores and artisanal food shops. An amazing place to experience old Amsterdam and take some pictures! Eat at Ree7 or Libertine Café, have coffee at Screaming Beans, and shop at Zipper and Catwalk Junkie.
Needless to say, Amsterdam offers one of the best party experiences in the world with swanky cocktail bars, happening live music venues, wild pub crawls, crazy club nights and much more. DJs from all over Europe keep the crowds going with everything from techno, dubstep, hip-hop, trance, funk, to deep house. Check out Club NYX, Club Church, AIR Amsterdam, O’Reilly’s, Molly Malone’s Irish Pub, St. James’s Gate Irish Pub, etc. Do sign up for a pub crawl – you can see the Red Light District, have the finest of vodka (extremely popular in Amsterdam), along with a variety of other drinks, meet new people, and have an awesome night.

Eat at Foodhallen
If you are a foodie, then a visit to the flourishing street food scene at this chic gastro palazzo is a must. This culinary destination has lots of food stalls and bars to take your pick from. Try dim sums, tacos, gourmet doughnuts, barbeque, and other lip-smacking items.
Sing at the Top of Your Voice
Even though the interior is a little grimy, The End is one of the best places in town to have the time of your life. This loud and cramped up karaoke bar lets you show off your singing talents (or lack thereof) – no one will mind croaky voices and bad tunes! Sing away to your heart’s content and enjoy!
Ready to let your hair down and party after a day of sightseeing and eating? Amsterdam beckons you!
