Amsterdam is best explored by water, and this affordable boat cruise gives you unobstructed views of canal-side attractions like the Anne Frank House and Hermitage Museum. The boat’s small size and comfortable seating mean you won't be jostled by crowds, and you can enjoy unlimited Heineken beer, wine, and soft drinks while gliding through Amsterdam’s UNESCO-listed waterways.

FREE to see! Amsterdam tries to be a big city, it is in fact very visited but still keeps the small town vibes!

This is one of the centers of town. It's where a lot of tram lines come together, a center for theaters and performing arts. So it's also a great place for food and drink. Lots of people around all day and night.

This area has many restaurants to eat at and Good Weekend Clubs for Socializing and using Weed and Booze in getting to know a stranger in any way you want to here .I almost always stay at a little hotel in the area just for kix and fun .I have a Apartment behind the rijks Museum 3 blocks away . I have read some of these reviews picking on the area . Its not True at all . I have been coming to Holland now since 1987 and never had a negative incident ever in this Wonderful City . Leidsaplein also has some of my grest restaurants for me thst i always eat at ,like the Blawue Hollander which is a place for great Dutch style foods and atmosphere .I used to Stay at the American hotel that has everything to offer . Including big beds and large rooms with balconies . Their restaurant at the Hotel is decorated in Art Newvo style . with a superb buffett in the mornings for the guest to order anything that they want .including. a lunch or Dinner with Wines . I know some people never have learned to get along with anyone nowhere that they go to . I hope i never run into these type of people's in Europe . France is also one of my favorite countries to Tour and Eat and Club in too .

It is a bustling and lively area in Amsterdam with mixed of local and tourists surrounded. This was the most crowded place in Amsterdam CBD during day and night time as long as the shops, cafe and restaurants are still open. It is also the interchange for different trams from different directions.

This lively area by Amsterdam's central canal ring, was just a short walk from my hotel in the Museum District. It's filled with restaurants, bars and at various times street entertainers. It's also filled with lot's of tourists. If that's your kind of thing, it's not mine, you'll love Leidseplein. It's a perfect spot for a pub crawl. It's also a good spot in terms of public transportation, with many lines intersecting here. Lively and touristy.
