To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.

I always recommend to sing up for a free walking tour of Amsterdam (or any other city) - freetour. This way you are free to tip or not if you liked it. We had a full day and here is what we did - we did a free food walking tour and then a historic Amsterdam tour. Then we went to Van Gogh museum. In the evening we did a boat ride in the channels and walked the red district - avoid the prostitution museum. Also, see if you can make to Heineken brewery.
