6 hour wait at Amsterdam flying Man to Dubai

Has anyone got any suggestions as to how to kill these hours? It is a very long wait.....can I exit the airport into the city?

Schiphol airport is nice and modern and has masses of shops and restaurants. There is a library and a small branch of the Rijksmuseum if you are interested in art. If you have to spend a long time at any airport, this is a good one to do it in.

Why not fly direct from MAN to DXB on Emirates A380?

Yes, you can leave the airport and explore Amsterdam if you don't need a visa.

Unless the price difference is ££££'s for the life of me I cannot understand why you don't take one of the three daily direct flights on Emirates.

Another vote for MAN-DXB with Emirates - they have three direct flights a day from Manchester.

Sounds as though the flight is probably booked and cheaper than Emirates.

Probably one of the few, who has done Amsters too many times to think it worth leaving the airport,in all honesty I would stay airside for the duration.

Another vote to stay in the airport.

AMS has to be one of the better for extended stays at the airport.

If you are feeling lucky, you could visit the casino located in the transit area.
