Ok, so everyone has a picture on the "I Amsterdam" enormous letters.
But seriously, after doing so, start walking in the gardens just in front (that is, if you haven't got there through them already).
It's amazing to look at the place from far away, it's so magnanimous!

The best time to go there is in the late afternoon, when you still have light enough to have some good pictures, but not many people. The place is crowded with tourists...

Go get your photographic souvenir from Amsterdam ;)

Convenient - the most famous museums in one area. Spacious place nice for walking. Don't miss famous IAMsterdam letters (always crowded with teenagers climbing on the top of letters for making photos).

So much going on, buskers, street food, kids playground...plus 'those letters', most photographed landmark around, apparently.

In this area is the Iamsterdam sign which is popular for photos. It is free to take photos. Tip - visit early so that you can have a photo with the big structure on your own! Luckily i was staying around the corner so i woke up at about 6am and went for a walk past. Surrounding the area is spacious parkland and cute terrace houses. There are quite a few museums in the area nearby to visit.

Nice place to get a quick refreshment, and ease the feet after the museum visits...and there's the Iamsterdam sign, like everyone else says-impossible to NOT get other tourists in pics, but fun!
