So I am recently just back from Amsterdam and all I can say is it is one of the most beautiful place. Myself and 4 of my friends headed over for a girly trip away. Weather wise we didn't know what to expect but we arrived on the most amazing day. It did get colder as the days went on but it wasn't as bad as expected.
We headed over on Thursday morning and left Sunday morning. We had planned to go to most of the must see tours and museums and had booked The Anne Frank tour before leaving. This was the best decision we had made because the queues when we got there were unbelievable.
The hotel that was book was something so crazy! It was fully kitted out with a smart TV, fancy sofas and the comfiest beds. Not bad for somewhere we would only be spending the night! It was called Aparthotel which is based like a hotel but the rooms are more or less apartments. Its about a 5 minute train journey from Amsterdam central and I would seriously recommend checking it out if you are considering heading over.
The first night we headed to the read light district and it was nothing like I expected. There was something a tad creepy about it, probably because it was late at night but at least I can say I've been there. The heineken Tour was definitely the highlight for me as we had the best fun. You are shown how the whole process works and what exactly goes into the beer. You also get 2 tokens to get 2 free pints at the end. This is where myself and the girls had the most fun. Dancing and singing to the music that was playing and just having the general craic with the barmen.
As well as the tours they city itself is one of the most beautiful things. All the buildings have a antique look about them and stand on a sort of slant which makes them look a bit wonky. The whole place is built around canal after canal which makes everything look that little bit more pretty.
If you are thinking of Amsterdam as a trip I would seriously advise you to just go and book it. It is as cheap and as fun as you make it and a trip you will definitely not forget.
