My best travel tips
Money and cost
If you’re spending a whole day in Zaanse Schans (highly recommended!!) you can get the Zaanse Schans Card for 15 EUR. You’ll get free entrance to a few different museums as well as discounts in some of the shops!
Safety and security
Distracted Walking and Inexperienced Bicycling are Risky:A large percentage of Dutch citizens use bicycles for their daily commute and transport. There are bicycles everywhere in the city, probably more than you have ever seen. Be mindful and vigilant when walking. Main transportation routes are often composed of a street, a tram track, a sidewalk and a bicycle lane, all going along the same direction. Walkers need to stay in the walking lane, and failing to do so is dangerous. Since the city is relatively small in area, there is much to see in close proximity. Many visitors do the majority of their sight-seeing on foot, and this is entirely feasible. But pay attention!
Tours and attractions
Get Around Free with the Iamsterdam Card: The card is purchased in increments of 1 to 4 days, but specific to the hour. Click here: www.partner.viator.com
Often visitors have an inkling to get out of the city, and see some of the other fabulous locations in the area around Amsterdam. Day trips are offered by various tourist agencies and websites, running out of Amsterdam each day. Some of the more popular tours include Zaanse Schans and Vollendam, offered several times daily, as well as Marken, Haarlem, and Muiderslot Castle. In the spring Keukenhof, and the tulip fields take over for several weeks. While there is some comfort in having a set schedule, transport, and guide, these tours can be expensive. If you are more adventurous, your best option may be to set up your own itinerary and go at your own pace.
Free Museum Entrance Sometimes Demands a Flexible Schedule - Free entrance to the museums throughout the city is amazing! At some museums, you can walk right in. But be aware that at very popular locations, there will be hundreds of people with pre-purchased tickets ahead of you. Either plan your schedule so you can go elsewhere and return at the time you are given, or purchase tickets before your trip. There are plenty of attractions in the area of the Van Gogh Museum, if you opt to take the free entrance, including the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art, the Amsterdam Diamond Museum, Vondelpark, and of course, Amsterdam’s pride, the Rijksmuseum. If you are a shopper, the upscale shopping district, featuring all of the exclusive brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Dolce and Gabbana, Chanel, and Calvin Klein, is only 2 blocks away as well.
Transportation
Canal Cruises are Essential, and Can Be Free: Canal cruises from all the major suppliers come free with the Iamsterdam card. There are various types of cruises and companies, from full enclosed and heated cruisers, to complete open air cruises, with guests wrapped in blankets.Cruises depart from all around the canal circle. If you are in town for more than one day, you have an opportunity to see how busy various areas are, so that you can choose to launch in an area with a smaller crowd. It is important to be among those first to board, particularly when taking an enclosed cruise. A window seat is a must! The cruise is not worthwhile with an inside eat.Most of the cruise lines offer headsets, with a narrative in multiple languages. It was a little cheesy at times, but a lot of information was given, and we learned a lot. On an enclosed boat, check your windows before sitting down, if you are planning to take pictures! The views will be pretty amazing at times, and they give y
