I bought this yogurt (chocolate chip yogurt) in Amsterdam and it is the best food I have ever had. Not just the best yogurt (which it is), but the best FOOD. Trust me. You want to eat this.

Completely diverse city with beautiful scenery, great beer and seedy scenes. Wander round the canals and stop in the local cafes or soak up some culture in one of Amsterdam's many museums. Amsterdam is also, obviously, a great night out, really chilled out - no fuss.

The city is clean and attractive with thousands of things to experience. Easy transportation. Here's a tip if you're on a budget, stay in Haarlem and take the fifteen minute train ride to the Central Station in Amsterdam. Could save you as much as 100 USD per night!

Amsterdam? The golden teacher.

Amsterdam will inspire a deeper appreciation for beauty and romance, and it will get your creative juices flowing. Fun fact - Tarantino wrote Pulp Fiction in Amsterdam.

A city, pulled from and guarded against the encroaching sea, lined with canals; it's an amazing place. Plenty to see and do here, including the infamous "coffee shops" that sell assorted drugs and a few world-famous museums.

Recommend doing a little research prior to arrival. Figure out what you want to see as there is too much to enjoy in one visit. History buffs will really enjoy the city. Heineken factory tour is great (especially if it is your birthday!).

My new favorite city! I can't say enough good things about this amazing place! So beautiful and historic and so decadently grown up! It's a place for adults to play and be adults. The city attracts some of the most interesting people from around the world. And the Dutch in Amsterdam have all the quailities I love in New Yorkers, forward and friendly, hard but helpful. Love it!

Amsterdam did not disappoint. The coffee shops were just as advertised - full of everything that's outlawed in the States (well, almost everything). Heckling the Johns as they sheepishly exited a prostitute's window front 'din of sin' was almost as much fun as the Van Gogh Museum and nearly as enjoyable as Dutch hospitality (well humored and as accommodating as ever). Kindly note though that Amsterdam is not Holland - it's a world onto itself.

I have been back too many times to count! Amsterdam is a Beautiful City with Great People! The culture and hotels are exquisite. I can't wait to go back!

Oh, Amsterdam. I give it four stars out of pure nostalgic affection, though in the last decade it has sloughed off the scrappy, DIY vibe I loved (all the cool kids moved to Berlin and made way for Euro-yuppies?). It's getting more and more orderly and cute. Still, it's a cool biking city and has a wonderful small scale--you can walk across the center in 45 minutes. There's also tons of stuff to do here with kids, and the whole place is so fantastical it feels like a fairytale city. And at twilight, when the golden windows in the buildings reflect on the dark-blue canal water, there's nothing like it. It's a magic place.
