Holiday in Modern Amsterdam

by Emily DUNBAR on August 10, 2009

The city of Amsterdam has a lot more to offer than sex, drugs, and even culture. Shopping is amazing there, both on the shopping streets and in the numerous markets. Being one of the foremost centres of culture in Europe, there are literally hundreds of venues that offer world class entertainment throughout the city.

Museums abound. Plenty of low-cost entertainment can be found, and there are lots of festivals and cultural events that may interest you. Add street performers and live bands in the many bars and clubs to complete the scene.

Accommodations vary, from camping, hostels, inexpensive hotels, luxury hotels, to holiday apartments that are available for short let. If you are travelling with a group of friends, or your family, short let apartments are a great idea. You can find lovely, roomy apartments for one hundred euros a day in the Jordaan area to beautifully furnished two-story apartments in the Canal.

Do you want even more luxury? How about a gorgeous, fully furnished holiday apartment with several flat screen televisions, a couple of balconies, and modern kitchen and baths? Place it near the best museums, the Anne Frank house, some of the best restaurants, Dam Square, and the Central Station all for 235 euros!

Driving is discouraged in the centre of the city. You have the option of bus and tram lines, free ferries that transport both pedestrians and cyclists, fare charging ferries, water taxis, rental boats, and a water bus, as well as canal cruises. Two of the best ways to see much of what Amsterdam has to offer is by.
