Europe Netherlands Travel

Exploring Europe: Amsterdam

We only had a day and a half to explore Netherlands, so everything is practically much a blur. We rode a HOHO bus to explore the heart of Amsterdam, then hired a private car to take us to Zaanse Schans and Volendam. We didn’t get to enter the Rijksmuseum because of the lack of time, but we were lucky enough to skip the queue and visit Anne Frank’s House without scoring any advance bookings or tickets.

We also went to the Red Light District, just to see what’s the scene like. The scene goes something like this: Naked ladies were by modeling against a glass door. There’ll be at least three ladies at a time per building, and all you have to do is open the door then pay up. Simple, straightforward and best of all, legal. Just don’t take photos of the ladies because that’s a huge no-no and you could go to jail for it. There are also clubs that allows you to watch live sex (at least that’s what I saw on the signage) and sex-related museums, but that’s too awkward to visit during a family-oriented trip. Haha!

Anyway, here are some of the photos during our trip:

    I’m not the least interested in the debaucheries of Amsterdam, but I would still love to see walk around in appreciation of the city!

    NGL, I was more curious to read more about the RLD… but then you mentioned you aren’t allowed to take photos. :( Boo! Lol. Amsterdam, like the other popular European destinations, is very picturesque though. Haha. While browsing the photos, I was taken to flashbacks of The Fault in Our Stars movie in some of them.

    Awww…Amsterdam is beautiful to behold. It’s a must-visit place for me, since Anne Frank’s Museum is also there! :) ❤❤❤
