    Sex museum is a good laugh.
    But fun in Amsterdam is always dependant on how adventurous your willing to be. If you wana take advantage of there lax laws go to the Grasshopper bar, certainly an eye opener

    the squares are good @ nite- leisiplein (sp) and rembrantplein, lots of bars with outdoor seating, good for a drink and people watching. pently of coffee shops in the red light district. the red light district is good @ night, its completely safe, theres herds of japanese tourists walking about lol. the sex shows are not bad. haha theres a bit in district where there's she'men, you cant miss them, they look freaky big time! watch out for the junkies in the red light distrcit, they'll whisper stuff like 'coke, hash' etc when you walk by. just ignore them, if you speak to them they are so hard to get rid off, plus they rip you off anyway. van gogh museum is good if you like art. flower market is nice. hope that helps! have a nice trip!

    Agree with most of the above, Leidseplein is my fave area, some of the best coffee shops, not sleazy like the RLD, and far more pleasant in general.

    100% agree.. Red light is boring after a while if you've been before.. if you haven't then I guess you have to see it once! depends what you're after tho.. I saw some ar%ehole brits getting loud and rowdy in the red light a while back..none of that in Leidesplain (sp?)

    check out Maos falafel - its a chain with restaurants all over dam. 5 euros eat as much as you can type of falafel, absolutely divine tahini sauce and all the crap that goes with it!

    Have fun bro! Its a good city in many ways. My wife lived there for 10 years so we go there quite often to meet friends. I really like it.

    Grass hopper and blubirdsa are the 2 main big coffee shops but the better and cheaper ones are the private owned ones like ro66 etc

    Anne Franks House....

    .... it's been a while since I last went tho. I guess you have to view the 'back streets' just for the experience, as you do the coffee houses. Lots of history there tho IIRC

    cheers, for coffee shops i'm guessing the ones in less touristy places are cheaper what about out of the city? any other named places for cheaper stuff?

    the red light district would be good for a bit, cheers for that vegan needed a cheap place to eat
