Amsterdam, Nightlife- Red Light District

In Amsterdam it doesn’t matter if the week has just started or if the weekend is close, after the sun goes to bed, locals and tourists go out to party. When it comes to having fun, almost all of the visitors are curious to see with their own eyes the Red Light District are, where behind red curtains and clean windows, the girls are waiting for their customers.

Amsterdam, Nightlife- coffee shops

Amsterdam doesn’t only make you addicted to its landmarks and people, but it also give you the feeling that you can no longer continue your life without drinking the aromatic coffees that its coffee bars have to offer. Once tasted, you get the addiction for life! In order to supply yourself with these soft drugs, you can visit Trinity coffee shop. This bar is cheap and clean, the music played here is nice and for those who like to enjoy their stay in a fresh atmosphere, there is a separate non-smoking room. The services are excellent, the staff is really helpful and friendly and the atmosphere relaxing.

De Rokerij is next one in top, due to its mystical ambiance created by the tribal designs on the walls. It is prohibited to smoke inside, but they offer instead some herbal substitute and the drinks are quite cheap, taking into consideration its central location.
