Well read this link for sure. Then read the links-stickys to the right of the Amsterdam Forum.

These links are full of good info.

As to any specific advice?

A waste of time since you gave not one tiny hint as to what you might like to do.

Museums? Churches? Sex Clubs? Coffeeshops? Pubs? Dance Clubs?

If you stop being so lazy, and give some idea of your budget, the number of days in town, your actual interests you might get some better advice.

I feel one should visit the Riksmuseum, take a canal cruise, bike ride, add in your pubs and CS's and you have the first day.

U can also do a coffeeshpo tour. walk the canals.

Thankyou Actionfilter, thats really good advice...I am thinking of the Cheese and Wine Cruise and an Amsterdan Tour (any companies you would recomend)? thanks for reply.

When I asked I just wanted hints and tips on day trips, bars, restaurants etc I didn't expect nasty comments of people who I would rather not give advice!!

Look we regulars here spend many many hours giving of our time giving advice helping members have better vacations. We also save folks $1000's of dollars.

It annoys we that folks like yourself will ask for advice and then not take 3 minutes to frame what they are after. Truly lazy IMO.

Even after they are asked nicely they will not take 3 mins to frame their questions, give some idea of how long they are in town, or anything else that a reasonable person might offer when asking for advice.

All The Above---- and that is about as far as you were willing to go.

Now if you had taken the time to read those links I posted for you virtually all your questions except for maybe those dealing with sex clubs would be answered.

I expect you to do a little work here. Not a lot. But some.

Did you read the links yet?
