Amsterdam is an amazing, stunning and breathtaking city... seriously, it's nearly TOO amazing, stunning and breathtaking - no kidding. Literally every building is a small piece of art itself. Even though it's a pretty small town with only around 750.000 habitants, I really, really recommend it to everyone to visit Amsterdam at least once in their lifes (just be smarter and choose spring or summer so it won't be as cloudy and windy as I experienced Amsterdam).
The clichés are true by the way: the cheese, the tulips, the coffee shops, the bikes, the huge windows without curtains. Everyone, no matter of which age or social status, is riding the bike and normally the bikes tend to be old, cheap and rusty. The people seem to be nice and really relaxed as well although it's a bit hard to tell because Amsterdam is overly crowded with tourists.
The only thing I really didn't like was the food. It's very expensive and highly lacks of quality at the same time. This might be the reason why despite of all the greasy food the people here are generally slender.. and I assume that it's one of the main reasons why it's not forbidden to consume cannabis since only with the munchies you can stand this gross stuff..!
My first post about Amsterdam focuses on the general sightseeing every tourist does.
