"Beware if you are a female..." Walking Alone Tip by lee_brown

Walking Alone, Amsterdam: 19 reviews and 7 photos

Beware if you are a female walking around Amsterdam on your own - I was accosted every ten paces, it was a real nuisance, either they blocked my way or tapped me on the shoulder, even just saying something (usually unintelligble) became enough to put me off ever wanting to visit again. I found though that to get away from the main shopping streets and as far away from the red light district as possible diminished the harrassment.

Address: Amsterdam
