"Relaxing by Canals and Burning Joints" Amsterdam Favorite Tip by ADV27

Amsterdam General: 993 reviews and 1,165 photos


Favorite thing: The best thing about Amsterdam is that there is so much to do, night and day, that you never have the chance to get bored. The coffeeshops, the food, museums, sitting along the canals, red light district, the Heiniken Brewery and so much more.

Fondest memory: Wow!!! The best memory I have of A-Dam occured this last summer. I had just arrived and gotten a room. Met up with some friends and went to a little coffeeshop. While we were rollling up some joints and getting ready to burn, we began talking to a man sitting there. Before we knew it he was passing his "purro," telling us stories of when he used to run drugs and how rich he was, and then just at the climax of our being stoned, he lifted his shirt to show us where his stomach had been sliced open multiple times when 3 guys had tried to kill him in his house, he of course killed all three men. we packed up and headed of to the next coffeeshop, making sure not to laugh about the crazy situation until we had gotten around the corner.
