"Trot Trot" Walking Tip by vickss

Walking, Amsterdam: 44 reviews and 51 photos

Amsterdam is a small city and walking and cycling is a way of life and is very natural.
I had visited Philips head quarters and one of the top guys said he comes to the office in a bicycle. So its THAT ok.
Infact if you normally ask a local the distance to a place he will tell you the WALKING distance unless it is too far off.
One thing that one shoudl be careful about is that those on cycles- specially the kids pedal pretty fast and unless you stay cautious you are bound to smash with htme one day or the other.
The cycling lane is just alongside the pedestrian lane and for colour blinds LIKE ME it can become problematic. By the way I managed to come out of th place without any accidents. But lotta close encounters.
