I lived a few years in Amsterdam and recently moved to New York for my work. I love travel around the globe and as such visited many countries in almost every continent. On my trips I love to discover new cultures and great food.
What I would recommend to first time visitors of Amsterdam? Walk on the Albert Cuyp, eat a raw herring and flush it away with a cold Heineken beer from the Heineken museum. After the museum grab a beer on one of the many terraces in the Pijp and find a good restaurant. Finish off the night with a concert in the Paradiso or Melkweg. If clubbing is more your thing, head to Club Air, Studio 80, Trouw. I promise you will have a great day... and night!
