    Hello any 1 helpful, well my friend and I will be in AmDam June 3-19 and we are kinda needing a guide to some good site seeing like museums or what not. Also to some good pubs and clubs or something of the sort. I'm a 27 yr old male and my buddy is 22 yr old male, we've been to AmDam once before, but didn't get much site seeing in, would like to do a lil more this tyme, but I must say, we are stoners lol :afro:

    have fun having to ask locals to buy weed for you, I'm pretty sure they just got rid of cannabis tourism. Meaning only if you live there can you buy weed now

    ohsodreadful has received bad information. as of now no rules/laws are in effect.

    ive been to dam once with my ex girlfriend. we stayed 4 nights at a b&b and just cruised around. this time im staying in a hostel alone so im likely to get a lot more stuff done.

    active smoking is the focus, although im likely to spend long days in vondle/amstel park with my aerobie.

    you guys just visiting dam? im coming from italy, ive been in europe for 6 months.

    the last that I heard was that they were thinking about doing it, but hadn't done it.


    still, probably a good idea to follow the news, see when the law might change, just in case it could be changed while you are there

    Yeah that law or whatever, has not pass yet and who knows if it even will, that's a big lost of money for them, but any ways don't want to get in to all that right now lol.

    I'm from San Diego, CA. born and educated in so-cal. the last two years (except for the summer) ive spent overseas for work. just now finishing up my second year. coming from italy by train, flying to cali from amsterdam.

    taking up some much needed r&r in dam for a week before headed back to cali to face reality.

    This trip will have lots of site seeing, including theaters, museums, cycling trips, and local shops, but I party pretty hard sometimes. no hard core drugs. just smoking, drinking, and reckless disregard for human life.

    looking forward to meetin up for a sesh.

    I went to Amsterdam last spring and absolutely loved it :), so here are my suggestions.

    Take a free tour around the city center. There are guides waiting next to the National Monument at Dam Square at a certain time (I forgot when). The tour takes about 2 hours on foot and doesn't include any museum visits, but you get to learn some local history, get a sense of orientation and see the important sights. Although it is officially free of charge, the guides expect you to be happy with it and give them some money at the end.
    You should be able to get information about this tour and other events at your hostel. If you don't like walking, you can rent a bike almost everywhere.

    Apart from the obvious museum choices (Marijuana M., Sex M., Amsterdam Dungeon...) I visited Van Gogh museum and liked it very much.

    Unfortunately I don't remember the names of the pubs and coffee shops I've gone to, but there are a lot of them around, so no need to worry ;).

    Have fun!

    You're welcome. Make sure to write about your trip when you get back so that I can be properly envious ;).
