Top 5 Things to do in Amsterdam!
1. Smoke weed in the Coffeeshops!
In Amsterdam, a coffeeshop is a weed shop. If you are 18 or older, you can purchase cannabis and even smoke and chill inside the cool lounges! And order snacks! It’s a true weed bar! Totally the future! Try spacecake – but eat only half!

3. Bicycle around
Amsterdam is famous for the bikes everywhere! Rent a bike and explore the city with your buds! Be careful to watch where you are going and not be too high!:)
4. Day trip outside the city
You can take public transportation or an Uber to the beach, or head to the countryside for some authentic Dutch sights like castles and flower farms.
5. Canal Boat Tours
Amsterdam is a city of canals! The boat tours are a classic! You can pop champagne and have a high-end spread of food on some of them.
Go to the Van Gough Museum
- last time the line was so long we didn’t even try. So perhaps get tickets in advance!
Try magic truffles
- What are magic truffles? To my knowledge, they’re samesame as magic mushrooms – psychedelics! It’s not something to take lightly! If you have no experience with shrooms or anything, prob not a good idea unless you are with people who are pros and you guys have a plan! And as always, moderation is key! I have a friend who tried them and went to the Van Gough museum and i’m sure it’s an amazing experience:)
