This was a terrible experience. The food was tasteless and I found a piece of plastic in one of our dishes so I’m guessing it’s microwaveable frozen meals. The staff were rude and I had the uncomfortable experience of seeing staff accuse a paying customer...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
