If you love delicious local food, quirky shops, unique cultural activities and long walks without another tourist in sight, and you want insider tips so you can make the best decisions about how YOU want to spend your time in Amsterdam, this is the guide for you.
Alison and I have lived and worked in Amsterdam. We love the city and believe visitors miss a lot of the best parts of this unique, dynamic city. Our answer was Now What Amsterdam, a guide which shows you the hideaways only the locals know, as well as the top sites you actually should see – without spending all your time standing in line like a tourist.
In Now What Amsterdam, you'll learn where in-the-know locals eat, shop, and stay, as well as discover a few worthy day trips from the city. Alison has hand-picked and tested each location, providing you a virtual "friend in the city," showing you the sights as an honoured guest. This book is filled with quirky facts, personal insights and words of caution, so you can avoid the tourist traps.
What you won’t find in this guide
If you’re looking for a list of every museum, shop, restaurant, and activity in Amsterdam, with long-winded historical diatribes, this guide is not for you. If you are planning to party all night and sleep all day, this guide won’t help you.
What others are sayingThis is a great little guide for the traveller who wants to get off the beaten track and see more of the “real” Amsterdam. I appreciated many of the suggestions in the book about where to go for a quieter experience of this busy, and sometimes overwhelming, city.
Reading this eBook will certainly make you dream of little cobblestone sidewalks, canal rides and coffee roasting in small coffee shops. I just wish I had this guide every time I went to Amsterdam.
