Frommer's Amsterdam (Frommer's Complete Travel Guide Series)by George McDonald
Frommer's Amsterdam (13th Edition) is the only guide you'll need to plan the perfect trip to this vibrant, attractive city. Amsterdam is far more complex than its dated reputation as a hippie haven suggests, and we give you the best of both worlds—from the Red Light District to the Van Gogh Museum, from "smoking coffeeshops" to an evening at the Concertgebouw. It's all gezellig to Amsterdammers. Frommer's Amsterdam gives you insider tips on the best museums, big and small; the best antique shops in the Spiegelgracht quarter; the best restaurants for French, modern Dutch, or the Indonesian feast rijsttafel walking tours and biking tours along the Golden Age Canal and the Amstel River; plus information for side trips to Rotterdam, The Hague, Gouda, and other cities.
You'll also find candid reviews of a huge selection of accommodations in all price ranges, from romantic B&Bs to family-friendly hotels. Plus you'll get the latest trip-planning advice on everything from bargain airfares to customs requirements, money-saving tips, and a complete shopper's guide. You'll even get a free color fold-out map, a Dutch vocabulary list, and an online directory that makes trip-planning a snap!
