Flights And Hotels

Up In The Clouds…

FTC Disclaimer : Keep in mind that we may receive commissions when you click our links and make purchases on flights, hotels, or tours and other activities that are fun to do in Amsterdam. This is at no extra cost to you.

Flights to Amsterdam are cheap because of the cheap airline tickets; the airlines offer for flights to and fro. The expensive part of Amsterdam is the stay.  Hotels are considerably more expensive, and the overall stay will cost you a few bucks, so make sure you are ready for that before you book your holiday there.  I also included a link for some cost effective Europe tours.

Van Gogh museum

The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam

The prime activity I would suggest you should indulge in, is visiting the one and the only Van Gogh museum! Walls are covered with art pieces and colors by Van Gogh himself, providing you an opportunity to drool and drown in the beauty of the museum. The ticket costs the only US $20! I also included some great hotels you should check out that are very close to this museum. 

Canal cruise

Canal in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Next up would be to take the one and a half hour canal cruise. You will not believe how beautiful Amsterdam looks when you are in waters, or well at least floating on water. The lights set in the waters, the smooth sail of the ship, all adding to your perfect experience. The trip has always been given a full 5-star rating and costs the only US $23.  


Moving along, I would suggest getting yourselves cocktails at Amsterdam’s ice bar. Experience the place’s coolest venue and have complimentary cocktails to go along with it. It has great reviews on Tripadvisor, but I ultimately recommend seeing for yourself what is has to offer. I have included a great list of hotels here too.


There you have it, people. A brief explanation of what there is to do in Amsterdam during your stay there. The city is, admittedly a bit on the expensive side, but keeps up with your savings and keep being a good sport, you will be able to afford the travel. Moreover, you will not at all regret any part of it. Hope to have helped you out and convinced you to head to Amsterdam soon enough!
