AMSTERDAM
Amsterdam is a fascinating and cosmopolitan city and has long been a favourite destination for our adult teams. Bars open for just about 24 hours a day, a 'coffee' shop culture, and a permissive sex industry may have something to do with this. For nightlife the red light district is a popular attraction, but the Rembrantsplein and Leidseplein also offer Amsterdam nightlife at its best. Both squares have a myriad of bars, restaurants and nightclubs and the atmosphere on a weekend has to be experienced to be believed.

Amsterdam by day is equally fascinating. Tourist images of beautiful canals and buildings, world class museums and excellent shopping facilities become a reality. Sitting in a pavement cafe is a relaxing way of seeing Amsterdammers at work and play. If you are feeling more energetic you can hire pedaloes on the canals.
