    Amsterdam is a great place for tourists to have a good time really. Lots of bars and clubs, a massive red light district (even if you don't want to fuck a whore it's still a great laugh to walk around and check all the girls behind the windows), coffee shops (which is where you get ur weed) and plenty of places to get some real dutch food. The centre of Amsterdam is very focused on tourism, the outskirts of A'dam are a big shithole really.
    We'll only be in the city centre anyway, so avoiding the shite areas shouldnt be a problem

    I don't think the tourist law is in Amsterdam yet, it was just in some small towns. I only spent 2 days in Amsterdam on my visit to netherlands. There was nice coffee shop called 420 cafe in the central you should check it out, http://www.coffeeshopsamsterdam.com/...-420-cafe.html. And there was this bar really close by called Teasers which had some nice girls dancing on the bar counter. It was a bit expensive but it was fun place to go for few drinks. Wish I spent more time in Amsteradm, Rotterdam is pretty nice too.

    I'm not sure but I think that law didn't pass.
    And even if it did nobody would give a shit anyway.

    They passed a law that gives only dutch citizens the right to smoke marijuana in the coffee shops, and each one can only have 1500 registered smokers. Which is bullshit.

    It's not enforced yet in Amsterdam if I'm not mistaken.

    I can't believe anyone hasn't suggested this but take a device that has GPS capabilities with you. It is seriously easy to get lost there due to the way the city is designed.

    Although if you're staying near the core of the city then you probably won't need one but it doesn't hurt to have one either way.

    I assumed someone that goes to a foreign country would take some form of a roadmap with em, but if you think it needs mentioning.

    What?
    Just look up at the clock tower and you know where you are, sort of.

    Amersfoort is a good example of a city where you can easily find your way without maps

    You would be surprised at how many people don't. It's more ideal though if you're venturing out of the general tourist area though.

    It's not a shithole but it's also not very special. There are only a few places that are really nice.

    Packing just now!

    All cofeeshops in Amsterdam are a bit overpriced, but if you want a nice one to hang out with your friends try Prix d'Ami coffeeshop.

    Its like really closeby the station and you can play pool and get smoothies while smokeing there.

    Wasn't a law added that only residents of the Netherlands can go into "coffee shops" a bit ago? Some time in 2011.
    IIRC, Netherlands wanted to do so but the Mayors of the largely touristy towns said they disagree and they found that if the Netherlands wants to put in the new law, it can't be done for atleast a few years (I believe it was 5 years?), so it looks like the Netherlands is still weed-central until 2016, atleast in the touristy areas like Amsterdam.
