TripAdvisor Reviews Home & Away Apartments Amsterdam
Travel Blogs from Amsterdam
The red light district is so weird! It was located on one of the canal streets which means in the middle of the street there is a big canal, with boats going through. Besides all the clubs and bars along the streets, there are windows after windows of prostitutes lit up in red lights them waiting for customers.
