There is something for every traveller's taste here, whether you prefer culture and history, serious partying, or just the relaxing charm of an old European city.
Amsterdam is the top spot for sex tourism in the Netherlands, thanks to its infamous red-light district which is one of the Europes most well known tourist attractions.
The red light district is popular for both standard tourists and sex tourists alike, and sex shops, peep shows, strip clubs and countless prostitutes selling their wares behind red-lit glass windows abound.
Prostitution is legal in the Netherlands, just as it is in many other European countries and well regulated in Amsterdam, which arguably creates safer conditions for sex workers.
Known as 'De Wallen' (the quays) in Dutch, because the canals were once part of the city defenses (walls and moats).
Prostitution itself is limited to certain streets, mainly side streets and alleys, but the district is considered to include the canals, and some adjoining streets (such as Warmoesstraat and Zeedijk).
Anyway, there are still lots of window girls working in these red-light areas, especially in De Wallen.
From lots of personal journeys through the area I can tell you that many of these girls look like Playboy Centerfolds from a distance and most of those still look hot as hell when you get a bit closer.
In the red-light district of Amsterdam you’ll see scores of working girls flirting with people from behind their red-light windows.
This is a legal profession in Amsterdam and many prostitutes belong to a union.
The window spots for working girls are decreasing slowly all the time.
Transexual prostitutes are often from Brazil, Venezuela and other South American countries.
There are also windows where are two girls working if you're into having a threesome.
Escort prices in Amsterdam vary between €200-€400 for the full experience.
