As an online travel agent to various locations that contain excellent self-catering accommodation we write via blogs about our locations and resorts. We give details of where you might enjoy visiting. We have written a number of articles in the past about Amsterdam mainly because Amsterdam is a beautiful city and we are just lucky to be able to provide top grade holiday accommodation there. Our Amsterdam holiday rentals are excellent.
But there is a side to Amsterdam Travel Bloggers like myself not maybe totally avoid but somewhat circumvent. Of course it’s the sex tourism, Amsterdam Red Light District is glaringly obvious for all to see. So we decided to stay on the guide objectives and point out certain facts that the visitor will or should find interest or even useful. Firstly remember there is a lot to see there from the brothels , to sex shops and area museums. There really is nothing left to the imagination. The area is close to Centraal Railway Station in an area known as Centruum. Very easy to find on Google maps etc. I think if its your first time in the Rossbuut “Red Light District” be prepared to be shocked. Most adults nowadays will have heard of the Amsterdam Red Light district and will be curious to see what it entails.
Ok everyone will have their reasons for visiting. The majority will just have a visitor curiosity of normal kind in relation to any new area and its unusual city attractions. Like the groups of Asians with their cameras off loading from buses. But be warned not in the direction of the female entertainers its strictly banned. Of course hen and stage parties will always be around excitedly laughing. Others will be there to enjoy the fruits of the individual men or women that are displaying themselves for service.
You ll find women there of all nationalities plying there trade on show in red clad window displays. The Dutch as a group of people don’t take things likely and area notably well organized and as such monitor the traders or entertainers of the area legally and medically, as a visitors you should also behave with a level of respect to those working there even if your watching from a distance.
They are of course many other aspects to Amsterdam life and all well worth seeing. The Jordaan area where www.goholidaylets.com has some wonderful holiday rentals is well worth a visit. A Dutch website describes it as similar to the Cockney area of London, not a comparison we can give but understand the significance.
Another area is the Spiegelgracht.!!! It is a canal in the centre of Amsterdam, located near the Prinsengracht. Built in the 16th century, it is a part of the Canals of Amsterdam which have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We also happen to have self-catering accommodation sited there.
