A Ride on the Wild Side

Odds are that if you're traveling to Amsterdam, you've already heard about the Red Light District. So we won't drone on and on about the brothels or the sex shops, the fabulous museums or the beautiful architecture, the bars or the clubs. What we will tell you is although the city has a very liberal attitude about what you can buy, make sure you are buying from a licensed shop rather than a black market dealer. Also, be careful about taking pictures of any of the women or men who may be showing their wares in the window, as this is also illegal. When traveling in the Red Light District keep an open mind and you are sure to have a night like none other.
