Amsterdam is certainly one of the most eclectic cities on the planet. From truly one-of-a-kind culture to a scintillating nightlife and unique social settings, this area hosts millions of travellers from all walks of life on an annual basis. So, it only stands to reason that you might be planning an excursion in the near future. Are there any tips and tricks to consider in advance? Let's take a quick look at what the experts have to say.

Currency Exchange Rates

Amsterdam recognises the Euro as its official form of currency while also accepting alternatives such as the dollar and the pound. However, remember that some institutions will charge excessive fees during the exchange process. This is particularly the case when referring to platforms found within airports and other tourist hotspots.

It is much better to perform any type of currency exchange at your bank or financial institution before departing. You can therefore rest assured that the rates are accurate and that any commissions will be kept to a minimum.

Meeting Other Like-Minded Travellers

There are many ways in which you can connect with others during your stay here. One of the best is to become immersed within decidedly laid-back social settings. For example, a coffeeshop in Amsterdam will provide you with plenty of opportunities to meet with locals and foreigners alike. This is also an excellent way to exchange information such as learning about the most popular attractions or what are open at certain times. Always remember that word of mouth is extremely important when travelling abroad!

When is the Best Time of the Year to Visit?

This is a slightly loaded question, as the fact of the matter is that Amsterdam is popular throughout the year. The answers will therefore be based around your personal tastes as well as your budgetary requirements. If you are hoping to avoid the height of the tourist season (due to increased expenses), it could be prudent to travel during the early autumn or the late spring. Let's also note that Amsterdam can sometimes become quite cold in the winter. If you are not a fan of freezing temperatures, a spring excursion could represent the best solution.

Whether arriving here for business or pleasure, you will love what the city of Amsterdam has to offer. Planning ahead can also ensure that you make the most out of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
