Batman, The Shinny Knight and others are popular figures in the central area oa Amsterdam. As I’ve been told, the basic rules for a pleasing Amsterdam experience are:
1. Never take with you all the money, the cards and the documents because is full of pick-pockets (I didn’t see any);
2. If you visit Red Light District, stick to the areas where are cameras; otherwise you are in risk of unpleasant happenings;
3. Don’t take photos of the girls from the red windows – it is possible to be “polite” asked to erase them;
4. If you want to taste local “grass” flavours try only the legal ones, from the specialised shops; don’t take mushrooms, other things, don’t buy anything from the streets; if you try the famous “grass” stay in that place for about an hour to pass it’s effect.
