Red Light District

Attraction details
Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: This area in the oldest part of Amsterdam is known for the red neon windows that display barely-dressed prostitutes advertising their services; it's all perfectly acceptable as long as it stays inside this designated area of the city.

We walked through during the day, but didn’t get chance on the night. I’d say it is a must visit when in Amsterdam to say you have been there, but it isn’t as much as it is hyped up to be. There are lots of empty windows and some of the women are not anything to look at. I think it’s just something you can say you have done.

Would recommend going into the Red Light District to anyone travelling to the city. During the day is a complete different experience compared to the evening. Enjoyed walking in the evening next to the canals with all the lights, lots of bars and cafes. Very romantic and the ladies of the night are really glam too. Open-mindedness is key.

The variety of girls has gone drastically down. The girls are mostly from southern Europe and are mostly higher age bracket. Unfortunately the quality of girls was very bad this time. In fact the girls cheat you by commiting something and than extracting more money for doing what they committed. It can start with 50 euro but you may end up paying 200 euros. Be very careful and don't get confused by their crazy behaviour.
