Starry Night at Amsterdam, The Netherlands

At night, Amsterdam retains its truest form yet added a new kind of air.
Many will agree that it is more lively, more fascinating and more fun particularly for those who are looking to experience everything the city is known for.

But just before the windows at Rosse Buurt (Red Light district) opens up, the best thing to do is to take on the city museums before the closing time, as there will be less queue, less crowd and one can have more time to check every stroke of Vincent van Gogh “Self Portrait with Felt Hat” at the Vincent van Gogh Museum or be awed by the light, shade and size of Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn’s masterpiece “The Night Watch” at Rijksmuseum.

Once you step outside the museums, you will be amazed on how the streets completely transformed, you still have the canal, the bicycles, the gabled houses but now every street is illuminated, every corner is lighted.

If you ask me to walk around any Red Light District on any other country I would absolutely hesitate, however in Amsterdam I feel no sense of danger walking around De Wallen, in fact it seems acceptable for visitors to peek around.

Above all else, the most wholesome way to spend a night in Amsterdam is just to walk around and soak up the ambiance that makes the city one of a kind.
