Laura asks…

I’m going on a transatlantic cruise stopping in Paris, London & Amsterdam 1 day each. What do I need to see?

I need help making sure I see the most I can in the short amount of time I have. Please help.

Yaz answers:

As your time in each town is short, and you do always risk missing your boat, consider using the tours the cruise company offers. Certainly for London and Paris.

If your cruise lands in Amsterdam itself you could just walk through the town, take a tour through the canals, many companies start at Centraal Station, which is within walking distance of the quay most cruise ships tie up.
More info about Amsterdam can be found on this site: http://www.amsterdam.info/ But remember that one day is short, too short to do many things.

In case of Paris you likely also face a longish bus ride to get to the city, as it is not near the coast. That can be the case for London and Amsterdam too, but both do have ocean cruise ships come into the city.
London is just too big to get a good view on your own in just one day.

Donald asks…

What is your recommendation in Amsterdam?

My wife and I will be in Amsterdam for only 1 day as stop-over before leave for home. Maybe from 2PM to 4PM of next day in late next month.

What is the must-see items there? This is my wife’s first time to be there.

Thanks in advance.

Yaz answers:

If you only have one day, that is a shame! But, much can be seen if you plan it out well! If you have never been to Amsterdam before, go to the east side of the Centraal Train Station and go to the tourist booth! They have I Amsterdam city cards for 24/hour, 48/hour and 72/hour periods, these are good for free museum entry and city transport and other deals and coupons! This is worth getting if you wish to see at least 3 attractions in a day but does not cover the Anne Frank House! 1.) Either first go on a canal boat tour (on city card) or save it for the end of the day. 2.) Go to the Anne Frank House. 3.) Go to either the Rijksmuseum (on city card), Van Gough Museum (on city card) or both! 4.) Go to the Dutch Resistance Museum (on city card) or the Amsterdam Historisch Museum (on city card). 5.) Next, dinner at a brown cafe of your choice. 6.) In the evening go see the red light district (its safer to go in a group of at least 2 people) or go to a coffeshop and chill before turning in for the night! Even if you dont want to do anything just walk or bike, this city is the most unusual and amusing city that I have ever been to! There is something fun around every corner!

William asks…

Going to Amsterdam alone for a week, what should I do?

I’m going alone to Amsterdam over part of my Winter Break (Dec 12-20). I am 25, male, and will have about $1,500 with me which is strictly spending money. My flight and hotel and already paid for. I;m staying about 15 min walking distance from the Vondelpark and I am about 15 or so minutes tram ride from the city center.

What kinds of things should I do there? Will I be able to meet other travelers to hang out with for a night or two or are most people keeping to themselves? I plan to smoke a ton there but I don’t want that to be the primary focus of my trip, I’d like to at least tell my family I did other stuff.

What kinds of activities are there in Dec., what is worth seeing/not worth seeing? Also, I thought about making a day trip to Brussels or Antwerp, is that in my budget?

What about safety, etc? Am I going to be robbed walking back to my hotel late at night?

Yaz answers:

Http://www.amsterdam.info/ has a ton of information. I can recommend you some museums but if you don’t give a shit about art that would be wasted.

Http://www.nshispeed.nl/en is the site for train tickets to Antwerp and Brussels. The earlier you buy the cheaper they will be.

Foreigners are inclined to overdo the weed, therefore I’d advice you not to carry all your money with you at all times. There’s street crime like in any other big city. Even though the center is patrolled quite heavily a lonely tourist that can hardly walk is easy pickings so perhaps you should take a taxi back.

Nancy asks…

What is there to do in Brussels, Belgium…what are the big attractions?

My wife and two sons (18,17yoa) are going for nearly two weeks and staying with my cousin. We’ve got day trips planned to Normandy, France (overnight at a B &B) and a train trip to London (1 over night stay) from Brussels. However, the bulk of our trip is in Brussels, what is there to do?

Thinking of going to Bastone or into Germany but where would be good? I see Ted Nugent is playing in Amsterdam while we’re over there….we’re big Motor City Madman Fans.

Yaz answers:

Check out the resolved questions about interesting things to see & do in Belgium & Brussels in particular, in this section – luckily there aren’t that many questions for Belgium – you’ll find everything from sights & sounds, sites, food & drinks.

Enjoy your trip. No time to get bored in Brussels as there is too much to see especially architectural wise, medieval parts of downtown, galeries, main square and surrounding cobbled alleys (Ilôt Sacré),
Sablon, Palais de Justice & antique shops, Sunday open Flea Market (Rue Haute)Royal Palace, musea, restaurants, cafés, etc…
Let’s not forget our Manneken Pis & his little sister Jeanneke Pis..

Hope this helps.

James asks…

What is the cheapest way to get to Europe, Amsterdam in particular, in August?

Ok i wish to travel to Amsterdam in August and I am pretty flexible on the dates. Most of the travel sites that search multiple airlines have the lowest price around 1000$. Seeing as I would be flying out of a Major international airport Miami and into another major Hub i feel like there may be a cheaper way. Can I still go to the airport without a ticket and say I am gonna be here all day and if something opens up I will pay xxx amount for 1 way ticket? Courier ? Anyone know a cheap carrier or cheaper way to travel there? I am very flexiable.

Yaz answers:

For MIA-AMS, try http://www.martinairusa.com as well as consolidators and specials http://www.bookingbuddy.com and http://www.cheapflights.com/flights-to-schiphol/miami-intl/

Martinair shows some late Aug. R/t for $974 total. These are nonstop flights to/from Amsterdam.
