This is worth a visit, if not for just once. There are the beautiful canals and flower markets. However, the city is marred with drug addicts and associated crime, and there are streets that normal people just wouldn’t wish to enter. There is also the...More

Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Under 2 hours and the bus is about every 20 minutes It does stop at the Heineken brewery and they have discounted tickets on the hop on bus but the queues looked long so a timed entry may be the way forward
