after you walked De Dam, enjoy a beer in one of Amsterdam's smallest and oldest pubs. Boss Louis and his daughter and personal take good care! Mostly visited by English and Australian people.

Dam square is very large with plenty to see, but it is extremely expensive and i would not like to visit here as a lone traveler as can feel quite uneasy with all the crowds

The Dam, a historical site right in the centre of Amsterdam. A place where you meet, see and gather.

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

You can get trams to central station, then catch a tram or even walk from there, everywhere is clearly marked and the number trams are listed on boards around central station. We found it very easy to get around.
