48 hours...48 hours is all I had to experience and make the most of Amsterdam and I must say I was pretty pleased with how much we got to visit, do and see in the city so now I want to pass that onto you if ever you are visiting Amsterdam.
1.) Get a tram ticket that suits you best - walking is healthy and all and Amsterdam is full of healthy people who cycle and cycle and cycle and there's nothing wrong with that but being unaware of the city's structure we found it easier and best to get the tram especially if we had to look at maps in between tram rides.
Pro: the tram station is right by the Central Station and you can get tram deals with I AMSTERDAM that lets you combine it with some trips too, so it's cheaper if you're after particular trips.
Con: you have to click in and out every time you get in and get out of the trams, which means you always have to have your ticket ready and you might have to wait a while if it's peak hours
Alternative: There are many 'Bike Hire' companies too, if you're more into cycling and don't want to wait for trams and be amongst crowd.
