Amsterdam is one of the most electric cities in the world, and although I have travelled to Holland twice in my life there are a few things that I didn’t do/see that I regret. Here is my list of 10 things I regret not seeing in Amsterdam.
1. Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam
Hortus Botanicus is one of the oldesr botanical gardens in existence today with a beautiful hexagonal pavillion.
2. Jordaan District
3. De Pijp
De Pijp is the home for one of Amsterdam’s famous street Market, The Albert Cuyp. De Pijp is full of 19th Century Architecture and is located only 1 mile south of the city centre.
The Skybar is not only is a hotel rooftop bar but it has the best view in the while of Amsterdam. The bar serves small bites to eat and full meals. And a large variety of alcohol.
5. Floating flower market
Bloemenmarkt is the only floating market in the world, basically flowers are sold from stalls on house boats.
6. Picnic in vondelpark
Vondelpark is situated near Rijksmuseum which is near central Amsterdam, and is filled with open air museums, ponds and playgrounds. I visited Vondelpark the last time I visited Amsterdam but it was winter and sitting in -2 degrees is not ideal.
7. Visit a beach

8. Plan a day trip to Zaanse Schans
9. The Hash, Marijuana and Hemp museum
The name of this museum kind of explains itself but the museum aims to teach people how helpful Hash, Marijuana and Hemp was in past civilization. There is also an indoor cannabis garden located in the museum.
10. Anne Frank House
The Anne Frank House is probably the most famous tourist attraction there is in Amsterdam. You will have the experience of seeing Anne Frank’s actual diary, a reconstruction of her bedroom and annex.
