I had visit Amsterdam since last year July, because when i flight to nigeria, i need to transit at Amsterdam and wait for 12 hour. Usually i take train went out for photoshooting :)
You can buy a train ticket from schiphol airport to central is euro 7.40 ( 2 way ticket ) , it take around 20 minute to destination. Remember keep your ticket, because the train office will check your ticket, but just depend your luck. There is 2 level of train, usually i like to sit at top level for better scenery.
This is the outlook from central station, i think this is the best photo i take among few trip, is very hard to get a blue sky at amsterdam.
Just follow the people and walk straight , you will see all the building follow by my photo sequence. I found that there is a lots of Mcdonald at amsterdam, even 200m , you can see other Mcdonald again, is so funny :P
After that, you will saw a Royal Palace of Amsterdam on Dam square at the centre of amsterdam. But the palace is closing for renovation, too bad i had miss the chance to enter for visit.
There is a lots of canals long the way, i like the roof of the house, the screen is just so beautiful for me. Even me can walk 1 hour around the city. Of course there is some place which we need to take trams. This is my experience :P , sometime even i will walk lost during the 1st time i visit.
I still can remember the 1st time visit to Amsterdam. It was a cloudy morning, no much people is around the street, some citizen was jogging and cycling around. The feeling is so good and safe when walk alone.
Next i will intro some attraction place at the city of Amsterdam.
