I haven't been to Amsterdam in a year or two but there are a couple of thing I'm
sure won't change. If you're going to be in AMS for a week or so the people who
sell Eurail used to also sell a transit pass for Amsterdam. For a couple of dollars
you get unlimited tram and bus use for a week. If I remember correctly it must be
purchased in the US There is a wonderful flea market on Monday mornings at Westerkerk
and a restaurant I would recommend is Bojo Indonesian food at reasonable prices.
Also if you've never been to AMS the canal boat trips are touristy but interesting.
