Amsterdam Rs. 30,000 – Red Light District, Cheap Flights, Hostels, Food, Sim, Parties, Nightlife
Guys , today I am in Amsterdam
and I will be telling you
how much money do you need
to explore this city .
So this is my hostel accommodation
and I am sharing this with
3 swedish girls and two slovak guys
and all of them are out right now .
A day transport pass for 8 euros (Rs. 600)
is valid in buses, metros
and the famous trams .
If not getting a day pass
a single journey ticket costs 3.5 Euros or Rs. 240
You can get a day pass for any number of days together
because as the days increase, the day pass costs less.
And now lets talk about the place where you can get
Pizzas, green stuff
And Hot stuff at the same place.
Here I am at the centre of the red light district
surrounded by windows
and it is forbidden to click pictures of the ladies here.
The ladies here will try to call you by showing their palm
by which they mean 50 euros
which I'm guessing is to go inside that window.
By the way prostitution in Netherlands is legal and government controlled.
And this historic red light district is a popular tourist attraction in amsterdam
which is very safe and is always crowded with tourists.
Cannabis, weed and marijuana
are legal in Netherlands for personal use
and weed smoking cafes over here are know as coffee shops.
One of the most popular coffee shops here is THE BULL DOG.
Even my hostel had a special smoke up zone .
From weed cakes, weed candies
to weed merchandise or pre rolled joints
you can get everything here .
But legal does not mean healthy
and one cannot possess more than 5 grams of stuff.
As internet data is a necessity today
vodafone is the safest option that provides data roaming in entire europe.
And plans are available starting from 15 (Rs. 1200 ) euros
going up to 25 (Rs. 1800 ) , 35 (Rs. 2500) and a max of 50 (Rs. 3500 ) euros.
Now lets talk about groceries
Carrots for 150 rupees for a kilo and onions for 120 rupees a kilo
and a single cucumber for 70 rupees.
Alright guys I am at mcdonalds now and the cheapest burger here is
a chilly chicken burger for 110 rupees.
A starbucks frappuccino for 350 rupees
And a complete meal at KFC with wings and coleslaw for 700 rupees .
Sub of the day for 300 rupees.
Pizza slice for 280 rupees.
A single egg for 13 rupees.
1 litre milk for 100 rupees.
Fresh bread for 100 rupees.
Redbull for 110 rupees.
Ready to eat sandwich for 300 rupees.
A meal at an Indian restaurant for at least 1000 rupees.
But a small meal of chicken , potatoes and roti for 350 rupees.
As Amsterdam is best seen on a bicycle or a boat
I'll tell you their ticket prices as well.
A 90 minute boat ride for 1300 rupees.
A bicycle on rent for 1 day for 500 rupees.
Flight tickets to Amsterdam from either Delhi or Mumbai
can cost around 40,000 rupees during the season time .
And at the end of the season for around 37,000 rupees.
Commonly covered destinations with Amsterdam are paris and Brussels
Both of which are effectively connected through trains .
A high speed train ticket can cost around 40 to 80 euros
and to get the best deals on internal tickets in europe you can visit goeuro.com
Most of the seats in this train are empty and this is a 8 seat section which is completely empty
so I guess I am traveling like a king.
You can take free guided tours to explore the city
where local guides walk you around the city and you get to learn a lot.
They don't charge any fees but they do expect a tip at the end of the tour
lets say around 2, 3, or 5 euros . (150 to 350 Rs)
and and a lot of hostels and websites offer these services.
And now its time for some drinks
Most people who drink gin and tonic do not know that gin is actually a dutch drink
and this shop behind me offers gin tasting in the authentic style.
A small cup for 350 rupees.
The famous heineken beer at a supermarket with 1+1 discount
can cost 40 rupees per can .
And another poplar local beer Amstel for 50 rupees per can .
And preferably buy hard liquor from duty free
you'll save a lot o money.
Drinks at local bars can cost 10 times than at the supermarket.
most people prefer to do open parties
as social drinking is acceptable (in limits).
As a lot of people tend to fall into canals after getting drunk, there are free to use urinals on the street.
Now lets talk about nightlife.
Other than the famous bars and coffee shops in red light district
there is no problem for single guys to go in the city's main nightclubs
with an entry fees from 5 (Rs. 400)to 15 euros. Rs (1200)
Drinks inside can cost around 5 to 8 euros with no cover charge. (Rs. 375 to Rs. 600)
And most hostels have their own pubs or bars where a lot of young travellers get together .
Other than parties, drugs or the red light district
this historic city is extremely beautiful and is an open museum all together.
And to learn more about the past of this city
you can choose one of the very amazing museums here
And now I will be trying some Dutch food with these beautiful here .
A lot of people including me try to survive on street food
which isn't that cheap anyways
For example : this Dutch Haring
which is basically a semi processed fish
MAN : And dip it in the onions can cost 350 rupees.
Stroopwafel ,which is basically a syrup biscuit can cost around 150 rupees
Kibbeling , which is basically fried fish
a small plate will cost around 350 rupees
Even after having all this I managed my daily food budget in 700 rupees
because one of my daily meals was bread with ready to eat veggies from haldiram
which cost me 150 rupees per meal.
I stayed in Amsterdam for a total of six days
and I will be telling you my every single expenditure.
A hostel for six nights costed me 2000 rupees per night
Outside food + groceries + ready to eat meal was for 800 rupees a day .
Daily transport for six days cost me 6000 rupees.
Spent around 2000 rupees in a club and on drinks.
And combined tickets of the museums I visited cost me 6000 rupees.
And if we talk about Escobar stuff, I'm not into that !
As a tourist , 3 days is enough to see amsterdam
and if you tend to save a little money on food and accommodation like I did
and visit only 2 or 3 museums, you can spend around 3 or 4 days in 15000 rupees only
So my hostel booking was till today only
and I asked them if I could extend it by a day , their price was very high
55 euros. (Rs. 4000)
So I checked out of my hostel and I'm headed towards another hostel
its a little far from the city but is much cheaper for 25 euros.(Rs. 2000)
