Amsterdam - Post Report Question and Answers
What are the particular advantages of living in this city?
The culture here is much different then we expected. The Dutch (on the street, in the service industry, retail, etc.) tend to be private and very direct people, which could be mistaken for rudeness, but this is really not their intention - they tend to warm over time. Living in Amsterdam gives you the opportunity to travel to many other great European countries by car, train or plane. While in-country, the opportunities are endless for eating out, visiting museums, music venues and taking canal rides. You will find that most of your money will be spent on travel, groceries, and eating out. - Oct 2014
Beautiful and many parks/green areas; amazing historical buildings/museums; easy travel by plane/train/car to all of Europe; well organized, safe and clean; easy to communicate since almost all Dutch speak English. - Jun 2014
