Three worlds that describe this city best: bicycles, weed and gays. The presence of thousands of bicycles (make sure you rent one when you're there) helps make life much easier. Weed… well every tourist does that, not every local though. Gays - you're in the right place!


After going there I often feel like it's too gay. It’s not that there is a certain part of the city that’s gay - the entire city is actually that way (which can be quite different than other major cities). After a couple of days I did get used to that and it did feel how it's supposed to be in this world. That's the first place I ever kissed a guy in a central downtown area in the middle of the day and didn’t notice anybody staring at us. That's how it should be everywhere!


As for a night out, there is the Reguliers street as the main pink area, but you can go to any bar and you'll meet gay guys - they are everywhere! Locals don't care much about that street, you'll meet mostly fellow tourists. Reguliers is just good for a couple of bars where young guys go (keep in mind most people who drink in the street are older) also there is club NYX. However this street is holds day and night street parties during pride, which is a must! Dancing and drinking in the middle of the day in the street packed with hot, equally wasted guys was a complete blast!


Keep in mind Amsterdam night life is more about parties than clubs, which is very different from other cities. In the same location one day can be a circuit party, the next day concert for classical music.

It was Saturday night and I was planing to go to bed (which never happens), then my roommate came to my room and said, “we're going out!’. I generally hate surprises, but this was one I didn't mind fo...

Finally - Amsterdam has a gay night club - YOLO! I know it sounds weird - such a gay friendly city and one club only. That is a really sad part of this city’s night life. Every tourist here expect to...

Traveling from pride to pride made me very proud pride critic. Does it make any sense? Well, for me it does!

Amsterdam canal pride is pretty unique - no cars, no trucks, no marching people - only boats...

There’s nothing good happening on Sunday night in the city, so TRUT is always the best option. I’ve been coming to TRUT for a few years and I’ve always had a good time!

This is the only absolutely non-...

The best slogan ever! Right? The super inclusive and friendly festival. Or isn’t it gay? Who cares?!

I’ve been hearing for years about this super colorful gay (?) festival and I’ve been curious to lear...

Probably the only party I've been to where the floor gets slippery because of the gallons of sweat pouring down the naked bodies. That might sound sexy for some , but not for me!

I've been to at least a dozen cities during their rainbow prides; therefore, naturally I needed to see the most unique pride parade of all - the canal pride in Amsterdam. Let me just say this - it is...
