From canals to those quaint little coffee shops and beautiful, colorful pathways, Amsterdam is a mini-paradise. It is picturesque and it is definitely one of the most breath-taking places you will ever go to. The vibe won’t let you leave the city, even if you have to. Even though Amsterdam is expensive, but at The Lazy Tripper, we have a way around everything. Therefore, this mini travel Travel guide is going to help you visit Amsterdam under $100 and direct you to do as much as you can take in.
HOW TO TRAVEL AMSTERDAM UNDER $100?
Amsterdam has a lot to offer and it is best covered in three days. However, this time we are guiding you in covering the city in one day under $100. Go either between April and May or September or November to get the best of weather and everything else.
To be honest, even hostels in Amsterdam are expensive and might be out of your budget. But, if you carefully surf around Hostel World, you might be able to find a hostel within $20. Look for hostels outside the city center and use public transport to get around.
As always, I recommend you Couchsurfing to save all of your accommodation money. Just go around the website, choosing a host with good reviews and ratings.
Transportation in Amsterdam
You can cover the city on foot, but the transportation network is widely spread out and affordable as well. A single tram or bus ticket will cost you around $3, but you can get a full-day pass for $8 and go around as much as you want.
You can also rent a bike for around $3 – $15, and both will be in your budget.
Food & Drinks
The food here isn’t much of a delight for foodies. But, finding cheap places to eat is extremely easy. You can find a cheap pizza, Indonesian food, Turkish Kebabs, and fries, etc. for only around $5. This means you will be able to cover your entire day’s food easily under $20. You can find the famous local food for this coast as well.
Amsterdam is the party city, so the nightlife and the easy drinks here are available. You will have to spend around $10 – $20 to get a good drink.
After all the accommodation, food and transportation, you might not have a lot of budget to visit so many of the paid sites. Hence, I recommend you book a free walking tour or instead rent a bike to go around and watch the city famous places from outside as much as you can.
Otherwise, day pay a visit to The Anne Frank House for $10 and visit the parks of Museumplein, Oosterpark, Vondelpark, Frankendael Park, and Sarphati Park, etc. You should also visit the local markets of Blomenmarkt, Noordermarkt, and Albery Cuyp Market.
Depending on what budget you have left, you can include in one more museum if you are a history buff. But believe me, when I say, you would have watched enough off Amsterdam within $100 and would be ready to move on to another city or crash for the night. Just follow this Amsterdam Travel guide
