Amsterdam is a wonderful city to explore, and there is lots you can do even on a budget.


Head to Bakers & Roasters for breakfast, a trendy café that serves homemade cakes, coffee and hot dishes ($12). It’s in the south of the city, close to De Pijp, a great area to have a wander around after you finish eating.


After that, hop on a canal boat tour to see the city from its famous waterways ($15). A guide will talk you through the history as you glide past some of the best-known buildings in the city.


When you disembark, walk to Foodhallen for lunch. This traditional food market has been converted into a food hall where you will find stalls selling dishes from around the world. Most start at around $8, although you can spend more on certain items, such as oysters.


In the afternoon, go to Museumsplein, the museum district, where you can choose one of many venerated cultural institutions. Try the Rijksmuseum or the Van Gogh Museum if you want to see some art, or the Willet Holthuysen, the preserved residence of a wealthy family from the 17th century.


For dinner, eat at Sumo Sushi, where you can get all the Japanese food you can eat for $22 per person. Afterwards, take a stroll around the center of the city and stop in at a bar or two for a nightcap. Café de Ster is a good option.
