22 TRAVEL AMSTERDAM'S COFFEESHOPS TGN's guide to the 3 best coffeeshops in Europe's cannabis capital 5 1 GREENHOUSE CENTRUM Run by the Greenhouse Seeds crew, this outlet boasts some of the very best strains. Sourcing the highest quality genetics from around the world, their grass really is a cut above the rest, perhaps the finest Amsterdam has to offer. 2 GREY AREA, OUDE LILIESTRAAT This tiny venue is always full to bursting, and the bud here is pretty much as good as it gets. This really is the unashamed focus of the whole operation. A variety of glass bongs and pipes are available for customer use. It's worth checking out. 3 CLUB MEDIA, GE- RARD DOUSTRAAT With a large emphasis on organic produce, Club Media have a broad selection of excellent bud and hashish, all at remarkably reasonable prices. Quiet, spacious and comfortably furnished, drinks are also heaper here than in the centre of town. CLUBBING Their are huge dams preventing Amsterdam from flooding, which provides the city with its name, Amsterdam sits two meters above sea level, with a flat surface making it ideal for bikers. There is more bicycles than cars in the city structured to incorporate bicycles in everyday life, from bike lanes to bike parks to children's bikes and bike racks on cars, buses and trains, BIKING For culture lovers Amsterdam has over 50 museums to choose from including the worldly renowned Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House, Riksmuseum and Stedelijk Museum. Other museums in Amsterdam include the Heineken museum, the National Mari- time Museum and the Jewish Museum all of which provide insights into Dutch culture and tradition as well as exhibit some of the most acclaimed and famous art pieces and designs in the world. MUSEUMS RED LIGHT DISTRICT In most capital cities, prostitution is considered taboo. The Red Light District is a collection of small pedestrian roads running through the center of the city where both female and male pros- titutes display their sexy bodies behind glass windows in houses facing the public streets below. This unique experience will have you either shocked and disgusted at the proximity of the 'district' or have you wet your pants before you can say 'abracadabra'. COFFEESHOP CULTURE Coffeeshop smoking culture is yet another example of turning taboos into its legitimate culture... Being among the few cities in the world that place no restriction on the smoking of cannabis, Amsterdam boasts over 200 coffeeshops spread out around the city where anyone (over the age of 18) can enjoy a cheeky spliff. Cannabis is safely and legally grown in greenhouses throughout the Netherlands under strict regulations.
