TOP 50 REVIEWERon 18 July 2015
This 328-page book - the 9th (print) edition of March 2014 - is an interesting and readable guide to the Netherlands’ tourist capital of Amsterdam (The Hague is the actual capital city). This is a well-designed and presented guide, with useful maps. This is not a glossy guide with lots of colour pictures, but it is a well-designed and laid out guide, with colour used sparingly. It is intended to be a helpful guide to things to see and do, and not just a list of things to see and do.

It is broken down into four major sections:

Page 4 - Plan Your Trip:
This section is an introduction to Amsterdam, what to look out for (Amsterdam‘s Top 10), what you need to know in advance, and other touristy stuff.

Page 62 - Explore Amsterdam (“The Guide”):
P054: Neighbourhoods at a Glance (with an introductory map and with a fold-out map of the city inside the back-cover) followed by 10 sub-sections on the city’s various districts
P206: Day Trips from Amstedam
P222: Sleeping

Page 235 - Understand Amsterdam:
This section has articles on local culture - history, arts, architecture, etc.

Page 269 - Survival Guide:
A-Z Directory, transport, etc.
P281: Language
P289: Index

P298: Maps

excellent purchase, we stayed for 5 nights and 6 days,used the book lots esoecially for information on nice areas such as Plantage and Vondelpark and Jordaan area for lovely shops and restaurants. Great info on places of interest too and handy fold out map inside which was a lifeline! easy to get lost in all the tiny streets and along the canals!!! glad i purchased it

Arrived in Amsterdam yesterday and the guide has been invaluable. It's great for showing the variety of activites available, which you can then supplement with local info.

It's well set out and easy to use. The maps are detailed enough to be useful and show all the major sights. Recommended.

The book itself was useful but the pull out map had already been pulled out - and I did not notice until I it was too late to order a replacement. Check that the pull out map is there when you but this before it is too late.

The latest edition proved to be a very useful tool during a short break in Amsterdam, giving good advice and recommendations to excellent restaurants.

Great quality for a second hand book, map still inside. Hopefully it will come in handy when we are in Amsterdam.

A very useful 'first timer' guide that gave invaluable advice on what to do to maximise our three-day stay.
