Amsterdam was the first capital city in the world to allow gay marriage which includes all rights and obligations for gay and lesbian couples.The Netherlands actually opened the doors to same sex marriage in 2001 and within 10 years it saw 15,000 same-sex couples marry legally.
In Amsterdam you can ride a minute down the road on your Dutch bicycle, grab an Indonesian curry, eat it while you’re waiting for a haircut in the Turkish barber and then head into town for a beer served to you by an Aussie. Because it is such a multicultural city, over 85% of Amsterdam residents can speak more than two languages – usually Dutch, English and sometimes even a third which is quite often German. If you can speak basic English you’ll have no problem communicating.
This one’s a little more broad but Dutch people in general are ginormous. Most men average at a height of 184cm while the average Dutch woman towers at 170cm.
In fact, Amsterdam has a far lower crime rate than most other popular European capital cities!
After staying in Amsterdam I would have to admit, it felt like one of the safest and welcoming places I’ve ever been to. Amsterdam residents are the second largest consumers of coffee in the world, consuming around 3.2 cups of coffee per person, per day.

In fact, over 60% of trips are made by bicycle in the inner city. It’s chaos but fun, healthy and environmentally friendly chaos.
