Reflecting the diversity of its population, the city encompasses many one-of-a-kind establishments featuring imported wares from Russia, Western Europe and the Far East.

Amsterdam might not rank up there with Milan or Paris when it comes to European magnets for shopaholics. But when it comes to stuff not available on the legal market elsewhere, A'dam is tops.

Need weed? No problem! Step into The Basement Coffeeshop in the Red Light District, or any other of Amsterdam's 250+ weed and hash dens and pick your poison from the menu.

Changing marijuana laws have not impacted the sale of marijuana to tourists, as they have in other cities in Holland.
