Day 1 :
Anyway, around 6:45 p.m, I finally arrived Amsterdam. The coach stopped right in front of Central Station. A stunning orange-brick-old building. This is their train station??? That was the first question that crossed to my mind when I saw it and the second question was, where is my hotel?
It is really big but I didn't take the picture of the whole building.
The direction that they (the hotel) gave me ; "From the Central Station, turn left and walk towards the big church and then turn left until you find us. " I then walked towards the big church and turn left. I kept walking and the next thing I knew I was in front of a sex toy shop. It's not funny,ok!
It was getting dark and I stood right in front of a sex toy shop with a few 'stoners' around. Creepy! So, yeah the first place I visited in Amsterdam was Red Light District and it was not even in my place-to-visit list,you know! OMG! I was so lost then I walked back to the big church and took a cab. The cab driver laughed at me because the hotel was so near and I only paid him 1 euro.heh. I told the receptionist the direction they gave me was confusing.
"From the big church, you turned left."
"No,no,no. When you turned left, were you facing the church or the central station?"
Fine, my fault. Luckily the hotel is sooooooooooo near to central station.
Night view from hotel room. It is a very nice,comfy hotel.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to travel alone to Amsterdam. For a single room with en suite bathroom, I only paid 99 euro for 3 nights. This is the cheapest single room that I could find in Amsterdam and the location is very strategic. 4 minutes walk to central station and it is a safe area. No worries. You won't see any stoners or sex toys shops here.heh, Night, journal. I'm going to sleep now.
I shall continue for Day 2 tomorrow morning because I'm so freaking tired now. Ye, awak, you can read it tomorrow,ok?
