Europe Trip- Netherlands | Dam Square and Red Light District

After stepping out from Gassan Diamonds Showroom, it was about 5.30pm and most of us were starved. We headed to have our dinner in pre-booked Chinese Restaurant at Chinatown. Amsterdam Chinatown was just near the bustling market square of Nieuwmarkt and the ever popular Red Light District which we went after having dinner.

After that, we went to Red Light District.There was crowded with passerby, perhaps tourists like us. At the front of these premises, prostitutes in different body sizes, body shapes and height showcasing themselves at the windows. Well, they were not naked as you thought. The glowing red lights along the streets and some windows were covered with curtains signifying that they had gotten a deal. Prostitution and soft drugs are legalized in Netherlands.

We came out from another end of the Red Light District. The night scenery was great, yet my camera did not manage to have some good shots.

 Before going back to hotel, we had dropped by Royal Palace and National Monument.

The Royal Palace itself looked spectacular from outside.
It opens for public during daytime with the entrance cost of 10 euro per person.
The night was perfectly ended with Heineken from Netherlands.
