The Red Light District in Amsterdam

Amsterdam Highlight Video

Speaking of highlight videos, like the one yesterday, here’s one from our Amsterdam photo walk! 🙂

Daily Photo – The Red Light District in Amsterdam

The red light district goes all day long. It's great people-watching, as you might expect. I think once you get over the discomfort of looking a woman in a window smiling at you, it can be interesting just to observe and not judge or anything. It's all legal here and heavily controlled so nothing fishy goes on and the women are kept safe. No photos of course (I didn't try), but you can take ones that are a bit far away. Fun Fact: If you see a BLUE light inside of one of the windows, then you're looking at a transvestite.

    Ha nothing fishy goes on.. sorry to burst your bubble but there are underage and illegal girls there. Plenty of drug dealing pimps too. Try a walk through it in the middle of November when there are no tourists. Completely different place.
