Amsterdam can be an expensive city, but with some insider knowledge you can spend a day in Amsterdam on a budget. We’ll show you some of the top things to do in Amsterdam on a budget and some things to do in Amsterdam for free.
As part of the Simyo Budget Challenge Week and “Enough Makes You Happy” (Genoeg Maakt Gelukkig) campaign, http://www.youtube.com/iamEverybobby (Robbert Munsters) and I decided to challenge ourselves to spend a full / fun day in Amsterdam on a budget. For less than €20 we managed to eat lunch on a roof terrace at the Amsterdam Public Library (OBA), watch some musical performances at the Amsterdam Central Station, eat stroopwafels, catch a free boat ride over the IJ and travel by tram.

We have been asked by Simyo.com if we’d make a film for their new campaign called
Enough makes you happy! That sounds fun! That is surely is! That means that we’ll be making a film about how you can have a fun day in Amsterdam on a budget. Here we go!
Enough makes you happy
Instead of an expensive taxi you can take public transport instead.
Instead of an expensive terrace with a nice view the same view but at the terrace of the Amsterdam public library.
Instead of an expensive concert at the Concertgebouw go to a concert at the Amsterdam central station.
Instead of an expensive boat cruise a free ride on one of the free ferries behind the Amsterdam central station.
Instead of an expensive syrup waffle from a tourist shop what about a delicious syrup waffle from one of the regular supermarkets.
Enough makes you happy!
Was that enough? Yes certainly
Did that make you happy? So happy.
So? Enough makes you happy!
Therefore this is what we could have spent and this is the amount with which we had enough.
Thanks Simyo for inviting us to take part in the budget challenge week.
So you see that you can determine for yourself how much is enough while still ensuring that you are happy.
Thanks for watching. Don’t forget to subscribe and leave us a comment to let us know what makes you happy (said poorly in Dutch)
He therefore asked that you leave a comment below letting us know how much makes you happy.
