Wondering what to do in Amsterdam on a budget? Join me, and I’ll show you some of the best places to see and top things to do in Amsterdam. All while on a budget! Amsterdam is a beautiful city, with so much to see and do, but I was able to accomplish a lot in two days.
I stayed in a hostel called StayOkay Amsterdam Vondelpark. It’s such a nice, clean hostel. I loved it. It was a bit expensive, but for Amsterdam, it is an average price. It’s very clean, centrally located, and safe. I use Hostelworld to book my hostels (Link below). They have the best deals and the most comprehensive information to decide on which hostel is best for you.
First, I take you to Museum Quarter, which is a beautiful area that has the famous I amsterdam sign. A lot of people like to take Insta pictures in front of this sign, so it is better to go early if you want a picture that doesn’t have a ton of people in it. It gets extremely crowded here during the day. This is a beautiful area with museums and a park with a lot of food vendors so you can relax. The Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum are here as well.
Next, I go on a canal tour, which was one of my favorite parts of the trip. I got a ticket from my hostel for €15. The tour is an hour long in an open boat. I prefer the open boat, but if it is raining, there are options to purchase a closed boat tour that is an hour and a half for €17. Either way a canal tour is a must do in Amsterdam.
On my second day, I rented a bike from my hostel. For a one day (return by 9PM) bike rental it cost €12. I almost didn’t rent the bike because it was raining a lot that day. I am so glad I did though. You HAVE to ride a bike around Amsterdam. If it is raining, buy a poncho. I looked ridiculous, but it literally saved me and made it fun while riding in the rain. I wish I would have done it my first day as well because it is just such an amazing experience. This city is made for riding a bike. It makes it so much easier to get around, and there’s just a special feeling you get while exploring this picturesque city by bike.
In the morning, I ride my bike around Vondelpark. I meet up with a friend, Corinna, then end my trip going to Foodhallen and the Jordaan District. Foodhallen is a really cool place that has TONS of food from all different parts of the world. If you’re a foodie, you have to go here. Jordaan is in the heart of Amsterdam’s Canal Ring. This is the spot to go to get your canal pictures for the Gram. The Anne Frank House is here as well. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go though.
Amsterdam is an amazing city. I hope you enjoy!

Hi, I am Roman! I am just starting out my journey with travel vlogging. I travel alone often and I love it! It is such an amazing experience. When I tell people I am traveling alone, they almost always say, “I could never do that. It’s too scary”. Understandably, the idea of traveling alone can be scary. I still feel scared every time, but I always end up having the time of my life. I want to inspire YOU to travel solo! My intention is to provide valuable information for any traveler, solo travel advice, budget tips and the most important places to see. Hopefully, entertaining you along the way as well! If you have feedback, I would really appreciate to hear it. Thanks for watching! Please subscribe and give it a thumbs up 🙂 Enjoy! x
