Iamsterdam created a movie about how you can spend 1.000 Euros the best in Amsterdam. For me, for sure it starts with finding an accommodation via Airbnb, a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world. Myself, I’m also renting out my apartment or just a private room in Amsterdam. So far, I had great experiences by being a host and I’m already using Airbnb as a traveler for more then 4 years.
Besides, accommodation, I always have a backpack with a bottle of water with some snacks (fruits, chips, cookies, …) so I don’t need to buy each time I’m hungry or thirsty. The good part of booking an accommodation with a local is that you can make your own breakfast and either join them for a dinner or cook one time yourself to save costs.
