It's fab, went with three other ladies, I was gonna put girls then and remembered my age lol....we saw no trouble, no drugs, smelt some though, went to the red light district for a look, didn't find any of it scary, great shopping, great food, lots of bikes and trams, and had a cruise round the canals.
Great city - love it! Relaxed atmosphere, excellent museums, super food (especially Indonesian and African), lovely people, excellent bars, plenty to do & see. The Red Light District is a tourist area these days, so the only real danger is getting ripped off in a bar. Just exercise the same common sense as you would in any British city and you'll be fine. Enjoy!
