7pm: The streets begin to wind down but don’t worry the party can keep on going with on the ESN afterparty boat festival with over 600 people!
Wake up slow, yesterday was a big day! Refuel for breakfast and take some free time this morning to explore the city. We can organise various city tours such as a Amsterdam walking tour, red light district or a ganja tour.
8pm: We’ll have an a popup power hour in Oosterpark before you can jump optional pub crawl tonight to hit the town on last time.
We should have well and truly excelled ourselves at partying dutch-style and we could possibly be broken.
9am: We’ll struggle our way through goodbyes over breakfast, but not before we’ve swapped Facebooks and photos and planned our next trip with Stoke Travel! If you have full day here still, we can organise optional tours to see the tulips, Bols Museum or the wind mills.
Amsterdam is the largest city and the capital of the Netherlands and its principal language is Dutch. It is so attractive to tourists because it has a historical atmosphere and a modern metropolitan society, the combination of which gives a friendly and relaxed environment in which to explore this beautiful city. Amsterdam is also filled with cute little buildings and streets, canals and squares which create a unique intimacy for tourists to enjoy.
Amsterdam’s main attractions, including its historic canals, the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum, Hermitage Amsterdam, Anne Frank House, Amsterdam Museum, its red-light district, and its many cannabis coffee shops draw more than 3 million international visitors annually.

What actually is King’s day?
It is a national holiday where all the Dutchies get drunk together to celebrate their King’s birthday. The King travels to a new city each year and plays games with everyone. This is so they can ultimately celebrate the dutchgoodness that we all love.
Every square in the town has big djs, bars and turns into a big fat dance party. There is also HUGE flea markets.
What do I wear?
Think like an orange, be an orange, definitely wear orange!
What’s the weather going to be like?
When in Holland always prepare for the worst and hope for the best!
Are there shuttles to the campsite/Amsterdam city centre?
These final details are still being finalised but the Dutchies are known for perfect public transport. Once these are finalised we will pop this information up.
