Amsterdam Travel Guide
Internet Guide to Amsterdam by Steven Pemberton
Renting a bike is the best way to get around in Amsterdam. The city is not big and biking is good for you. Grab a bike at one of the MacBike places.
The public transport in Amsterdam is quite well organized and all operared by GVB. Taxis work like you would expect, but they’re quite expensive (count on € 15 for a 10 minute ride in the city, more at night). More local travel info you can find at the official tourist site.
