Amsterdam is also popular for its Red Light District or De Wallen that fulfills the quest for exciting nightlife. Across the narrow alley of the canal are the lines of brothels, strip clubs, sex shops, and pubs. It lets tourists and locals enjoy the art of pornography, prostitution, and smoking joints in open honesty. This is also the place where Dutch drinks and locally sourced beers are popular. This part of the city combines bar and 'leisure' experiences without discrimination and criminalization.
