The city&#8217;s liberal attitude towards sex and prostitution is very similar to it&#8217;s stance on drugs &#8211; it&#8217;s tolerated, but only in designated places.</p> <p>The Red Light District just off the Damrak is one of those places. Filled with girls in windows, sex shops, sex shows, <a href="/contikipedia/articles/amsterdam-coffee-shops">coffee shops</a>, cafes and bars the area the area is a little sleazy but safe and a lot of fun with its mix of people and characters.</p> <p>Open and full of people 24 hours a day, the Red Light District in Amsterdam is an eye-opening and must see experience fro anyone who travels to the city.</p>
