Introduction
This is my family friendly look at European red light districts with a bias towards Amsterdam. There is no adult content, no pop-ups and is rated safe by Norton and others.
There is however several totally unique interactive maps with clickable hotspots linking to well over 1,000 of my own photos. The latest map links to nearly 100 virtual reality / 360° images of Amsterdam's main red light district which I took in March and May 2017. Select from thumbnails on left to begin or see below for more content.  
Booking hotels through one of my Booking.com links helps to maintain this site and gives me an incentive to keep going. Feel free to ask me questions using the contact link at the bottom. If you are here for research purposes don't forget to check out my history page.
Thanks for visiting,  
George.

Red Light District News (October 2017)
Amsterdam
With no changes for several months there's nothing new to report so lets consider "Amsterdam bashing" and whether it's justified or not. A tiny number of annoying and very vocal people on the internet continue to criticise everything in the RLD. They claim it's finished and nothing but an over crowded rip off. Well I just returned from my 114th trip in 25 years and can state with hand on heart NOTHING really changes. Sure, there's a few less windows and some crappy new shops but everything I enjoyed on my first trip I enjoy now. Crowds might be slightly bigger but they were always pretty big on a Saturday night for example and it's still easy to get round if you use common sense. Use the east side of OZV to rapidly move from one end to the other for example. Compared to many other cities (Paris, London etc) there are very few rip-off possibilities in Amsterdam. Once again just use common sense, don't expect 2001 prices in 2017 and you will be fine.
