One Euro for a piece of fruit,so 1 euro for an appel and 1 euro for a banana so yeah you can make it as expensive as you want but that doesn,t say anything about real prices. The real price should be 1,50 for a kilo appels or a kilo bananas,25 euro for a hotelroom is normal outside Amsterdam and the train for 5 euro is also normal,don,t take a taxi because that's to expensive for you tourist. There is only one thing Gabriel did not mention and that is the price of marihuana!?he did not even showed you guys a coffeeshop from inside anyway as a Dutch guy I can tell you that a good joint would cost you 3 euro but don,t buy the rolled joint because many times there is not so much in it just buy a bag for 12 euro and you can roll them yourself.

Thanks for the info.

I am so envious. But I'm getting to old to travel like this anymore. What I wouldn't have given for something like YouTube 20 years ago.

Gabe have you ever to go see something you were exited about only to think," is that it?"
Scott Smith (16 days ago)
Gabriel Traveler I remember thinking this in a few National parks and LA, Miami. NYC was not disappointing. I've never left the USA unfortunately.

Yes, definitely...but not Amsterdam.

This was in the center of Amsterdam, everywhere you go where tourists comes they jack up the prices. If you go outside the tourist traps than the prices are much cheaper.

Hahaha the bag of salt is hilarious Two euro's for two pieces of fruit? Go to the supermarket next time.

Where did you get the tram ticket from?
Gabriel Traveler (2 months ago)
At the train station in Haarlem right before I got on the train.
David B (2 months ago)
If you're going to be in Amsterdam for a day or longer, be sure to get a tram pass otherwise known as an OV Chipkaart. Probably the best deal in town for unlimited travel. Yes, you can save money by buying food at supermarkets but you owe it to yourself to visit the Albert Cuypstraat street market Many food choices and the prices are quite reasonable.

Dude, why do you put on some fake 'partial' foreign accent while speaking English to a non-American/non-Canadian? Just because English isn't there first language, and they have an accent, doesn't mean you have to put on a fake accent that you "think" might match theirs. That doesn't make you more intelligible. They may have an accent but it doesn't mean that they are able to understand someone who speaks worse English than someone who has English as their first language. Dumbing yourself down doesn't help them understand you. If anything, you are doing them a disservice. I see enough people do this and it's embarrassing to watch them do this. You may not even realizing you're doing it at this point. And yes, I'm talking about when you were talking to that chick with the body paint.

You can go either way in Amsterdam.. really cheap or really expensive. Seems like you stayed in the most expensive part of Amsterdam (old south). Budget tip for other travelers, stay in a cheaper area like North or East. It’s also really upcoming with lots of cool bars, streets, shops. You can take a free ferry from the North to central and walk from there, Amsterdam is not that big. East is really well connected as is every place in Amsterdam. Also as in any big city stay away from the really tourist places as the food is often not the best but still expensive.. you can have a good value for money if you know where to go.. ofcourse we have tripadvisor for that and you can always ask since most Dutch people speak English very well 😉
Daley Jansen (7 months ago)
Also it annoys me that you got ripped of for the one euro banana. Most of those fruit and vegetable shops are really cheap often cheaper than supermarkets.. Well people scam tourists everywhere in the world I guess😐😒

I have a serious question. Is Amsterdam not really a good destination for families? I have the opportunity to take my kids on a school trip either here, or Sydney Australia. I'm worried about a few things in Amsterdam.
Gabriel Traveler (7 months ago)
Amsterdam is fine for families. You might not want to go to the Red Light district but otherwise Amsterdam is great, lots to see for everyone.

The Netherlands voted #1 in hate filled people towards Americans. Oddly Vietnam is currently has the most favorable opinion.
Roodborst Kalf (6 months ago)
Was not aware of this, but yes, that's because all Dutch mass media are owned by two Belgian concerns with very good relations to the Clinton faction within the US deep state. For years on a daily base they send out the message that all Democrats especially Obama and the Clintons are angels and saints and that all Republicans are evil monsters, while Trump of course is the devil himself. If you spread lies long enough people will start to believe in them.

Ahmed AbuFaris (10 months ago)
what is the point of travelling abroad and not enjoying yourself by spending some money?
David B (10 months ago)
If you are going to be in Amsterdam for a day or longer, definitely get an OV chipkaart tram pass. For about $7 a day you can ride the trams as much as you want! There is a small building across the street from the Centraal Station that sells them. Get familiar with the tram system, it's pretty easy and lets you cover a lot more ground.
barryot (10 months ago)
Gabriel, enjoy your travel videos! You never mentioned in this video whether or not there were women staying in your hostel room with you in Amsterdam.
barryot (10 months ago)
Okay thanks
Gabriel Traveler (10 months ago)
I forget now, but I think so. Often they are mixed dorms but sometimes they're separated between men and women.
asia lynn (10 months ago)
That's way too much of a hostile situation to be sleeping in a hostel with strangers by myself in a foreign country lol

If you want cheap eats in Amsterdam, go to Wok to Walk or Febo or the foodstall in Hema store.

AnkarothX (10 months ago)
Pro tip for the cheapest way to get around in the Netherlands public transport buy an anonymous public transport pass (ov-chipkaart) for 17 euro's it's valid in every kind of public transport in the Netherlands when you buy it there's a 10 euro's deposit already on the pass and you can put more money on it in every train station. It saves time getting a one way or return ticket and the travel rate is cheaper.

Leslie Lewis-Walker (11 months ago)
Gabriel Traveler great, thanks
Gabriel Traveler (11 months ago)
Thanks. Do you mean which countries to go to on a budget? Basically all of southern Asia: India, Nepal, southeast Asia, Indonesia, Philippines, etc. Also Latin America, most of Africa, eastern Europe. Here's a playlist of my "how expensive" videos for other cities and countries that will show more of the prices of things: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqo_gdfhvsY&list=PLLAwF-SG0S-4ZFoTYKTpuBmT015-iaCpO

Gabriel Traveler thank you so much. If on a budget, any suggestions? Ps, great real content!

Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand (so I hear, I haven't been there yet), Hong Kong (haven't been there either), United Kingdom, Ireland.

I’m wondering if you actually enjoyed yourself and feel like you enjoyed another culture? Your energies seemed to focus on cost cutting and eating non Dutch foods... You seemed to be there in body and not in Spirit. Where’s the joy?

"Whatever those guys are smoking... it smells interesting." I literally DIED! LOL!!! I'm so glad that I stumbled across your videos. I have been watching non-stop!

DavidPeru4Fun (1 year ago)
Damn..that's expensive you could get like 10 bananas and a kg of apples here in Peru .
Roodborst Kalf (6 months ago)
In the Netherlands including Amsterdam it's around 6 bananas for 1 euro (cheapest price) and around 2 euro for 1 kg of good apples, so Peru is 40/50% cheaper.

This is all cheap for Iceland, for example the pasta was 5 euros but in iceland it would be like triple the cost or more

Dude the Shawarma is about the only tasty food from the middle east in my opinion.. The beef or chicken are the best. I don't care for lamb meat texture. I go for it on a baguette verses pita because you get more food. Cheers.

Yvonne Rahmes (1 year ago)
Not very happy, you looked stressed out and worried, and hungry. You had not prepared what to show us. I do not mind spontaneous but I could get along as well as you and am a complete stranger to Amsterdam. I have found much better travel videos than this. I hope you do well, get better at this and become successful in all your goals. Thanks for trying, I appreciate that the most!

Anthony Kernich (1 year ago)
Note: that €5.20 cost for the train also includes a €1 cost for the ticket itself. If you purchase a reusable card for €7, you avoid this extra fee. But of course, you need to make 7 trips for it to pay for itself.
Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
Great, thanks.
Green Croco (1 year ago)
If you are looking for cheap and good food ,, you should search for a Turkish Kebap Shop.. Get a Doner Kebap Roll filled with real meat (chicken or beef), salad and some sauce plus a drink wouldn't cost you more as 5 €... I you are very hungry, get a portion of Frech fries with it.. :-) ))) or even very veeery hungry,, you can sit and have the Kebap plate with rice or fries and salad.. with a drink,, it may cost you not more as 10 - 11 Euros.

joe pesci (1 year ago)
I think it is way cheaper not to travel at all and also more respectful to the local people that they make tourism a living for their own citizens not a city invaded by thousands of cheap tourists that try not to leave a cent , then someone wonder why cities like Amsterdam hate tourists
Jeremiah Danielson (1 year ago)
Hey Gab. Just a suggestion. To be more familiarized to where you're at. Could you possibly show us on a map throughout your travels. Thanks man.
Jeremiah Danielson (1 year ago)
Yeah. Just mainly places that are not really well known. I'm a visual person and relate better with map reading. But you're doing a great job and I've enjoyed following you.
Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
Sometimes there's a map at the beginning of my videos showing where the place is located, is that what you mean?

Obviously, Gabriel is totally lost and has no idea where to go for good food or fun. The oddest thing is that he walks around with his big rucksack AFTER having been to his hostel.
