12:15 -- The Polish woman was nude under that body paint, eh? Polish women are usually quite stunning to behold, I have found. Slavic women can be quite stunning to look at, or ... quite the opposite. I have found that there is not much middle ground.

Great, thanks for the info.

The cheapest food to eat in a restaurant that was not only cheap good but also dutch because its from a dutch colony was surinam food and you can eat flat bread pizza rolls and ofcourse if you went to the nord of holland across the river and the main train station everything is much cheaper you can buy a rotisserie chicken for cheap. how can you not eat age gouda with a piece of dutch crunch this also so cheap.
Donovan Mcvay (10 days ago)
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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (17 days 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.

what is the point of travelling abroad and not enjoying yourself by spending some money?
David B (4 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.

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.

Okay thanks
Gabriel Traveler (4 months ago)
I forget now, but I think so. Often they are mixed dorms but sometimes they're separated between men and women.

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

AnkarothX (4 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.

Which are the most expensive countries?
Leslie Lewis-Walker (5 months ago)
Gabriel Traveler great, thanks
Gabriel Traveler (5 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

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?

DavidPeru4Fun (6 months ago)
Damn..that's expensive you could get like 10 bananas and a kg of apples here in Peru .
Roodborst Kalf (17 days 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.
rawr roar (6 months ago)
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.

Have you tried Moroccan and Lebanese food ?

Amsterdam is on my list. Great info 👍 BTW For €1 you’ll probably get 24 similar bananas in India :)
Yvonne Rahmes (7 months 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 (8 months 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 (8 months ago)
Great, thanks.
Green Croco (8 months 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.

Yes, everyone in the Netherlands also speaks English.
joe pesci (8 months 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 (9 months 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 (9 months 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.

in551125do (10 months ago)
If you're travelling on a budget don't stay in the centre... (fruit for a euro a piece...? that's a rip off...!!!) go to a local market (not the Albert Cuyp Market...!!) like Dappermarket or just buy your stuff in a supermarket (not AH to Go or something) ...btw I'm from Amsterdam.....
Adam G (10 months ago)
very expensive. 6 euros for a beer 5 years ago.

1 eureo a banana??. In Ecuador you can buy a dozen of the best bananas in the world for 1 euro.
Roodborst Kalf (17 days ago)
But they grow in your country. Best bananas you can have 3 or 4 for 1 euro in the Netherlands. Most of this is EU-taxes to protect former French and British colonies growing bananas. Second rate bananas in Netherlands are 1 euro for 1 kilo.
