Holland is generally considered a very safe travel destination
but it is worth paying attention in the larger cities to pick pockets.

Bicycle theft is a big problem within The Netherlands
and particularly in Amsterdam.

If you are approached with what seems like a bargain
to good to be true then it probably is.

Although Cannabis is decriminalized in Holland
it is a misconception that it is legal.

Smoking Cannabis in Public i.e. walking down the street
should be avoided and instead restricted to Cofeeshops.
