"From 2019 tourist taxes will be hiked to 7.0 percent, while the city will also look at ways to cut back on the number of hotel rooms."

Bodes well for the legal US states I would guess.

Enjoy

Jesus can this be true?


"The city center is uninhabitable for residents. There were 942 violations around the home on Leidseplein where he stayed in one night. The nighttime noise in the bedroom measured at 65 decibels, 40 decibels above the norm. Car horns sounded in front of the door an average of 155 times per night. People urinated, pooped, puked and even had sex on and around the home's porch. And this happens every night. There are no more tourist seasons because it is always busy, Zuurmond concluded."
