This airport is one of the nicest airports I have been in (and I have traveled quite a lot). I could spend a whole afternoon just playing around here. It has a place to go for a massage, fitness club or shower (this is my first stop after leaving the baggage area). After that you can shop (this is where I pick up presents before boarding. The chocolate is good and cheap) at bunch of world class shops and spend the rest at the onsite casino!!! If there is any cash left after that try one of their restaurants. Of course they have the usual car rental/taxi/train stuff and the info desk staff are very nice. I pick up a free map before hitting the money (ABN/AMRO) exchange place for the cheapest rates around. Overall a good start/end to a good vacation. Remember relax and have a blast.

I agree...great airport. I usually use the ATM to get Euros, upon arrival, as the rate is better then changing cash or TC's (you'll find after you clear costoms. As for transportation into town, just follow signs for the trains (or ask anyone...everyone speaks english in Holland). You buy your ticket at the ticket counter BEFORE you go down the esculater, then it's only around 20 minutes to Central Station...and you're in Paradise (party in Amsterdam, then off to the FKK clubs in Germany...doesn't get much better).
