I plan to visit both Paris and Amsterdam for the first time and I have actually booked my flight to Amsterdam (should have been more certain of plans before booking) the unfortunate high torrorism alert in France has made me pause for a second.
The plan originally was to spend two days in Amsterdam and 4 days in Paris but with my main concern about torrorism, would it be better to stay less in Paris or even just do a day trip to Paris or one night in Paris?
I am also concerned about the possibility of language barrier as I speak no Dutch or french. Which of the two countries mentioned can I get away with just English ?
In the way of things to do and see, which of the two countries mentioned has more things to do and see?
