please can you send me some photos of the bars/clubs in zaandam and what kind of music they play, hours they are open and typical age group in each place.

are there any to avoid, ive heard that it can be a bit unsavoury at times and the area is a little run down.

How big (in miles) is Zaandam, and are there any trains from Amsterdam late a t night to Zaandam.

    From end to end, Zaandam is about 5-6 kilometers (American? Must be, as almost nobody uses miles in Europe). For train timetables, look up ns.nl . The last train to Zaandam is at 1.06. For buses, you can look up www.9292ov.nl. Apparently, Connexxion has a "niteliner" bus which runs at night from Amsterdam to Zaandam.

    http://www.partyscene.nl does not come up with any Zaandam hotspots.
    I guess all Zaandammers just go to Amsterdam for clubbing.

    There is a dance cafe; see: http://www.thehappydays.nl/
    It's more a place for Rock 'n Roll etc.

    Next one is the clown, but expect this local bar to be fully Orange in the summer, due to the World Championship soccer.

    There are 34 more bars and a sexclub and that's about it.

    Zaandam is part of Zaanstad with 139.541 inhabitants living in 8 villages on an area of 81,77 square km.

    Last train from Amsterdam Centraal to Zaandam on a Saturday night departs at 1.06AM (1 hour after midnight).
