Anyway, there are still lots of window girls working in these red-light areas, especially in De Wallen.
From lots of personal journeys through the area I can tell you that many of these girls look like Playboy Centerfolds from a distance and most of those still look hot as hell when you get a bit closer.
A bit annoying having queues of middle aged Chinese couples looking at you awe struck as you enter one of the window booths.
Known as 'De Wallen' (the quays) in Dutch, because the canals were once part of the city defenses (walls and moats).
Prostitution itself is limited to certain streets, mainly side streets and alleys, but the district is considered to include the canals, and some adjoining streets (such as Warmoesstraat and Zeedijk).
Price is usually a double comparing to having sex with just one girl.

If we look few years back, there were much more windows where prostitutes used to work.
Now days some of the windows have been turned into kiosks, shops, cafes etc.
The red light district is popular for both standard tourists and sex tourists alike, and sex shops, peep shows, strip clubs and countless prostitutes selling their wares behind red-lit glass windows abound.
Prostitution is legal in the Netherlands, just as it is in many other European countries and well regulated in Amsterdam, which arguably creates safer conditions for sex workers.
Transexual prostitutes are often from Brazil, Venezuela and other South American countries.
