We had planned to include a walk through Jordaans as part of our stay in Amsterdam becuase it sounded like an interesting area to visit. We did so on our last day in Amsterdam and were disappointed in what we saw. We moved on much sooner than we expected to see other parts of Amsterdam which were more interesting.

perhaps the best for pics... go at the end of the day when the sun is low , the light is great. interesting shops and markets to wonder upon. less crowded than the red light, central station area and much better pics.

We wandered around, window-shopping and people-watching. But it's basically just a neighborhood--not a "must-see" IMHO.

The Jordaan area is very cool, creative and has a good feel about it! Loved the graffiti and found some very lovely cafés and good food.

A nice quiet area with nice architecture and views. It would be a nice area to stay in if you don't want to be amongst the noisy centre. We stayed in the Plantage area which was also quiet and felt very safe.

Try the canal ride and prepare for clothes shopping there, because the Dutch have really good taste for trendy clothes.
