A friend living in Amsterdam recommended that we stay in this area, and it was really the best bit of Amsterdam we found, with plenty of canals and pretty buildings. Lots of bridges and bicycles too!

It is trendy, picturesque and has some of the best boutiques and restaurants in Amsterdam. There is a market there on the weekend with great produce, cheese and baked goods. Buy cheese, bread and have a feast on the edges of one of the many canals. Go back at night for a great meal in the cozy restaurants.

Lovely atmosphere all around, great architecture... even better with good weather. Go to Winkel 43 to some superb apple pie.

Well, we are familiar with the real Greenwich Village in NYC in the 60s. We went out of our way to visit this neighborhood based on the Trip Advisor review but it was not worth it to us.

Beautiful and quaint area. Lots of bars and restaurants. Lots of shops for unusual gifts. We ended up having dinner in a tapas bar, but there were many other types of restaurants to choose from. Definitely an area to explore.

This was one of the places we were waiting to go to. not for shopping but for enjoying a more relaxed and unique place in Amsterdam. overall it was a very nice stroll, and we went through some great and unique shops.

I could get used to this way of life, as people are relaxed and just enjoying life. Plenty of sun, riding bicycles and smoking weed.
