The sub neighbourhood consists of nine side streets in central Amsterdam and the Canal is bordering on one side. It is a shopping precinct with big names making up the majority of the shops but you still have some smaller retailers. It did not have any great appeal to me but it was nice to meander around.

In the heart of Amsterdam the area is full of second division shops and other offers. Depends on what you like but for us it's worth the extra walk to the Jordaan area. But you have to do all of Amsterdam to make your mind up. Every area has its advantages and disadvantages.

Nine blocks in the middle of the canal district - fun, lots of people (both tourists and locals, unique small shops with very varied inventory, nice old houses and plenty of small cafés and restaurants to sit down and rest for a while.

Beautiful sceneries around and plenty of shops to choose from and enjoy. Though the kind of shopping experience you might expect are not found here. Nothing out of the ordinary.

These are just a few streets with some shops and cafes ... The real Jordan is more fun to walk through.

This is an excellent location to see a range of quirky and lovely places where modern and vintage blend seamlessly. Good shops, not crowded or commercial and the jewel in the drown is Episode the best second hand shop I have been into, and trust me, I have seen a few.
