Something different

Another part of the city to visit, which is a little different to the others. I was able to visit Fo Guang Shan temple here too.

Great place for food ,drink, people and getting the vibe of Amsterdam. Pop into any restaurant, café or bar to meet really genuine friendly locals. Not expensive.

We came here because it was close to the Red Light District. If you aren't a fan of Asian things don't come here. It is neat to walk around for abit though. Not my cup of tea, but others may enjoy.

The section of Amsterdam called Zeedijk is a very unique area. It is an area where ladies and girls congregate, live and work; it has been so for generations. My first time there was in 1952------ since then , many times ---- the people (players) always changing. You can set in a bar or at an outside table and everyone... More

no matter what your interests or curiosity, walking through the zeedijk is a must for the true amsterdam experience. I only wish I would have gone into one or more of the museums when i was there. A reason to go back

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
