Cafe De Kletskop - nuff said. Full of atmosphere and lovely people. Excellent beer and an education into what Jeneveer is all about. Go - you won't regret it

This is one of the real old Amsterdam. Most local has their own place to hangout. Everybody knows everybody. The first Chinese came to this area so it became the chinatown of Amsterdam with a chinese temple. You will find all kind restaurants, off course the authentic chinese food. Need Azian stuff? this is the right address. "Marjo" is the... More

Enjoy a stroll around China town and take in a different part of Amsterdam. Plenty of eating places should you need to stop off for food and drink

Great place for people watching and relaxing along the canal. We went for breakfast but ordered the burger 'The Works' which is a hamburger, cheese, sautéed veggies, lettuce, tomatoe, topped with a fried egg on the best Ciabatta bread I've ever had! Go here, you won't regret it.

On my third day in Amsterdam, I had no itinerary and blistered feet from so much walking. I enjoyed just wandering through this area, looking inside shops and churches and window shopping. Great place to eat, shop, take pictures.

Zeedijk, was on our route during a city tour. This is a great area for cheap lunch / dinner and to explore the Chinese culture in Amsterdam.

This area is a 10min walk from central station with plenty of options to find a good restaurants. The Zeedijk street takes you towards the busy Chinatown area and eventually the more relaxed Nieuwmarkt square. Plenty of Asian restaurants to choose from and at Nieuwemarkt plenty cafés and terraces. A good place to unwind from the more touristy areas.

We rented a self-catering flat on the canal at the Central Station end. This location put much of Amsterdam in easy walking distance, easy both in time and in navigation. There were plenty of beaneries nearby, including not one but two Argentinian steak houses, which one might not expect in Chinatown. We shopped at nearby Nieuw Markt. On our first... More

Walking on the streets of Chinatown gives you immense pleasure of enjoying your vacation. This street is the liveliest street in Amsterdam. This street is fully equipped with bars, lounges and restaurants. It is the fine example of Dutch architecture. Name of the street and architecture of the buildings, perfectly complimenting with each other. In day time, this amazing street... More

As Amsterdam's very own Chinatown, this is one of my favourite streets in Amsterdam, if not my most favourite. It's colourful, very central, full of life. It has a nice variety of restaurants (mainly Asian, obviously) and shops (also very Asian). But not only Asian! There are Portuguese and Italian restaurants, gay bars, tattoos and trendy sneaker shops, etc... It... More
