If you want to enjoy Amsterdam and if you are not into Zara, H&M etc. This is where you should go. It's a great neighbourhood for shopping and dining. Here you can find many local Boutiques. And there are a few good restaurants and bars. But beware of tourist traps. Don't enter a restaurant which sells pancakes or anything else "typically Dutch" in English.
