We were just walking back from a canal ride tour to the train station and walked down this street and realized we must be in Chinatown given the large number of Asian restaurants and the quite pretty and unique temple. You can walk through the...More

The street has a small handful of Oriental restaurants, less than 20. You can walk the section in about 2 minutes. Very disappointing.

This is Amsterdam's version of Chinatown. We came up here very early in the morning so we strolled the empty streets. It was nice to look at the temples which was more of interest to me.

The China Town in Amsterdam is very small indeed, it's just about the same size as the one in Newcastle. There aren't many Chinese restaurants to choose from as well. However, the food is generally cheap (but good) and it is not as dirty as...More

Lots of eateries and little shops to be found here. Emphasis on chinese and asian kitchen. Great food to be had in some. Wonderful stroll ending at the Nieuwmarkt and bordering the Red Light District.

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
