As we stayed near Centraal Station, we would frequently walk down the Damrak to head up the city. However it is a rather touristy place. On one side you have the canal where you have people handing out flyers for various boat cruises. The other...More

The Damrak is the main street you encounter after stepping out of the Central Station and finding your way to Amsterdam center. (The Dam Square e.g.). There is scarcely something of interest for the serious tourists, visiting Amsterdam for the shops, museums and architecture, except...More

This is one of the most happening place in Amsterdam naturally since this is the street that you will immediately see when you exit the Central Station. Lots of businesses catering to tourists e.g. restaurants, souvenir shops, money changer, convenience stores, etc. along the street....More

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
