  Chinatown, Amsterdam
by orlikins

I don't know how, considering all the reading up I did before coming to A'dam, but I had no idea there was a Chinatown in Amsterdam!!

Even the street signs are either in Chinese or bilingual Chinese-Dutch, which is cool.

Basically, if you want to eat Asian food or eat on a budget, get yourself over here.

However, do be careful with your safety, as it is cheek-by-jowl with the Red Light District and the general area does attract some shady characters. I had no problems there myself, but then again, I was accompanied by a local.

Address: Zeedijk
Directions: Near the Red Light District
