Netherlands – Amsterdam shopping

Amsterdam port

P.C. Hoofstraat

The street where all the fancy retailers (like Louis Vuitton and Chanel) have their boutiques. The real shopping action happens a mere bridge or two away, in the neighborhood called De Negen Straatjes (The Nine Streets).


Bloemenmarket (flower market) on the Singel canal, go to Reypenaer Proeflokaal, a tiny cheese shop.  taste some cheese samples and buy an excellent wedge or two of Dutch Gouda.
