From excellent value wine to what I am told is great make up and everything in between plus good cheap food. What more do you need

..most people seem to be drawn here for the very cheap food. We had coffee and an omelette (with bacon) at a cost of just 1.5 euro. The cakes did look very nice too. Even have some larger ones for take-out.

Its hard to imagine a similar place in the uk though I suppose that a much smaller version of IKEA will do. However, the real draw fr the Dutch is the cheap food. Pretty good for the price too.

I enjoyed shopping at Hema. You can find anything from household items, stationeries, accessories, clothing to food items at a relatively affordable price. Visitors could also enjoy breakfast/tea time treats for EUR 1-5. Clean toilets are readily available at Hema too. Great place for families.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
