The 9 Streets are very touristy, but contain unique shops and restaurants, and are a cool part of the city.

This place can get a bit crowded at times so pick your time but remember that nothing opens up until 10 am. The buildings are just great to take photos of.

It is a nice experience where you can combine shopping with having some food. Not being a fan of shopping as such, it is smoothing the pain when you get a nice bite or a drink in between finding the stuff to wear.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
