    Jordaan
    One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
    some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
    of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
    through this especially convivial warren of narrow
    streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
    quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
    working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
    better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
