Amsterdam’s new face

The stereotypical view of canals, bicycles, tulips, and a somewhat lenient lifestyle doesn’t do Amsterdam justice. This city has style. Enjoy its cutting-edge culture and little luxuries. The tacky image of yesteryear is on its way out.

The changing face of the Red Light District has opened up new possibilities in the centre. Hip cafes and gourmet restaurants are booming, diversifying the area for both locals and tourists alike. Luxury boutique hotels and shops are becoming prevalent across the whole city. Visit Jordaan’s contemporary galleries and mingle with the style-conscious artists and designers who live in the neighbourhood. Explore the many green spaces like the Vondelpark, or find some culture at the superb world-class museums, before heading over to trendy Amsterdam Noord for a bite to eat. Whilst it may have shaken off its seedier side, it doesn’t mean you can’t find a great bar or two to while away your evening. Why not book a flight to Amsterdam to see it for yourself?

City centre
NL-AMS-AREAS-CITYCENT-ISTOCK.

You can’t miss it: busy and exciting, whilst still hosting a heap of historic buildings, the city centre is everything it should be. It has Amsterdam’s answer to Oxford Street, Kalverstraat, for those who want to pierce the commercial heart of the city, but it’s also got a wonderful Neoclassical palace. Dam square is a good meeting point for touring the city’s smaller lanes and canals – too bad everyone else thinks so, too. Waterlooplein Square hosts a heap of sights at once: the Rembrandt House Museum, the Flea Market, and the Jewish Historical Museum.
