For oversea visitors, this department store was just average. There were small shops around town to shop. You don't have to be there to do your shopping. However the building look spectacular!

It has all the main clothing brands under one roof. Opening times are extended, so it's easy to go there outside rush hours. They sell great home, living and kitchen accessories as well. Check the webpage for deals and discounts.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
