No.

Jordaan  




Jordaan is our NO. 1 because:
Picturesquely beautiful and surrounded by beautiful canals makes the Jodaan no.1

 
 
The Jordaan is possibly the most famous neighbourhood in the Netherlands. Akin to the reputation enjoyed by London’s Cockneys, this once working-class bastion was renowned for tight community bonds, radical politics and a love for drink and over-the-top sing-a-longs. Gentrification of decades past has attracted more galleries, restaurants, specialty shops and upwardly-mobile residents to its scenic streets but there’s undeniably still a distinct atmosphere to be enjoyed here.

The Jordaan: My Home Away from Home in Amsterdam
While in Amsterdam, I always rent a bike for the duration of my stay and lock it to a "staple" (as the bike hitching racks here are called) in front of my hotel.
