During a tour through the city centre you may suddenly find yourself standing in the middle of Chinatown. Behind the Chinese gates sample the atmosphere of Asian restaurants, groceries and supermarkets, as well as acupuncturists and furniture stores. A mix of Chinese, Japanese and Indonesian cultures. Stroll through the symbolic entry gate to Wagenstraat (beside the Bijenkorf) and seek out those typical Chinese shops, specialities and exotic products. The area stretches from the Amsterdamse Veerkade, the Wagenstraat to Gedempte Burgwal.
