An insider's guide to the special places to eat, sleep and shop in Amsterdam.
Amsterdam is famed for its pretty canals, world-class galleries and edgy night life, but, as with any major city, a new generation is busy establishing design studios, cafes, clothing stores and creative spaces - breathing new life into former industrial areas and quiet neighbourhood streets. Monique van den Heuvel's Amsterdam Style Guide is a refreshing alternative to traditional travel guides: shining a light on small businesses run by people who love what they do. Monique's favourite places to eat, sleep and shop, as well as insider tips from local business owners, will help you make the most of your visit. This Amsterdam is best travelled by bike or canal boat, at a pace that allows for plenty of diversions; whether that's lunch and a smoothie at a health-food cafe, shopping for vintage treasures with a latte in hand, or enjoying an evening cocktail by the water ... inspiration lies around every corner.
