De Pijp, Amsterdam
Concierge.com's insider take:
The city's "Quartier Latin" of 19th-century buildings is populated by a mix of cultures, especially Moroccans and Turks, plus students, hipsters, hippies, and yuppies. It's packed with restaurants, both ethnic and trendy, and plenty of cafés. Watch it all pass by in one visit to the huge street market Albert Cuypmarkt (Mon. through Sat., 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.); or at night, the intimate square of Gerard Douplein is the center of De Pijp's café culture.
