Chinatown Amsterdam:

From the good people at Flavours of Singapore:

“This year at the Asian Food Festival stand, we will be presenting a touch of the multi ethnic culture from Singapore. Taste our Golden net bread with the delicious stewed beef topped with our twisted vegetables pickles and for desserts our Singapore kuihs.

Flavours Of Singapore is the host of the first authentic Singapore Cooking Workshop in The Netherlands.

How to get to Asian Food Festival in Nieuwmarkt, Amsterdam?

Pand met de klok aan de zuidzijde van de Nieuwmarkt
De Nieuwmarkt is een plein in het centrum van Amsterdam, tussen de Geldersekade en de Kloveniersburgwal. Het grenst in het noorden aan de Zeedijk en in het zuiden aan de Sint Antoniesbreestraat en vormt het middelpunt van de Nieuwmarktbuurt.

Centraal staat de monumentale Waag. Rondom het plein liggen monumentale panden, veel horecagelegenheden, een politiebureau, een supermarkt en het wooncomplex voor ouderen, De Flesseman.

De Nieuwmarkt grenst aan de Wallen en aan Chinatown. Omdat de Nieuwmarktbuurt, met name op de Zeedijk, veel Chinese inwoners en bedrijven kent, zijn de straatnaambordjes in de omgeving zowel in het Nederlands als in Chinese karakters uitgevoerd. (from wiki)

Verkeer en vervoer

Bij metrostation Nieuwmarkt stoppen de lijnen 51, 53 en 54.

If you are coming from outside Amsterdam and wish to take the tram from Central Station, take tram 51, 53, 54 and stop at tram line Nieuwmarkt. It is easy to find where the festival is because it is at a square (plein) beside the monument Waag.


Use the Park + Ride where you park your car for a a very low fee per day a few euros and get a free public transport ride. Please read (in english :

(Park + Ride in dutch:

Or park in neighbourhood outside the ring of Amsterdam because most of the time it is free and then take the tram.
