Amsterdam is a great city to explore on foot because a lot of points of interest are in walking distance of each other.
This is also true for shopping, where luxury malls with exclusive boutiques are next to busy shopping streets with everyone's favorite chains.
The city's markets, particularly the Bloemenmarkt, offer the best prices and selection for souvenirs.
Some of the smaller side streets along the canal belt have great shops with unique items, interspersed with cafes, making for a relaxed day of shopping.
