Why locals love it

There is a neighborhood called 'Bos en Lommer' in the newer part of the West of Amsterdam. It is known for its multicultural atmosphere and people. The market on the main square is the reason for people from other parts of town to travel a bit west. Unlike markets as Albert Cuyp, this one is still doing what a market should do: Offer cheap things.

Why you should visit it

The center of Amsterdam is pretty, yes. And you should definitely spend a lot of time there. But area's like Bos en Lommer show you the real city. Behind the scenes. A lot of the Moroccan and Turkish people of Amsterdam live in this area and you will notice that on every street corner. On the market all the cultures are united.

Do not come to west amsterdam (unless you are muslim) we got an airbnb here for the next 3 days and we are pretty much not able to leave the apartment, i was almost jumped as i was walking to the market and the police pulled up and they ran, this was on the same block as the police station. I will never come back to this country.
