Mild, Mild West

Next month’s issue of Budget Travel magazine (old-school version) will be featuring an excellent short article on Amsterdam’s West neighborhoods by Maria Robertson-Textor. The city’s former industrial area has been undergoing a slow, but inexorable gentrification for the last decade and is now attracting even the lazy tourists who rarely see more than the city center (and the coffeeshops). If you venture to the wild west, check-out the Westgasfabriek culture complex and park; there’s always something interesting going on. And while you’re out west, look for the new book wall.
