The neighborhood Western Isles (Westelijke Eilanden) is like a village on the edge of the city centre. Fourhundred years ago it was Amsterdam’s first expansion. It’s a quiet neighborhood consisting of canals and reconverted warehouses. As Lonely Planet puts it: "The artistic and the creative soul of the city is concealed in the charming Western Islands. This small archipelago bathes in amazing quietness, only nudged from its slumber by bobbing houseboats and bikes rattling across the wooden bridges. Among the former grain, herring and tobacco warehouses, intrepid travellers will now find artists’ studios creating everything from film and music to painting and designer furniture".
