"Amsterdam Chinatown is also one of the sights of Amsterdam. It is located in the old town in the center of Amsterdam. To the southwest is Dam Square, the origin of the legendary Amsterdam. Due to its close proximity to the famous De Valen district, tourists can easily step into the Chinatown across the street when visiting the red light scene in De Valen; not to mention the food lovers, although the Chinese food here is almost Westernized, But for most tourists, Chinese food is one of the top food choices. In the Chinatown area, in addition to Chinese restaurants, there are Southeast Asian restaurants, grocery stores, and Asian supermarkets. Chinatown is relatively easy to distinguish, especially for people from big countries, the Chinese on the signboard is clear. The Chinatown area in the Netherlands is not large, mainly in Zeedijk and Geldersekade. Of course, the Chinatowns in European cities are generally not too large, and the commercial area is not as extensive as in North American metropolises such as New York and Los Angeles. Similarly, Chinese food is not as cost-effective as North America. Amsterdam’s Chinatown roughly originated in 1911 and is considered to be the earliest gathering place for Chinese in Europe. In 1911, the Revolution of 1911 occurred in China. It is estimated that this event also provided an opportunity for the Chinese to integrate into the world. The Dutch Republic among the population of the country was actually called the "United Republic of the Seven Provinces of Tehran". It existed from 1581 to 1795 AD and was destroyed by the French invasion in 1795. This period, known as the Dutch Golden Age in history, gave birth to the Dutch alias: Sea Coachman. During this period, in 1602, the first multinational company in history, the Dutch East India Company was established; in 1609, the first stock exchange in history, the Amsterdam Stock Exchange, was established. The Netherlands replaced Spain and Portugal to dominate the sea, and was later defeated by Britain to lose its hegemony. The Netherlands is a country with a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary democracy. In addition, the Netherlands is a constituent country. The Kingdom of the Netherlands is composed of four landen: the Netherlands (Nederland), Aruba (Aruba), Curaçao (Curaçao), and Sint Maarten (Sint Maarten). The capital of the Netherlands is Amsterdam, but the central government of the Netherlands is in The Hague. Today, the world claims to have four constituent countries: Britain, the Netherlands, France, and Denmark. In the actual sense, the constituent countries are two: Britain and the Netherlands. In the real world, there is always a difference between what is called and what is actually, such as democracy and republic. Until the end of selling dog meat, and the real return to the government and the government for the people, the world will come to great harmony. The true significance of Chinatown lies in the uniqueness of integration and the affirmation of diversity."
