In Amsterdam, Chinatown is located around the Zeedijk (in between the Nieuwmarkt and the Red Light District) There will be lots of fireworks all day, since the noise is said to chase away bad spirits. The area is known for Chinese and other international restaurants and shops. You can also find a real Buddhist temple (the Fo Guang Shan He Hua Temple) on the Zeedijk!
