Bruges & Ghent are the two beautiful cities which I surely recommend visiting from Brussels. These are the two cities (Bruges & Ghent) I had planned as I had very little time in Belgium. I had taken a bus tour with Buendia Tours (Phone +32471587908). The tour cost around AUD 72.73 and I booked it through the Viator website. The guide was very good – funny, knowledgeable, and sarcastic. The tour company itself with all the guides were very organised and excellent.
Bruges is a city in the northwest of Belgium and is the capital of West Flanders. It is a tourity city, well known for its cobbled streets and old medieval buildings. The buildings date back to 13th century. The distance between Brussels and Bruges is around 100 kilometres. There are frequent trains and buses between the two places. The train takes around 1 hour and costs about 20 Euros.
Ghent is a city in the Flemish region of Belgium. The city is spectacular with its architecture and history. The city has buildings dating back to 12th century. And the place also has a shop that sells the best waffles in Belgium (at least that’s what my guide said). It is around 60 kilometres from Brussels and 52 kilometres from Bruges.
