Holidays in Belgium
With its two distinct language groups of Dutch speaking Flanders and the French speaking Walloon’s, a holiday in Belgium is a delightful cultural mix just waiting to engage the low cost traveller looking for a bargain holiday.
Nowhere is this mix more evident than in the split-personality capital of Belgium, Brussels. Full of contrasts between the French and the Flemish influences, modern day Brussels is a delightful city with fantastic shopping, beautiful buildings and an extraordinary pub culture with literally hundreds of beers on tap. The atmosphere in Brussels is laid back with a fantastic café culture littered amongst the art-nouveau buildings which house some bargain hotels for the discerning traveller.
100 kilometres northwest of Brussels lies Bruges, the most popular tourist destination in Belgium. It is the capital and largest city in West Flanders. The beautiful Flemish medieval centre of Bruges is ringed by canals and is often referred to as the “Venice of the North”. Enjoy a holiday to Bruges’ cheap hotels and you will marvel at the beautiful architecture and the fantastic restaurants that line the medieval streets and squares. Hire a bicycle whilst in holiday in Bruges and explore this friendly city taking in the wonderful chocolate and sweet manufacturers that it is famous for. Why not consider Belgium for your 2013 holiday destination?
