What to Expect When Visiting Belgium
From the fairytale facades of Ghent, Belgiums ancient Flemish capital, to the meandering canals and hump-backed bridges of Bruges - the Venice of the North, you will find plenty to see and do on your travels. The network of pretty canals and rivers and close proximity of places to visit means you can tailor your cruise to take in as much or as little as you want. Visit the World War memorials at Ypres, spend time at sandy beaches and nature reserves and visit museums, monuments and markets on your travels around this small country with a big heart. Famous for its medieval architecture and quiet bohemian atmosphere, a cruise on the canals from Ghent is a great way to see Belgium.

Couldn't help wondering the same!
Our one day in Belgium was most memorable - seven hours spent in a traffic jam trying to get past Antwerp!
I did like Belgium. A lot.
However, I must also say this:
Bring an umbrella. It is pretty much the rainiest european country I have been to, although I am told that Ireland may be its match.
Here is a travel hint in Belgium.
The Dutch speaking people of Belgium speak Flemish, not Dutch, and there is no two ways about it.
