      Brugge, Ghent or Brussels?

      Belgium Jan 12, 2017 at 5:01 PM

      We will be visiting Amsterdam Nov 25 till Dec 3. That is 8 nights. I think 4 nights in Amsterdam will do and thinking of doing the other 4 in Belgium since it's easy to get to by train. Am interested in Brugge. But perhaps just 2 nights there? Any other place in Belgium? Ghent or Brussels?

      Would they all be too similar (canals and more canals)? Really need your input..

      Tq, Mel
