Brussels

— 5 nights

Capital of Europe

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Grand Place and Manneken Pis. Change things up with these side-trips from Brussels: Antwerpen-Centraal (in Antwerp) and Pairi Daiza (in Brugelette). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Atomium, make a trip to Belgian Comic Strip Center, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and contemplate the long history of Parc du Cinquantenaire.

For where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Brussels vacation maker site.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Brussels is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Gulf Standard Time (GST) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a -3 hour difference. Traveling from Dubai in August, expect Brussels to be colder, temps between 25°C and 14°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) so you can go by car to Bruges.

Bruges

— 4 nights

Venice of the North

The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Attractions like The Markt and Historic Centre of Brugge make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bruges: Ghent (Ghent City Center, Gravensteen, &more) and Menin Gate Memorial (in Ieper (Ypres)). There's much more to do: take in panoramic vistas at Belfry of Bruges, take an in-depth tour of Groeningemuseum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedrale Saint Sauveur de Bruges, and admire the landmark architecture of Stadhuis.

Plan my Bruges trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Drive from Brussels to Bruges in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in August, and nighttime lows around 15°C. You'll set off for home on the 14th (Sat).

A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
