Belgium has at long last managed to shake off its mousy image and can now offer tourists the chance to view some spectacular attractions that were not so accessible in the past. The Flemish city of Bruges is now one of Western Europe’s most-visited medieval city that has plenty of picturesque canals, market squares and old whitewashed almshouses. Antwerp is the diamond centre that has many designer boutiques, restaurants, antique shops, art galleries and chocolate outlets that are “neatly” tucked away in back streets and cobbled lanes. The capital Brussels is full of contrasts and contradictions in the way that the city is split between the French and the Flemish. Flanders in the North has the flattest topography of any location while Ghent is the attractive medieval canal city that has long been overlooked by the hoards of visitors.
