Our original itinerary did not feature Belgium. However, we ended up there due to strong recommendations from our London cousins and we were thankful indeed. The 3 hours train ride from Amsterdam was well worth it.
Apart from being a picturesque little medieval town surrounded by canals, it had original flemish architecture to offer. Colourful narrow alleyways with an array of houses and UNESCO heritage-listed big market square filled this town.
As many have witnessed to-date, the view from Rozenhoedkaai was the most stunning.
We also could not have left without some yummy Belgium chocolates and hesitantly paid tourist prices for it!
