Amsterdam + Brussels?

Jump to last reply

Three of us plan a trip near the end of September to Amsterdam. We'll have 10 days, so we thought it made sense to add on some days in Belgium. So the questions:

How many days in Amsterdam? Road trip to The Hague?
Where in Belgium? Is Brussels a good place to camp, with day trips? And the day trips to where -- Antwerp, Brugge, Gent? Or would it be more charming to stay in one of those towns with a day trip to Brussels?

We are gay, so don't know if the nightlife would be more exciting in Brussels. Also, we tend to prefer the bustle of a city to the peace of a sleepier town. Like to shop, good restaurants, museums.

Also . . . does it make sense to stay in Amtserdam for the two weekends we will be in town (arriving Friday, departing two Mondays later), and going to Belgium during the week, or split the trip in half?

Thanks very much for any ideas.
