Two weeks or so in Belgium and Netherlands

Jump to last reply

We are experienced independent travelers who usually travel with the idea that is better to see a few places well, than many poorly.

We are in the planning stages of a trip in late April or early May that will be limited to Belgium and Holland and have read many of the threads plus we have guides for each, Rough Guides. They cover small towns well, if they are linited on restaurants and hotels. There are many guides that concentrate on Amsterdam.

Are primary interests are art and museums, food, as much culture as one can ingest in a short period of time, amd walking around cities and some of the countryside. We are not shoppers and will stay at some combination of budget hotels, apartments, or b and b's, depending on price and location. We will not bike as a form of locomotion but could rent a car to see things in the countryside.

Right now, we plan on flying in Brussels and spending day and a half there. From there we want to see Bruges, Ypres, Antwerp and Ghent. In The Netherlands we want to use Amsterdam as a home base but make day trips to Delft, Haarlem, a dyke, and possibly Rotterdam and The Hague.

Among the suggestions we would appreciate is the best use of public transportation (and car, if ncessary to see the countryside) to see what we want to see.

We want to include a few leisurely days, as we ain't kids any more.

Can you suggest serious writers of Belgium and The Netherlands who have been translated in English?

We are planning on eating Indonesian food in Amsterdam and any other ethnic food you would suggest.

We are planning on flying home from Amsterdam all for a maximum of 16 days. Although we have been to Europe many times, we only spent time in Amsterdam at Schiphol.

Thank you in advance.
