My husband and I are planning a trip to Belgium and he told me that since he has already been there, I have to choose the location. I am undecided between Brussels and Ghent. Which would be better for someone who is visiting for the first time?
Both are beautiful cities but of the two - Ghent is more focused on historical tourism whereas Brussels is more about the food and cultural experiences. So it depends on what you would rather enjoy. If you want to see and experience the history of Belgium, go with Ghent.
