hey, i had to choose 1 city over the other due to limited time. I've been to both before. I dig the realness of Ghent. Love the city. Bruges is really pretty, but I found it difficult to find good food (without blowing the bank) in Bruges. Bruges had better bar/beer options. So Bruges it is. Now...anyone have any food suggestions for Bruges? a friend mention De Hobbit. Doesn't look overly cheap, either.
