Belgium Luxury Vacations

Michael asks…

Where shall I go on holiday?

Right. My girlfriend and I are looking to go on holiday in September. The plan is to buy some flights (from anywhere in the UK) soon and get accommodation last minute which seems to be the way to get best value. We’re in our late twenties/early thirties and are very open to most types of holiday. I think we’d be just as happy with a beach holiday or a city holiday – our last three holidays were Cornwall, Benalmadena and Marrakesh and we enjoyed them all equally. As far as budget goes, we’d like to keep costs down a bit but we’re not on a really tight budget. And as it’s our first holiday without my son for a little while we’d prefer somewhere that doesn’t charge a fortune if we want to go out for a night drinking!

I’ve just sent a list of flights from the UK for £100 or less in September to my girlfriend, but I thought I’d get you lovely people in yahoo answers involved. Out of the below locations – where should I go and why?


















Czech Republic













Players Club Tours answers:

Czech Republic. or Belgium

Why? Czech Nightlife is good there and has their own currency.

EasyJet flies to Prague while RyanAir flies to Brno. British Airways also flies to Prague from London (Heathrow)

Brussels, Belgium

Beautiful Brussels Belgium

Wherever else you go in Belgium, allow at least a little time for BRUSSELS, which is by any standard one of Europe’s premier cities. Certainly, don’t let its unjustified reputation as a dull, faceless centre of EU bureaucracy deter you: in postwar years, the city has become a thriving, cosmopolitan metropolis, with top-flight architecture and museums, not to mention a well-preserved late seventeenth-century centre, a superb restaurant scene and an energetic nightlife. Moreover, most of the key attractions are crowded into a centre that is small enough to be absorbed over a few long days, its boundaries largely defined by a ring of boulevards – the “petit ring”, or less colloquially, the “petite ceinture”.

First-time visitors to Brussels are often surprised by the raw vitality of the city centre. It isn’t neat and tidy, and many of the old tenement houses are shabby and ill-used, but there’s a buzz about the place that’s hard to resist. The city centre is itself divided into two main areas. The larger westerly portion comprises the Lower Town, fanning out from the marvellous Grand-Place, with its exquisite guildhouses and town hall, while up above to the east lies the much smaller Upper Town, home to the finest art collection in the country in the Musées Royaux des Beaux Arts.

Brussels is a wonderful place to eat: its gastronomic reputation rivals that of Paris, and though traditional meals in home-grown restaurants are rarely cheap, there is great-value food to be had in many of the bars. The bars themselves can be sumptuous, basic, traditional or fashionable.

If ever a city could claim split personality, it’s Brussels. French versus Flemish, historic versus hip, bizarre versus boring. Full of contrasts, contradictions and intrigue, this is a multicultural equation that goes much deeper than just red tape and Eurocrats. An historic heirloom is closer to the mark. And in an age where so much is already discovered, Belgium’s capital seduces as one of Western Europe’s unknowns.


Brussels is a city of fine food, café culture, Art Nouveau architecture and the surreal. Pull up a chair and join laissez-faire locals who value the city’s casual atmosphere. Watch money go down on swish Ave Louise or buy dried caterpillars just blocks away in Matonge, the capital’s African quarter. Some of the world’s most enduring images of surrealist art were created in the nondescript northern suburb of Jette. And the architecture ranges from monumental edifices such as the Grand Place to organic Art Nouveau façades and the EU’s real-life Gotham City.

Constant among all this is the quality of everyday life – the shopping’s great, the restaurants fab, the chocolate shops sublime and the pub scene extraordinary. For a long time Brussels didn’t go out of its way to impress, but its stint as Cultural Capital of Europe in 2000 saw the city dusted and polished in a flurry that brought renewed life to historic buildings and decaying streets. A new spirit, just short of cockiness, emerged, flaming outside interest and inner-city regeneration. Nearly a decade on, Brussels is looking better than ever.

The city’s specialist shops are another pleasure. Everyone knows about Belgian chocolates, but here in the capital there are also sprawling, open-air markets, contemporary art galleries, and establishments devoted to anything from comic books to costume jewellery. Belgium is such a small country, and the rail network so fast and efficient, that Brussels also makes the perfect base for a wide range of day-trips. An obvious target is the battlefield of Waterloo, one of the region’s most visited attractions.

The Magnificent Fairy Tale Continues~ July 27th, 28th & 29th

First Names Released January 1st

Ticket Info February 1st

Presale Starts April 7th

Tomorrowland is a Belgian outdoor dancing event (festival) organised every year in the Flemish town of Boom since 2005. The first names that showed up were Push (M.I.K.E.), Armin Van Buuren, Cor Fijneman, Yves Deruyter, Technoboy and Coone in that year.

The latest event was the seventh edition of the festival which was held between July 22nd and 24th, 2011, including Afrojack, Above & Beyond, Carl Cox, De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig, Fedde le Grand, Ferry Corsten, Sander van Doorn, Swedish House Mafia, Cosmic Gate, Avicii, Faithless, Tiësto, Laidback Luke, David Guetta and 2 Many DJ’s.

For a while now, Belgium’s colossal Tomorrowland has ranked high on the radar of ITMers. With glittering line-ups, first-class production, an immense (and immensely up-for-it) crowd and all-round epic-ness, it’s been coined the world’s ultimate dance music festival. A big claim, certainly, but Tomorrowland has built an army of acolytes around the world – among them a fair few inthemix regulars.

It might be easier to list the acts who didn’t play the festival in 2011 – and if you haven’t taken in the 13-minute after-movie, it’s time you did now. Next year’s weekender is sure to be even bigger, so for those of you planning a pilgrimage to the town of Boom, take note of some key dates.

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

Tomorrowland is set for 27, 28 and 29 July 2012, with the first line-up names revealed on 1 January 2012 (something to drag your sorry self out of bed for). So, who’s tipped for the monster bill? Pretty much everyone in dance music, we’d say, across a fleet of curated stages. Stay tuned.
