Historical town of Brugge

The Squares - There are two main square, the Markt (where market is held every Wednesday) and the Burg closely.

Canal Ride - For 6.90 Euro you can go for a canal ride. The size of the boat is small, it can fit 15-20 people. You don't have to wait too long. Great view of the town and great way to chill after walking around the town. The following picture showed the boats used for the ride.

Brouwerij De Halve Maan (The Half Moon Brewery) tour - For 6.50 Euro you can join a guided tour round the brewery on beer making process. Brugse Zot (Bruges Lunatic) is one of the brew. You get a free beer at the end of the tour. At the top floor you will have very good view of the town. The factory also housed a restaurant on the ground floor.

"The only beer that is actually brewed and lagered in Brugge (Bruges), pale blond ale, crowned with a white head, blooms with a fruity pronounced aroma, hints of lemon, and hits the palate with a refreshing dryness, embellished by hints of spices and orange, balanced by an underlying faint malty sweetness. This is one of the lighter Pale golden ales with an alcohol content of 6 %. The beer finishes with a short, fruity taste that somewhat sticks to the palate".
