Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2014 - top 10 countries:
8.BELGIUM
"High emotions in Europe's underrated gem
Belgium has picturesque cities Bruges, Antwerp, Ghent, Brussels with great museums. The food and drink is a gustatory blast (think the world's best beer, chocolate and chips), the countryside flat and placid, the seaside surprisingly chic, while cultural treasures range from medieval masters to Tintin. Yet the words "Belgium" and "holiday" don't usually mix. From 2014, a huge influx of visitors is expected due to the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WWI , a festival of remembrance lasting until 2018 , which may change preconceptions. Belgo-newbies will find medieval towns where culture and gastronomy meet, with Gothic buildings, paintings by Breugel, Van Eyck and Magritte, canals and cool shops. And they?ll discover mellow meadows, where cows moo beside monuments, and battlefields and cemeteries that testify to the horrors of a war now shifting from living memory."
