East Flanders Province travel guide

Historic Walking Areas · Castles · Sacred & Religious Sites
Although the province of East Flanders boasts a scenic countryside of rustic villages and dense woodlands, its most-visited attraction remains the medieval city of Ghent. The beating heart of the province, the city offers a vigorous cultural scene, rich architectural heritage, and some of Belgium's finest museums. Other notable places to visit include the lesser-known towns scattered along the banks of the river Schelde, including Sint-Niklaas, home to the largest market square in the country. Instead of spending your entire holiday in a single city, use Ghent as your base and spend time exploring the region's extensive network of sign-posted cycling routes; it's one of the longest such networks in Europe.

Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur travel guide

4.2
Landmarks · Art Museums · Sacred & Religious Sites
You'll feel the sun getting bigger and brighter the closer you get to Provence on the Mediterranean. When you glimpse your first red-tiled roof, you'll know you've entered the south, filled with vineyards, cypresses, and the crisp, inviting scent of lavender and rosemary. Since before the Roman Empire, Provence has been a vibrant community, partially due to its intensely bright sunlight--bathing the people in its radiance, as well as soaking sunflowers, olive groves, vineyards, and purple lavender fields with its warm rays. Breezy, star-filled nights set the mood for a romantic vacation highlighted by a moonlit stroll, a dramatic performance at the theater, or dynamic nightlife decked out in the height of fashion at the trendiest nightclubs.

Since Provence is a historical province, some people include the French Riviera as part of the region, because it shares the cultural and linguistic identity unique to Provence, while others view the area north of Cannes as separate from the region.

Joining the Mediterranean Sea, and flanked by the Rhône River and the Alps, this region captivated master artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh, and Cézanne. If included on an itinerary, it will do the same for you, with its tranquil gardens, mysterious caves, rustic vistas, Roman ruins, and enchanting old harbors. You can enjoy the finer things in life here, like searching for that special something at the area boutiques, visiting the workshop of a local artisan for authentic regional arts and crafts, and learning historical tidbits from a resident's perspective by antiquing in the country's best stores. Like its native Provençal inhabitants, you too can enjoy world-class people watching. If you're lucky, you'll catch a glimpse of a major celeb or two followed by the relentless paparazzi, all while sitting at an outdoor café overlooking any one of the magnificent Mediterranean marinas, one of the most quintessential things to do in the region.

More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.

Though its northeastern section forms part of the industrial West Midlands, Worcestershire still retains much of its peaceful rural feel. The region is known around the world for its sharp-tasting sauce, created in 1837 by two local chemists. Visitors can explore the county’s lush countryside and sleepy market towns. Walkers and nature lovers from around the globe revere the area’s rugged Malvern Hills, which feature numerous hiking trails and the region’s highest peak. The county’s only city is its capital, Worcester, noted for its imposing 12th-century cathedral, which inspired composer Edward Elgar to create some of his finest works.
