Bruge to Amsteram or the other way around?

we want to come from Manchester to Amsterdam, however I am thinking of surprising my BF with a surprise trip sandwiched in to Bruges. Given we will be flying from Manchester which one would you do first? can anyone advise me on the train from Bruge to Amsterdam or the other way around?

thanks

Probably better to fly to Brussels and out of Amsterdam (or the other way around)

How much days do you have? What airport will you be able to fly to and from in both the Netherlands and Belgium?

Don't think it really matters which way round you do it. Just do what you prefer. You can get cheap flights out of MAN to AMS or BRU and both have train station in the airport.

For trains https://www.b-europe.com/EN or NSinternational.nl are both official rail sites of the Belgian and Dutch rail networks.

From BRU there are direct trains to Brugge. From Brugge to Amsterdam you will need to change in Antwerp.

Edit - Thinking about it again I might do Brugge first simply because doing AMsterdam last it is easier to get to the airport for a flight back.

Brugge to BRU is 1h30.
