With its incredible architecture and unique blend of French and Flemish culture, Belgium is a country of abundant charm. They do things differently here, as you can tell from famed landmarks like the Manneken Pis statue and the bizarre Atomium. A trip here is a chance to explore the ancient streets of cities like Bruges and Antwerp, gorge yourself on wonderful waffles and fabulous fries and work your way through the country's spread of over 700 beers. Sounds good, right?

What To Pack?

A GPS enabled phone - It's easy to get lost in Belgian cities, particularly in the twisty streets of Bruges’s historic center. Pre-load a map on WIFI, then your phone's GPS will keep you right.

A camera - Belgium is almost unbelievably picturesque, and it's home to some of Europe's most incredible buildings. You could fill several SD cards in Bruges alone, so make sure you have some spares!

A waterproof coat - Belgium is notoriously rainy, so don't be surprised if you see a few showers, even in summer!

An adapter plug - Belgium uses European-style 2-pin plug sockets. The voltage is 230V, so you'll need a step-down transformer to use appliances that run on 110V.

Comfortable shoes - You'll clock up some serious miles wandering around Belgium's beautiful cities, and the last thing you want is a blister. Make sure your shoes are up to the job.
