    I've only seen Belgium from the windows of a high speed train traveling back and forth from Paris to Amsterdam and from the inside of the Brussels airport. From what I could see of the countryside it looked lovely and I intend to return and explore Belgium some day.

    Great country to visit. Nice people that speak 3-4 languages and are helpful when asked. Great food and beer. Repeat: GREAT food and beer. Has a rich history with something for every taste. A dense, but very busy network of roads, great connections by train local and international, very good public transport in most cities.

    Belgium is a country that is often forgotten falling in between more popular destinations in France, Germany, Holland, and the United Kingdom. However, it may not be as well known, but there is still plenty worth visiting. The old Flemish trading cities of Antwerp, Ghent, and Brugge have beautiful and charming main plazas, and plenty of architecture to show the history of the northern renaissance. Belgian Beer may be the best beer in the world, and for good reason Belgian chocolate is considered world class.

    I visited Belgium once a week for about 3 years in my career as an investment banker. I never expected to love it and was constantly amazed by what it had to offer.

    Quite nice people here, very friendly and open minded! It's a blessing that I can speak French, but it's also a nuisance because I had learnt it at school and my sister wasn't at all conversant in it so I ended up being a bit of an interpreter for her and her husband, her children attended a French speaking school, as opposed to a Flemish speaking one, and children being more receptive to learning languages they had little difficulty in adjusting to living in Boiforts, one of the French speaking parts of Brussels.

    I'm embarrassed to say that I really really really like their chocolates. I mean really like their chocolates. And more embarrassed to say that I actually asked a person whether they spoke belgian.

    Belgian is not a language.

Description

Although Belgium counts chocolate and beer as its culinary gifts to the world, Belgium is perhaps most famous for its, well, blandness. A comfortable and safe country with just the right amount of outdoor pursuits, medieval towns and manicured countryside, Belgium wears a touch of leather and lace underneath its librarian exterior. As one of the most liberal governments in the world, Belgium was ... read more
the first to legalize euthanasia and the second (after neighboring Netherlands) to legalize gay marriage. Then, there's their soul-searching quest for identity, thanks to its cultural split between Wallonia (the mostly French half) and Flanders (the northern Dutch-speaking half). While Antwerp and Brussels are both cosmopolitan cities (Brussels is the de facto capital of the EU), escape instead to Belgium's smaller towns -- slow down the pace in Ghent or stroll through medieval Bruges (all four cities are in the northern Flanders). Wherever you go in Belgium, dining is a highlight. Restaurants serve famous Belgian fries and mussels, and you could sample a different beer every day for three months (Belgium has over 100 breweries, many of which started in medieval abbeys and monasteries).
