    Don't only go to Brussels

    When visiting Belgium, don't only stop by Brussels. Flanders and Wallonie has so much to offer! Make sure to grab the Use-it map, it's amazing! Also, visit the European Parliament. It's free, interactive, and really, really informative/interesting! Plus, it's free.

    Half love half hate

    The only city made me so mad and so in love with. I was cheated hundreds of euros and wet by the heavy rain here, I was also met with so many fantastic museums and chocolate and waffle and one of my friends who lend me emergent money here.

    Insider Tip:Be careful! If someone asks you to dismantle money for him to park the car, you can just step up and punch him on the face. He is a cheater.

    Brussels, the city of many

    Go walk around the city. Do not take the metro, it is very small. Check out not only the old city centre, but the area with the EU buildings as well.

    Insider Tip:Go up the parking lot.

    Great food, very artsy and beautiful city, not too touristy, not too much to do in comparison to other cities, but a nice city to walk around and eat.

    Insider Tip:If travelling alone and don't want to eat in a restaurant, just stick to eating waffles, fries, and kebap stores. You will not be disappointed.

    This city was quite ugly to me. I know the locals like it, but I sure didn't! I ran out of things to do very quickly. You can easily see all there is to see in a day.
