What to pack for Belgium
Between the beer, waffles, fries and chocolate, no amount of walking will fend off the feeling of gluttony. Pack loose-fitting clothes so you can indulge in Belgium’s food without any discomfort.
A book or app dedicated to flowers
A country famed for its biennial Flower Carpet festival, Belgium is alive with floral colours at many times of the year. Take a book or download an app and you’ll quickly learn to differentiate varieties of begonias and poppies.
From the flower lined streets of Bruge, to the gorgeous fields of Flanders, you'll need a reliable pair of walking shoes for your trip to Belgium.
An open mind
Belgium is known for its progressive mindset and forward-thinking legal system, often praised for re-shaping outdated systems long before the rest of the world. Feel right at home here with an open mind.
Your credit card
The Belgian city of Antwerp has been dubbed the diamond capital of the world. Home to the second largest port in Europe, it is said that nearly half of the world’s diamonds shimmy through here. Pack your credit card if you care to splurge.
