    Ghent & Bruges for Flanders, 1 day for each should be enough. The Durbuy-Malmedy-Houffalize triangle in Wallonia for nature & breweries. A week in total should be plenty to see everything you need in Belgium. Don't go to Brussels, just don't.

    Belgium is rated like bottom out of all the countries in Europe to visit. I live like 15 minutes from the Belgian border and I see no reason to ever go there.

        yeah, which is better in every single way. I can't even name 1 attraction in Belgium that is worth visiting.

            explain why your tourism numbers are absolutely miniscule compared to the Dutch numbers moronic frick. Nobody looks at a map of Europe, thinks of all the amazing sights to see and think: Fricking Brussels man, that's it.

    >no go zones?
    Charleroi, Liege, basically any city in Wallonie and some neighborhoods in Brussel although that will be obvious

    >tourist traps?
    What tourists lol?

    >underrated gems?
    Paira Daiza, it's a large and very open Zoo, you can e.g pet the Giraffes and the Penguins will walk next to the trail
    It's so large you can easily spend an entire day there
    There is also Lier, right next to Antwerp and it's literally a smaller version of Brugge except without the tourism

    >any other tips?

    >shops close 6pm, convience stores close between 7-8pm
    >Belgians make the Scandinavians look like extrovert, don't expect to talk to people
    >Brussels is 90% arabs and blacks
    >We have the best beer in the world
    >The country is so small you can actually visit multiple cities in a day

    I'm from Belgium so feel free to ask me specifics, while there is less to do than other European countries the quality of what we do have is very high

      Why is Liege a no go zone? Was thinking of spending a night or two there in a few weeks.

        In actuallity Belgium is quite safe, Liege is one of the worst cities but it'll still be quite safe
        Full of pickpockets though

        Don't be afraid to go, Charleroi and some parts of Brussels are the only 'real' no go zones, just be aware it isn't as safe as the cities in Flanders

          Yeah, I was just going to use it as a hub to get around from for a couple days. Found a good looking metal pub there I hope to go meet some fellow metalgays at was the only reason I was going to stop there.

              Yep, that's it.

              Belgian here , Liège is fine , have nice thing to see , liege waffles are by far the best in the world ,the night life is great , the heights of the city are beautifull .

              Pairy Daiza indeed is great , you can also sleep there .

              Where's the best waffles there? Where else is good for night life in liege?

    It's not even a real country. Stick to Flanders and avoid Brussels.

    I've just been in Belgium, 2 days in Brussels and 1 day in Liège because I had to make a stopover there.
    >Brussels
    It is a mixed bag. I had a horrible bad impression on the pissing smell at Gare du Midi, but that impression was toned down due to a place party where they were offering Hoegaarden for 3 EUR. That was in a Sunday. At Monday I hanged around by the city to complete my book, but that car museum was opened. I went on it and it was really worth of it. Then I went to Atomium just after it was closed. I don't know if it is worth to enter on it (mainly because the city landscape is damn ugly), but seeing it live really surprised me positively. Oh, and I have also been in EU parliament, which is surprisingly ugly (also, I wasn't convinced for the reason why they have to be a parliament in Brussels and another one in Strasboug).
    Overall, without accounting for the museums, which I haven't been and I don't know if they are good or not, Brussels is well worth 2 days (maybe three if you make a day-trip to Leuven).

    >Liège
    It is plain shit. And it is worsen by the fact that they are reforming it for putting trams. I really thought that was for the fact that it was destroyed in WWII, but it wasn't. Heck, Aachen was destroyed and it is a very fine city.
