The Complete Travel Guide to Belgium


A Visual Tour of Belgium

Bringing you the very best of Belgium – strap in for the ride!



Knokke is the Hamptons of Belgium. And while it lacks the beautiful architecture and undeniable charm that the Hamptons offers, Knokke offers something the Hamptons does not: rentable, sectioned-off portions of private beach area. Here, there are public portions of the beach, but most of the sand is taken up by private boxes with loungers, sofas, and — of course — ice buckets filled with bottles of champagne.

The main street is lined with hundreds of shops. It’s clear that the prime pastimes here are #1: Shopping, #2: Spending time on the beach (or maybe it’s the reverse?? …hard to tell!).

Where the wealthy go to play

From the quaint Namur in the south, to the bustling metropolis of Brussels in the center, to the beachy Knokke in the north, Belgium has something for everyone. I highly recommend that you put a two week trip to Brussels on your travel schedule sometime soon. Personally, I’m counting down the days until I get to go back!
