Customer Travel Tip: Take the train to Bruges, Antwerp, or Gent for day trips. You will be happy you did! Try the many types of craft beer.

Liked: Waffles

Disliked: There is not much to see and do in Brussels city center. You need to go to a smaller town once you´ve already done a walking tour and explored the city center (takes only a day, really). The cuisine is unimpressive, I´ve only ever heard of two things- Belgian fries and waffles.

Customer Travel Tip: You must go to the Grand Place in Brussells central.. (At night it looks more beautiful with all the lights.. Go and walk down the thin narrow alley ways and find clubs, shops, restaraunts etc..

Liked: People in Brussels are very freindly, try and speak a little french to them.. Everything you needed was all within a 1 km radius..

Disliked: Ive been twice now, and both times it rained in August.. But hey dont let the rain stop your fun.. You must walk down the main street near the metropole hotel at around 1am.. You can play ping pong, french bowls, chess outside in the middle of the street.. Sing songs with the students sat on the wooden ornaments.. now thats cools..

Customer Travel Tip: Make sure to check out the Museum of musical instruments for a quirky and ridiculously fun hour. The city is best traveled on foot.

Liked: A beautiful city well worth visiting with most less of a touristy vibe than neighboring Amsterdam or Paris .

Disliked: The outskirts of the city are not as pleasant as the city center and can appear unsafe after dark.
