Introducing Belgium

Belgium has more to offer than just chocolates, waffles, and beer (though, never worry, you'll find plenty of those things too!). This tiny European country is easy to overlook on your itinerary, but pencil in some time to visit its quaint towns and meander its idyllic streets, and you are sure to come away with some incredible memories of your travel in Belgium! 

Plan Your Trip to Belgium:

NEED TO KNOW

Language: You can certainly get by with English as a lot of Belgians speak conversational English well enough. However, if you want to have a more immersive experience, bring along a Flemish (Dutch) or French phrasebook.

Currency: Euro ($1 = ~0.91 euros).

Credit Cards & ATMs: Major establishments accept credit and debit cards, but smaller-scale accommodations, tourist sites and restaurants tend to only take cash. ATMs are widely available. 

Plugs: Type C or E, 230V / 50Hz. Bring this universal adapter

Safety: Other than the occasional petty crime and scams that are common to a lot of destinations, Belgium is a very safe place to visit for tourists. You just have to be mindful at all times. Still, it is a good idea to check the latest US State Department travel advisories for your destination.
